  1. Soak skewers in water for 1 hour.
  2. Pound breasts between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. It should be about 1/4 inch thick. Cut in half lengthwise. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder on both sides.
  3. Cut cheese in to strips to fit lengthwise on pounded breast. Put a slice of jalapeno beside the piece of cheese. Roll the breast from the bottom, and set it down with the overlap down. Wrap with a whole piece of bacon around the ends to keep the cheese in as it cooks. Put on soaked wooden skewer.
  4. Grill over medium heat until done.

These were delicious, but not easy to make! The rolling process sounded easy, but my cheese crumbled and was hard to keep in. The bacon helped a little, but still hard to wrap tightly. I lost...

This is good, I'll try it again.After reading the previous review I cooked them in the oven and served them w/ ranch dressing, next time I'll grill them. They're kind of hard to roll up. If the...

I also baked these and they are incredible. I did use chicken thighs and cream cheese in the peppers instead and tastes delicious. The flavors just all blend so well. I did kick it up a notch...
