    CaliforniaJan's Note:

    Stuffed jalapeno peppers are wrapped in marinated chicken breasts. Tasty bacon seals the deal for a tasty, grilled tropical dinner, pair with a spicy rice dish!

      Loved it! And it came out perfectly juicy and delicious! (DH may have had something to do with that, as he is 'grill MASTER!' I'll be making this again and again, and may change the cream cheese stuffing (adding bacon and/or cheese) just a little. Thanks so much for sharing a wonderful recipe, CaliforniaJan!

      Oh WOW. I made one breast for myself this evening and it was instant love. Have to say that it was fun pounding the chicken flat as a pancake too. A popper inside a chicken breast! really, whats not to love? Tastes yummy, and I mean lots of flavor, plus you feel so calm after dinner. :D

      My husband loves this chicken recipe and he keeps bugging me to fix it for him. I use low fat dressing and reduced fat cream cheese to keep it healthier, but the applewood bacon is a must. In my opinion it makes it special and adds a lot of smokey flavor. This will be my go to chicken recipe this summer when we grill outside.
