Jalapeno stuffed chicken
Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner and part of our family tradition is to grill, even if it is raining. This recipe for jalapeno-stuffed chicken has just enough heat to warm you up even on a cold holiday and is tasty and tender. Enjoy.
Makes six servings
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 (16 oz.) bottle italian dressing
3 fresh jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
1 (3 oz) package light cream cheese, softened
6 slices of bacon
Place chicken breasts in a dish with the Italian dressing. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least two hours. Preheat the grill for high heat. Stuff each jalapeno half with cream cheese. Roll chicken breasts around jalapeno peppers. Wrap each chicken breast with a slice of bacon. Secure with toothpicks.
Lightly oil the grill grate. Arrange wrapped chicken breasts on the prepared grill. Cook for 20 minutes, turning frequently, or until bacon is browned and the chicken juices run clear.
