Cheese and Jalapeno Stuffed Chicken Breast

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Vickycatchytorie

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.
