How to keep your chicken moist while baking
This little trick is one that I love to share, and it’s so simple. Do you ever use a non-stick cooking spray? I like to spray my chicken with a olive oil based non-stick cooking spray before I bake or grill. This helps lock in the juices and keep the chicken moist. Easy!

Once you have sealed the chicken with cooking spray, place in an oven safe baking dish.
Spread the cream cheese over the chicken, and don’t be stingy! This really helps pack on the flavor. Slice the bell pepper and sweet peppers and top the chicken.
Bake on 375 for 35-40 minutes, or until chicken is fully cooked.
Top with shredded cheese and bacon and serve.
