Who doesn’t love jalapeno poppers? Who doesn’t love quick and easy low carb recipes? THIS GIRL! My husband makes some really yummy jalapeno poppers with deer meat and so I decided to recreate them using chicken. This low carb chicken recipe is filled with a cream cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, and diced jalapeno mixture then wrapped in bacon and baked to perfection. In my opinion, this is a slam dunk if you are looking for a quick and easy low carb dinner on a busy weeknight Not to mention you can’t go wrong with cream cheese and bacon together in one recipe!
Low Carb Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Chicken
4 chicken breasts, pounded thin
3-4 jalapeno, diced (If you can also use 2 or 3 if you don’t like “hot”)
4-5 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
8 slices of bacon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pound the chicken flat and season with salt and pepper. Then mix together cream cheese, shredded cheese, and diced jalapeno peppers and spread on to the chicken. Roll up the chicken breasts, wrap each one with two slices of bacon and place in a 9×13 baking dish. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.
