Jalapeno Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Jalapenos + cheese + bacon + chicken = winning combination and two thumbs up in the hubby's eyes.  I must say, he might not come up with the healthiest recipes in this world, but he does make being bad taste so good!

Jalapeno Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Serves 6

1-8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
2 jalapenos, finely diced (scoop the seeds out of one to reduce the heat if you want)
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 pounds chicken thighs, boneless and skinless
1 pound bacon
  1. Preheat oven to 450.
  2. Mix jalapeno, cream cheese, and garlic together until well combined; season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Take each chicken thigh and lay it out.
  4. Evenly divide the jalapeno cream cheese mixture amongst the chicken thighs.
  5. Roll up the chicken thighs around the cheese and wrap with 3 slices of bacon; secure with a toothpick.
  6. Place chicken in a greased baking dish.
  7. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until chicken is done (at 160 degrees) and bacon is crispy.
