Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.

Notes

  • If you want the jalapenos to have less heat, remove all the seeds and white ribs from the inside of the pepper.
