5 stars from 1 rating of Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Chicken

I love this recipe. My family is a huge fan of Jalapeno poppers; we eat them at least once every week. I always make a Bacon ranch chicken to go with them. A while back ago I went to make my poppers And I noticed I did not have all the Jalapenos needed to cover as much as my family eats. So I came up with this wonderful recipe. It is easy to make and will fill your craving for good Jalapeno poppers and become a stable at your dinner table. You can turn up the heat by leaving in seeds and veins or adding tobacco sauce if you like, these are on the mild end because so that kids can eat them also.

      These look delicious! Chicken, cream cheese, bacon and jalepenos are four of my favourite things. Thanks!
