Chicken Jalapeņo Roulades (Chicken Rolls)

The earlier thread about rolled chicken inspired me to concoct this:

Ingredients:

4 boneless chicken breast halves
2 medium to large jalapeņos
8 strips of bacon
1/4 cup scallions - chopped
4 oz cream cheese - room temp
1/4 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Procedure:

Cut jalapeņos in half lengthwise and remove stem, core and seeds. Mix cream cheese, pepper jack and scallions in a bowl and generously fill the jalapeņos with the mixture. Pound the chicken breasts to about 1/4" thick. Season with salt and pepper. Roll each stuffed pepper in one breast, then wrap with bacon and tie with butchers twine. Brown the roulades on med high heat on all sides. Transfer to baking dish and cook uncovered in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes, then increase temperature to 425 for 10 more minutes.

I just served them like this, and they were good, but they would be good with a green chili sauce too. I just wanted to go very basic for the first try, then experiment further another day.

Don't be afraid of the jalapeņos - there is no spicy heat to this recipe at all. When you remove the ribs and the core from the peppers, you remove the heat too. The tiny bit that might remain is easily cooled by the cheese.

Sounds good Rick. I'll bet you could smoke them as another option. They're like ABTs with chicken.

Sounds delicious Rick. I can see doing this with slices of pounded pork tenderloin also.
