Instructions Checklist

  • Combine cream cheese, Cheddar cheese, jalapenos, garlic powder, and barbecue seasoning in a bowl. Mix well until evenly combined.

  • Cut a deep pocket into each chicken breast, being careful not to cut all the way through to the other side. Fill the pocket of each chicken breast with cream cheese mixture. Wrap each chicken breast with 3 slices of bacon.

  • Place a baking rack on top of a baking sheet and place stuffed chicken on top of the rack.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.40

Cook's Note:

If your chicken is done but the bacon has not crisped up to your liking, turn on the broiler for a few minutes until desired crispness.

I did not change a thing. The Jalapeno has a very good taste with the bacon. Just hot enough. Marlene Read More

This is a very flavorful recipe and a good filling to amp up a plain chicken breast. I would definitely recommend trying this recipe if you like jalapeno poppers and bacon! Read More

Made it as close as I possibly could to these specs with what I had at home. Absolutely will be making it again! Delicious and amazingly juicy considering the length of time that it's in the oven. The jalapeños were very mild though after baking. I might try something hotter next time. Read More

These turned out perfect. I jam packed each breast with cheese mixture and placed them on racked pan slit side up. Had two huge breasts so baked for 50 minutes. Cheese oozed out a bit but the chicken was juicy and delicious. Scored points with hubby for this meal. Read More

Made it with an added bit of hot sauce (3 squirts) and sprinkled a little cayenne powder on top. My wife liked it so that’s what counts. Read More
