Chicken spread with cream cheese and jalapenos, rolled and wrapped with bacon, then grilled. Recipe adapted from Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 chicken tenders, flattened and cut in two (flattening meat inside a zip-lock bag)
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped (or more to taste)
  • 8 slices bacon, cut in half
  • toothpick


  1. Season with salt and pepper the chicken pieces.
  2. Dab 1/2 teaspoon (more or less) of cream cheese on top of each chicken tender. Sprinkle a scant 1/4 teaspoon of peppers over cream cheese. Fold or roll chicken to enclose cream cheese mixture. Wrap each roll with one piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
  3. Grill until bacon is brown and crispy on both sides, about 10 minutes.
