skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/4 inch thickness
1 (16 ounce) bottle
fresh jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
1 (3 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
I LOVED THIS! Modified it though. I don't like Italian, so I marinade it in lemon juice and Jamaican jerk and scrapped the bacon. Too much fat! Also, baked in a pan coated with olive oil at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Good good stuff!
Was disappointed with this recipe. It took a bit of time and was looking forward to it but overall for all the time it took was not worth the effort.
We make this recipe but in a much different way...as an appetizer....and it is wonderful!! It gets gobbled up quickly for football games and cookouts. You will need considerably more jalapeno peppers..deseeded of course.
Cut the chicken into much smaller strips. Fill the jalapeno with the cream cheese (you can almost cut it with a knife off the block) put the smaller chicken strip on top of the cream cheese and wrap a slice of bacon around your jalapeno, cream cheese, and chicken. Then cook on the grill for a great appetizer...Yummy
Wonderful recipe! I made this at a family cookout and it was a hit. Used the jalepenos in a jar so they were very juicy, but not too spicy. Now I crave this every time we barbeque!
This recipe was great! I used 2 slices of bacon to wrap each chicken breast, one length-wise and one width-wise, to keep the cream cheese from melting out. I would recommend NOT using thick-cut bacon if you like your bacon crispy. It was really easy, too!
YUM YUM and YUM! Loved this! I marinated it in italian dressing, but i think it would be really good to do a margarita marinade. This recipe is a keeper! It would also make a really great appetizer by scaling down the sizes.
This is a nice something different! I mixed my 1/3 less fat cream cheese w/some 2% shredded cheddar for a little extra in the middle. My peppers weren't all that spicy, but this was a nice dish. I did have to use more bacon than called for the wrap the chicken (I was afraid the cheeses would ooze out). TY!
I just love this recipe (wrapping anything in bacon appeals wildly to me). I use a whole jalapeno, split and seed it, stuff with cream cheese and then reassemble. Never thought of using salad dressing to marinate before--it feels like cheating, but it sure turns out well and the results are great. Add some bagels to your shopping list and you can use the leftover bacon and cream cheese for, well, cream cheese and bacon bagels...mmmmmmmm.
