Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts boneless and skinless
  • 20 slices bacon do not use thick cut - about 4-5 slices per breast

Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Cheese Stuffing:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley

  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl, mix together all the GLAZE ingredients.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together all the CHEESE STUFFING ingredients.
  • Lengthwise, cut a pocket into each chicken breast. Stuff with the cheese mixture, dividing equally.
  • Wrap each chicken breast in 4-5 slices of bacon. Place the chicken breasts, seam side down in a lightly greased baking pan.
