Prep Time15 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time45 mins
Ingredients:
 2 chicken breasts
 2 jalapenos
 4 oz cream cheese
 ½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded
 8 bacon
 ½ cup barbecue sauce
 salt
 pepper
Directions:
1

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

2

Cut your chicken breasts in half lengthwise and pound them between two sheets of parchment paper or plastic wrap until they are thin. Season with salt and pepper.

3

Cut the jalapenos in half. If you want them to be extra spicy, you can leave the seeds in the peppers. However, I usually scrape the seeds out and rinse the peppers.

4

In a small bowl, mix together the cheddar cheese and cream cheese until combined.

5

Fill each jalapeno half with the cheese mixture, then place it cheese side down on the chicken.

6

Roll the chicken around the cheese stuffed pepper.

7

Wrap each chicken breast with 2 pieces of bacon, tucking the ends of the bacon in to hold it all together.

8

Bake for 20 minutes, flipping once.

9

Turn the oven temperature down to 375°F. Remove chicken from the oven and coat with barbecue sauce. Return to oven and bake for 5-6 minutes. Then broil for 1-2 minutes to crisp up the bacon.
