  • Pound breasts between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. It should be about 1/4 inch thick. Cut in half lengthwise. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder on both sides.

  • Cut cheese in to strips to fit lengthwise on pounded breast. Put a slice of jalapeno beside the piece of cheese. Roll the breast from the bottom, and set it down with the overlap down. Wrap with a whole piece of bacon around the ends to keep the cheese in as it cooks. Put on soaked wooden skewer.

  • Grill over medium heat until done.

These were really good. I did bake them instead of grilling. I put them on a cooling rack on a cookie sheet and baked at 400 for 35 minutes. They came out really good. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This is good I'll try it again.After reading the previous review I cooked them in the oven and served them w/ ranch dressing next time I'll grill them. They're kind of hard to roll up. If they're not better on the grill I won't keep this one. Read More

Great recipe. I cut up the bacon and cooked it crisp and rolled it inside with the cheese instead of on the outside and baked it in the oven. My husband said it's a hit- especially good with a ranch dressing! Read More

This recipe was amazing! We have 5 children from 9 - 3 and they all liked it. We did two things a bit different. First we used Jalapeno/Monteray Jack cheese in the middle instead of a jalapeno because of the kids. Second we wrapped two or three pieces of bacon two wrapped the length and one wrapped around the middle to make sure the cheese wouldn't all come out. It worked really well on the grill. Read More

This was an excellent recipe. I cooked my bacon half way and used it to keep the cheese and peppers inside the chicken using toothpicks. I will make this again but I don't think I will ever cook on the grill because of the other reviewers problems with the bacon grease smoking up the grill. Read More

These were delicious but not easy to make! The rolling process sounded easy but my cheese crumbled and was hard to keep in. The bacon helped a little but still hard to wrap tightly. I lost most of my cheese during the grilling. That said it was delicious and I'll try it again next time I'll cut the skewers in half and use a softer cheese. Read More

I give it four stars my husband really liked it and my son loved everything but the cheese. It was a bit salty with the turkey bacon to me and I don't really like salt. So next time I will skip the bacon for me and add more jalapeno. (I didn't use as much as the recipe said to and I should had.) Read More

I also baked these and they are incredible. I did use chicken thighs and cream cheese in the peppers instead and tastes delicious. The flavors just all blend so well. I did kick it up a notch on the seasonings with a sprinkle of cayenne pepper and some italian herbs. WILL MAKE AGAIN! Read More
