  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Set a wire rack on top of a baking sheet.
  2. Mix cream cheese, green onion, jalapeno pepper, salt, and pepper together in a bowl.
  3. Pound chicken tenders into a rectangular shape with the flat side of a meat tenderizer. Place 3 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture in the middle of each tender; fold into a pouch.
  4. Wrap a slice of bacon around each pouch and secure with a toothpick. Top with some pepper jelly. Arrange on the wire rack.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until bacon is crisp and chicken juices run clear, about 35 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Be advised that the recipe can be very spicy if you leave the jalapeno pepper membranes intact before chopping.

The family loved them. I followed the directions as it was written because it was the first time making them.

I've found that pickled jalapeños work better than fresh. Also my version would put a small taste of BBQ sauce on the chicken followed by a sprinkle of brown sugar replacing the pepper jelly.

These were a great change!! I didn't have any jalapeños but I had Philadelphia spicy jalapeño spread and used it instead and it worked great!

I do not cook often and this was the first time I ever tried making stuffed chicken and I have to say I'm proud of myself! :) I didn't have fresh, so I used canned and it came out pretty good bu...

I didn't use any jalapeno because my husband hates them. This recipe still came out wonderful.

Didn't have the pepper jelly but followed the recipe otherwise and it was a huge hit

Loved this! Enough said! You really don't even need the pepper jelly because these stand out on their own without it. Perfect and thank you for sharing!
