I love this bacon wrapped chicken. It's tasty and makes a beautiful presentation when sliced and served.
Cut each chicken breast in half lengthwise to make two thin pieces. If still not thin enough, pound out to make thinner.
Cut each jalapeno in half lengthwise (de-seed and de-vein for less heat if you choose - I personally don't.)
On each chicken piece, put a 1/2 inch slice of cream cheese and 1/2 of a jalapeno, and then sprinkle with a little garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Roll the chicken around the pepper and cream cheese and wrap 2 to 3 pieces of bacon around it and secure with toothpicks. I lightly sprinkle the chicken bacon roll with McCormicks Montreal Steak Seasoning.
These can be cooked outside on the grill for 35-45 minutes or so. They also can be cooked in a 375 oven for 45 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. The bacon will be crisp on the outside.
These are yummy! We've been making them long before I was low carb, so yes, everyone will love them.
