"These are great appetizers for any gathering. You can add jalapenos if you like it spicy but I prefer without."
1 1/2 lbs
boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 (16 ounce) packages
chive & onion cream cheese
Slice chicken as though you were going to make chicken strips and flatten between saran wrap. Half each strip of bacon. In a small bowl mix the brown sugar and chili powder.
Spread cream cheese on each piece and lay on a piece of bacon and roll up. Secure with toothpick. (This is when you could have added the jalepeno.) Roll each piece in the sugar/chili mixture and place on lined baking sheet. Sprinkle the extra sugar/chili mixture on top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes Then put under broiler for about 5 more minutes.
