2 boneless, skinned chicken breasts

¼ cup half and half

Directions:

2. Combine onion rings, mustard, parmesan cheese and celery salt in a small bowl just until the mixture is moist enough to hold together.

4. Place one strip of bacon on each chicken breast.
5. Preheat the oven or grill to 350 degrees F.
