The basic idea was to stuff the chicken with all of the flavours of a href="http://www.closetcooking.com/2009/04/jalapeno-poppers.html"jalapeno poppers/a and then to wrap them in bacon and grill or bake them. Jalapeno poppers are commonly filled with cream cheese and or cheddar cheese and they are either coated in bread crumbs and fried until crispy or wrapped in bacon and grilled or baked until cooked. Although I liked the sound of a crispy coating on the chicken the bacon wrapping was calling my name and I could not resist going with that option! For the filling I went with a simple mixture of cream cheese, cheddar and diced jalapeno peppers. The bacon wrapped jalapeno popper stuffed chicken tastes just like jalapeno poppers and makes for one really tasty light meal!br /br //diva href="http://www.closetcooking.com/2012/11/bacon-wrapped-jalapeno-popper-stuffed.html#more"Read the recipe »/a
