Jalapeño Cheese Stuffed Chicken Wrapped in Bacon Recipe

    • 4 oz Cream Cheese
    • 1 Jalapeno, seeded and small diced
    • 1 tsp Sugar
    • 1 tsp Salt
    • 2 boneless Chicken Breast halves
    • 4 slices Center Cut Bacon
    • Salt, Pepper
    • Vegetable Oil


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, jalapeños, sugar and salt. Refrigerate  for at least one hour.
    3. Meanwhile pound chicken breast halves. Loosely wrap in plastic wrap and beat with a meat pounder of the bottom of a saute pan (my favorite method).
    4. Salt and pepper both side of breast and stuff the middle of one breast with half the cream cheese mixture. Wrap breast around mixture as best as you can. Next wrap in two slices of bacon and pin with toothpicks to deal the edges. Use toothpicks horizontally so you can grill the flat side of the breast evenly (which will be your presentation side).
    5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and coat a sauté pan with vegetable oil. Once oil is sizzling hot place the bacon wrapped breast flat side down and sear for at least 5 minutes. Flip chicken and sear on other side a few minutes. Remove the toothpicks. Put in the oven for 10 minutes to finish cooking.
    6. Serve warm out of the oven with any side dish.

    Note:  2 portions, serve with a salad- or/and potatoes.
