Bacon Wrapped Chicken Stuffed with Cream Cheese and Jalapenos

 This is a delicious entree that is very hearty. It is simple to make as well. There are only five ingredients if you include the Tony Chachere’s you sprinkle over the top before you put it in the oven.

 All you need to get started is:

  1. Package of boneless/skinless chicken breasts
  2. Package of bacon
  3. Jar of Jalapenos
  4. Package of cream cheese

Lay out the chicken breasts. For a more healthy portion I recommend using an electric knife and slicing the thick chicken breasts into two thinner pieces of breast each. This will also turn 3 servings into 6 more healthy servings. This is also a good idea if you are going to be serving a couple of additional side items or having salad (and/or dessert) with the meal.

 

Spread cream cheese on the chicken. I prefer to use diced jalapenos. That isn’t what I happened to have so I put the sliced jalapenos in a bowl and cut them up and then spooned them over the chicken. I think you get a better flavor using diced jalapenos and juice. Notice I don’t give exact measurements for the cream cheese and chicken. That’s because I didn’t get the recipe from anywhere. I just eyeball it. In fact, as you can see I hit it heavy because I don’t make it often and it is what I consider a delicious indulgence. You can go lighter and it will probably taste just as good and be twice as healthy. I know it will smell terrific.

Roll up the stuffed chicken pieces. Use toothpicks to help hold it together as you find necessary. Wrap the delight in pieces of your favorite bacon. Sprinkle Tony Chachere’s on top. You can use ground pepper but Tony’s has the heat that complements the chicken without overpowering it with that black pepper flavor.  Bake in a 400 degree F oven for about 45 minutes to an hour. If you are doing a larger batch then bake for 1 hour to an hour and 15 minutes. Use your judgment. I just keep an eye on it.

Yummy!!

I wish you could scratch and sniff the monitor. Give this one a try. It’s very good!

  1. You will need to use a small wire rack in the baking dish. That’s probably the only way to keep the chicken breasts from baking in the bacon grease.
