Hmmm. I really, really did not like the cream cheese in this. Weird, since I like cream cheese in other things. Otherwise, chicken marinated in italian dressing - Check! Chicken stuffed with Jalapeno - Check! Chicken wrapped in bacon - Check! What to do? I think I'll try cheddar next time instead. That cream cheese really wrecked it for me. Also, I think the meat could use seasoning besides the marinate (I marinated for about 4 hours). Maybe that depends on what you use for the marinate. I used jalapenos from the freezer, so they were soft after thawing. I like heat so I used 1 pepper per serving. Still not that hot for me. Otherwise kept to the recipe. Also (this is my fault not the recipe so I did not count this in the star rating) I baked at 400 for 25 min. The bacon was still not crispy so I broiled for a couple min. I ended up with over cooked chicken. Not too bad, still good to eat. Need to find a way to cook this that doesn't rely on a grill, doesn't over cook the chicken and crisps the bacon. I should try the pan-frying suggestions that are in the previous reviews. I'll definitely revisit this one without the cream cheese.
