Jalapeno Cream Cheese stuffed Bacon wrapped Chicken

The Jalapeno Cream Cheese stuffed Bacin wrapped chicken should be prepared about an hour before serving. The preparation time includes a little bit of time for cooking the bacon and assembling the chicken. It only takes about 10 minutes for the active preparation time. Before you start cooking, you need to pound the chicken breasts thin. This will make them easier to wrap the filling. The cream cheese should be hard enough to stick to the pepper.

  • 4 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1 Jalapeno seeded and small diced
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 boneless Chicken Breast halves
  • 4 slices Center Cut Bacon
  • Salt Pepper
  • Vegetable Oil


  • preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a small bowl, combine cream cheese, jalapeños, sugar and salt. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
  • Meanwhile pound chicken breast halves. Loosely wrap in plastic wrap and beat with a meat pounder of the bottom of a saute pan (my favorite method).
  • Salt and pepper both side of breast and stuff the middle of one breast with half the cream cheese mixture. Wrap breast around mixture as best as you can. Next wrap in two slices of bacon and pin with toothpicks to deal the edges. Use toothpicks horizontally so you can grill the flat side of the breast evenly (which will be your presentation side).
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and coat a sauté pan with vegetable oil. Once oil is sizzling hot place the bacon wrapped breast flat side down and sear for at least 5 minutes. Flip chicken and sear on other side a few minutes. Remove the toothpicks. Put in the oven for 10 minutes to finish cooking.
  • Serve warm out of the oven with any side dish, I made a simple side salad.



After the chicken breasts are stuffed, pound them thin. You may need to use two forks or a rolling pin. This will help to keep the chicken breasts intact while baking. Place the chicken breasts on a baking sheet. Cover with the bacon. Cook until crisp. When done, bast the stuffed chicken with a sour cream mixture and bake until cooked.
