  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.

I LOVED THIS! Modified it though. I don't like Italian, so I marinade it in lemon juice and Jamaican jerk and scrapped the bacon. Too much fat! Also, baked in a pan coated with olive oil at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. Good good stuff!



We make this recipe but in a much different way...as an appetizer....and it is wonderful!! It gets gobbled up quickly for football games and cookouts. You will need considerably more jalapeno peppers..deseeded of course. Cut the chicken into much smaller strips. Fill the jalapeno with the cream cheese (you can almost cut it with a knife off the block) put the smaller chicken strip on top of the cream cheese and wrap a slice of bacon around your jalapeno, cream cheese, and chicken. Then cook on the grill for a great appetizer...Yummy

Wonderful recipe! I made this at a family cookout and it was a hit. Used the jalepenos in a jar so they were very juicy, but not too spicy. Now I crave this every time we barbeque!
