Jalapeno Popper Chicken
(Courtesy: Amanda Buswell)
1 boneless skinless chicken breast (6 oz)
2 tbls cream cheese (1 oz)
3 tbls shredded cheddar cheese
1 jalapeno pepper, diced
Salt and pepper to taste
2 slices bacon
Preheat the oven to 375℉.
Place the cream cheese, cheddar cheese and jalapenos in a bowl; stir to combine.
Cut a deep pocket into the chicken breast, taking care not to cut all the way through to the other side. Fill the pocket of chicken breast with the cream cheese mixture. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
Wrap chicken breast tightly with bacon and place in a greased baking pan.
Cook for 30 minutes, or until bacon is crisp and chicken has an internal temperature of 160℉. You can broil the chicken for 3-4 minutes to further crisp the bacon if needed.
Let the chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving.
