Jalapeño Popper Stuffed Chicken


This Jalapeño Popper Stuffed Chicken is a delicious creamy filled chicken dish with a spicy kick. I regularly make this jalapeño popper stuffed chicken on our Saturday movie nights. Now that the kids are older, they are open to trying new dishes and this chicken went down a treat with the whole family last time I made it. 

I make this chicken in the hasselback style meaning that I make horizontal incisions half an inch apart, taking care not to slice right through the chicken breast. I then stuff these incisions with a cream cheese mixture, bacon and jalapeño peppers. This combination of ingredients makes my jalapeño popper stuffed chicken tasty and delicious! 

To make Jalapeño Popper Stuffed Chicken, you will need the following ingredients:

Loved this popper jalapeno stuffed chicken more than the sweet and spicy one, it had a lot more flavor to it.

If you really want to bring out a blast of flavors in your mouth I'd say squeeze some lemon on the bad boy! You won't regret it.

This wasn't bad at all but my mouth can't handle jalapenos apparently and nor can my stomach since I got kinda sick afterwards, felt like my bum was on fire ahhaha.

Not my favorite stuffed chicken but it'll work when I want something spicy.

Easily one of my favorite stuffed chicken meals along with the sundried tomato one which is actually a lot more juicy.
