    Vickycatchytorie's Note:

    I love bacon jalapeño poppers and by adding the same ingredients to chicken breasts...you can have a whole meal with that jalapeño popper flavor. For less fat use low fat cheeses and center cut bacon.

      Great recipe, made them the other night without bacon and just as good.

      Absolutely loved this recipe. Couple small changes... I marinated the chicken in some jerk sauce. I didn't add the shredded jack cheese & instead put a slice of swiss chard (or can use spinach) on each breast before wrapping them up. Cooked up great & was very very tasty, thanks for sharing.

      Bacon was not done on bottom of chicken, but it was good so I am going to try it again and make alterations.
