“This chicken can be spicy or mild but whichever way you choose it is definitely born in Texas! Add avocado, black olives or pico de gallo to the inside of the breasts for variation. For milder tastes, remove seeds from jalapenos.”

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Lay the chicken breasts out flat and sprinkle with Ranch-style dressing mix. Sprinkle a bit of cheese onto each half of each breast. Place 2 tomato slices and a sliced jalapeno pepper onto each one, and sprinkle more cheese over the tomato and pepper. Fold each piece of chicken over, and wrap with 2 slices of bacon. Secure with toothpicks. Place wrapped chicken into a baking dish, and cover with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the chicken is no longer pink, and the juices run clear.

This chicken was excellent for us...and even the kids. I took all the seeds out of the jalapenos except for one so it wouldn't be too spicy. Only problem: The bacon turned out soggy, so I broiled both top and bottom, but the sides were soggy. Maybe next time I'll try to cook the bacon a bit first OR maybe not even roll up the chicken and just put everything on top of the chicken, then broil...the bacon will be more evenly cooked. The combination of all the flavors was great. I definitely recommend it...don't be afraid of the jalapenos if you don't like it spicy...just take out most seeds.



I thought this was quite tasty. I pounded the chicken pieces but after putting all the ingredients on the chicken, I couldn't get them to roll up so I just laid them out flat and baked the chicken that a way. It still turned out well. I did cook the bacon a little first in the microwave oven.



This was absolutely amazing. It tastes much more complex than it was to make! I made it for dinner with friends and everyone loved it.
