Jalapeno Chicken

This is a recipe my husband and I tried back in the early stages of our family and we loved it. We have made a few adaptations as far as prep goes but I have included it as it is in the cookbook (for convenience sake)


  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/4 inch thickness
  • 1 (16 ounce) bottle Italian dressing
  • 3 fresh jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 6 slices bacon
  • toothpicks


  1. Place chicken breasts in a dish with the Italian dressing. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours.
  2. Preheat the grill for high heat.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
