  • Using a rolling pin wrapped in plastic, pound out chicken breasts to about 1/2 inch in thickness. In the center of the breast place 2 or 3 slices of jalapeno and 3 tablespoons of cheese. Roll chicken up from the narrowest point to the widest. Wrap with 2 slices of bacon and secure with toothpicks.

  • Heat oil and black pepper in a deep skillet over medium high heat. Cook chicken wraps until they begin to brown. Reduce heat, cover and cook an additional 10 to 15 minutes, checking periodically, until chicken is no longer pink inside. Remove chicken from heat, cover and set aside.

  • Return skillet to medium high heat. To the drippings add flour, stirring to remove any lumps. Slowly add wine, stirring constantly until sauce thickens. Remove from heat.

  • In a small bowl combine red bell pepper and corn.

  • Place a medium sized mound of rice in the center of a plate. Tuck a few blue corn chips along the edge of the rice. Place chicken on rice, spoon sauce over chicken and sprinkle with 3 tablespoons of red pepper and corn mixture.

I didn't have bacon in the house at the time and i didn't have the time for the sauce. My husband really hated it. It was bland. After rereading the recipe i realize what a difference the bacon would have made i will remake this again and let you guys know how it turns out. Read More

I diced up the jalapenos and ended up not making the sauce (ran out of time). The chicken/pepper/cheese/bacon combination was WONDERFUL! My husband and I both loved it. This is a new family favorite for sure! Edit: My hubby and I still love this recipe but I've made some modifications so it's quicker to make. I've still not made the sauce because the chicken by itself is so good. What I do now is dice the chicken and cook in a pan with a little bit of oil. Then I sprinkle on cooked crumbled bacon the chopped jalapenos (I use jarred) and the shredded cheese. Put the lid on and let it cook till the cheese melts. It takes a fraction of the time but still tastes delicious! Read More

Really good! I baked the chicken instead of cooking it in a skillet and I didn't bother with the corn chips. I also microwaved the bacon for a couple of minutes prior to wrapping it round the chicken so that it crisped up nicely in the oven. Next time I'll add some fresh cilantro to the corn/bell pepper mixture. Good stuff! Thanks Sophie! Read More

This is a fairly easy recipe to make. The jalapenos gave it a nice spicy taste. I ruined my sauce so I can't tell you what that was like. It's a very colorful dish which makes a nice presentation for your dish. I will make it again and hopefully I won't ruin my sauce. Read More

This was very good. I used turkey bacon instead to make it a little more low fat. I used diced green chilies in place of the jalapenos.l I also left out the pepper and corn at the end. It didn't really seem necessary. I served it over yellow rice. When the husband says "you should make this again" I know it was good! Read More

My friends sons made this a few day ago and invited my family. I wasn't sure my husband or my 10 y.o.would like it.They used pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar and the sauce was to be doubled. I told the boys to add some chicken broth and not use the doubled amount of flour it would be too much. They ended up ony needing a few TBS of flour.They also put the chicken under the broiler to crisp up the bacon. The first thing my husband said was "This is GOOD" after a few more bites he said it was the best chicken he ever had. He took the jalapenos out but liked the flavor they left behind. My 10 year old really liked it too it was a great meal. Read More
