    Lusil's Note:

    I found this recipe on another web site and decided to make it for dinner last evening. Everyone loved it. Chicken breasts are wrapped around a cheese stuffed jalapeno, then sealed with bacon and grilled. Yummy!

      Easy recipe and great flavor. I will use thinly sliced chicken breasts next time, rather than pounding thin. Made this for dinner guests and was very yummy!
