Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Popper Chicken

Saturday night Derek and I decided to eat in, which almost never happens on the weekend, but we actually  ate in Friday and Saturday, so that's a double money saving win right there. Anyways, I saw this recipe over at Closet Cooking and decided that I had to give it a try! I think next time I would probably saute the jalapenos first because they didn't cook much so they were practically raw and almost burned my face off! So if you make this- cook the jalapenos!
  • 4 small chicken breasts, pounded thin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 jalapenos, diced
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 8 slices bacon
  1. Lay the chicken flat, season both sides with salt and pepper, place 1/4 of the mixture of the jalapenos, cream cheese and cheddar on the chicken and roll them up.
  2. Wrap each chicken breast up in 2 slices of bacon and place them in a baking dish.
  3. Bake in a pre-heated 400F oven until cooked, about 25-35 minutes.
