- 4 medium-sized chicken breasts about 4 oz each
- 8 strips bacon
- 3 jalapeno peppers seeds and veins removed
- 1/4 cup cream cheese
- 1/4 cup cheddar cheese shredded
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 375° F.
Slice the chicken lengthwise down the middle without piercing all the way through, to form a pocket.
Remove the seeds and veins (if less heat is desired) from the jalapenos and dice them.
Mix together the diced jalapeno, cream cheese, cheddar, garlic salt and pepper.
Stuff the mixture evenly into each chicken breast.
Wrap each chicken breast with 2 strips of bacon, in a tight spiral pattern, making sure not to overlap the bacon.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the chicken breast for about 5 minutes on each side, to brown the bacon.
Gently place the chicken in a 9” x 13” baking dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove when the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165° F.
- If you want the jalapenos to have less heat, remove all the seeds and white ribs from the inside of the pepper.
