This recipe is from the Six Ingredients with Six Sisters’ Stuff cookbook.  It was something different so we gave it a try and really liked it.  You can serve this with anything you want on the side: rice, noodles, veggies, a big salad, etc. Image from


  • 1 1/2 lb. boneless chicken breasts, sliced so that you have 6 very thin pieces, pounded

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1, 7.5 oz carton chive & onion cream cheese spread

  • 6 slices bacon


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Coat a broiler-safe 9×13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Prepare your chicken breasts. Slice so that they are ¼ inch thick and then pound them. Season with salt and pepper. Spread 1-2 tablespoons cream cheese spread over each chicken breast.
  • Roll up each chicken breast and then wrap or roll a piece of bacon around it. Secure with a toothpick, if necessary, and lay seam-side down in prepared pan.
  • Bake 30 minutes, turning chicken over after 20 minutes. Adjust oven temperature and broil on high 2-5 minutes on each side until bacon becomes crisp. Be careful when broiling, as things can burn very quickly! Enjoy!

What Are You Optimizing For? | Chris Hutchins | Ep 423

Sometimes on the journey to FI, we ask ourselves the following; do I really need to spend money on this? Do I really have the time and resources for that? These questions may be easy to dismiss by saying no in order to stay on track with your financial goals, but by dismissing them, you could be missing out on something that is beneficial to your personal journey! This week we are joined by friend of the podcast, Chris Hutchins, to talk about the hacks for optimizing your life, the differences between cheapness and frugality, and the importance of valuing your time and what it can lead to. Saving money is an important part of achieving FI, but you should never feel so restricted that you miss out on investing your time and money in things that bring joy and value into your life. While saving is important, it’s okay to spend money. Whether it’s on a trip or investing in something new, there are ways to make it work without feeling guilt or shame. Prioritizing and valuing your time can introduce new experiences and provide happiness as well as perspective while on this journey!
