Jalapeno Popper Chicken




I've been trying to be a bit more picky with giving recipes 5 stars but I just can't find anything wrong with this chicken. It just doesn't deserve 4 stars. It didn't do anything wrong so it shouldn't be punished! I found this recipe on Mommie Cooks via Pinterest and boy am I glad I did. I had some cilantro that I needed to use and I really love making cream sauces with cream cheese or Laughing Cow so this was right up my alley for the night. It was only sort of jalapeno popper tasting but that doesn't even matter because these are some fabulous flavors mixed together. If you like jalapeno, cilantro and bacon then this is the recipe for you! *INDUCTION FRIENDLY*

5 STARS
3 servings
3.3 net carbs per serving

3 chicken breasts
a sprinkle of cumin (I used about 1/2 tsp)
a sprinkle of chili powder (I used about 1/2 tsp)
a light sprinkle of salt
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 jalapenos, seeded and chopped (we are wimps so we just used 1 but I recommend 3)
4 oz full fat cream cheese
3/4 cup chicken broth
3 slices of bacon, chopped
1 TBSP chopped fresh cilantro (can use 1 tsp dried but I don't recommend)
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Pan fry the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon but leave grease. Sprinkle cumin, chili and salt on each side of chicken breasts and pan fry in the bacon grease until cooked through, flipping half way. Remove chicken and keep warm. Throw chopped jalapeno and garlic in pan and cook for approximately 2 minutes over medium heat. Add chicken broth, scraping and deglazing the leftover yummies in the pan. Add cream cheese and stir in until melted. Add shredded cheddar and stir until melted. Add bacon crumbles and cilantro, stirring through for a minute or so. Spoon sauce over chicken.

Wow! Very creative. Are the chicken breasts boneless, skinned? I like bone in breasts, may bake them in my covered pyrex casserole and then add the fiixin's minus the cheese.
Thanks for the idea.

These were boneless skinless chicken breasts. I always forget to specify that! It could be easily modified to your chicken preferences, just like your yummy suggestion though!

Adding this to my rotation. Sounds fantastic. Any veggie recs for a side? Seems like that sauce would be great over broccoli.
