Okay, on whim while talking with my BFF we came up with this delightful chicken recipe. When I say came up with I mean we’ve seen similar ideas around but I just used what I had on hand and came up with this particular dish. I hope you enjoy it. It got 5 thumbs up from the fam.
- 3 large chicken breasts or 6 small
- 4 oz. of cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup of pepper jack cheese, shredded
- 4-6 jalapenos, diced (You decide how hot you like it)
- 6 slices of bacon
- favorite bbq sauce
If using large breasts cut in half through the middle (not lengthwise). Take one end and make a slit through the middle making sure not to go all the way through to the back. This is your pocket for the stuffing.
Meanwhile grab a small mixing bowl and add your cream cheese, pepper jack cheese and chopped jalapenos and mix together.
Now take your mixture and stuff about a tablespoon or so into your chicken pocket. Place into a baking dish that has been rubbed with bbq sauce. Now take your bacon, cut it in half and lay the pieces over your chicken. Finally, take your bbq sauce and slop it alllll over your chicken.
Cook in a 400 degree oven for approximately 40 minutes or until juices run clear.
