Ingredients

  • 2 large chicken breast or 4 small
  • 3-4 pieces of bacon for chicken breast
  • 3 jalapenos diced small
  • 4 oz cream cheese softened
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • To butterfly each chicken breast, slice them in half lengthwise, almost all the way. Don't cut all the way through, so that you can open the chicken breast like a book.  Flatten the thicker parts a bit by pounding with a meat mallet or rolling pin.
  • Mix the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and diced jalapeno together in a bowl. (you can add cooked chopped bacon here instead of wrapping it around, if you choose)
  • Divide the filling between chicken breasts then close them again.
  • Wrap each stuffed chicken breast in bacon.
  • Heat a frying pan over medium, fry each chicken for 4-5 minutes per side, or until bacon is crispy.
  • Preheat oven to 375. Bake chicken for 25 minutes.

Notes

For a quick optional sauce, fry a few cloves of garlic, add whatever filling is left behind on the baking sheet after baking the chicken, then thin out with some cream, whisking to make a sauce.
