Today I am participating in the Blog Hop Favorite Recipes. I think this is a great idea as we can all get new dishes to make for our families. Yeah! One of my new favorite recipes to make for my husband is Jalapeno Chicken. My sister Amie made this for us when we went to her home in May and we have made it for several of our friends and they love it! I hope you give it a try and come back and tell me how much you enjoyed the chicken.
6 skinless boneless chicken breasts halves - pounded to 1/4 inch thickness
1 (16 ounce) bottle Italian dressing
3 fresh jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
6 slices bacon
1. Place chicken breasts in a dish with the Italian dressing. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours
2. Preheat the grill for high heat
3. I take all the seeds out of the jalapenos! Stuff each jalapeno half with cream cheese. Roll chicken breasts around jalapeno peppers. Wrap each chicken breast with a slice of bacon. Secure with toothpicks.
4. Lightly oil the grill grate. Arrange wrapped chicken breasts on the prepared grill. Cook for 20 minutes, turning frequently, or until bacon is browned and the chicken juices run clear.
I have made Broccoli Salad or Wilted Lettuce as a side dish. They go very well with this main course. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
