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

  • Garnish
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley

Directions

  • 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.
  • Top with the glaze mixture.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until bacon is crispy and chicken is cooked through, basting the chicken occasionally with the pan drippings.
  • If you prefer extra crispy bacon, broil for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with parsley, then serve.
