Chicken Bombs

Pin It
Hubby is a big meat eater ... the red meat kind of meat.  Chicken and turkey ... eh, not too much so in order for me to coerce him into eating more chicken, I have to get inventive and/or find new recipes that I think he might like.  

I am constantly searching the web, blogs, Pinterest, and even old recipe books .... yes, actual books ... looking for something new and fresh.  

I ran across this recipe by Leslie the other day and it just looked delicious!  Noticing that Leslie included instructions for cooking them in the oven, I just had to try it last night.  

We are big pepper eaters and although the hot peppers are not to good for my father-in-law or my hubby due to ulcers, I love, love, love them!  Substituting sweet bell peppers for those two and keeping with the jalapeno peppers for me, I got to work creating this interesting dish.  

 sorry for the blurry pictures..the camera was just not cooperating!


Leslie makes the process look easy ... hah!  Now either I was doing something wrong or she is a master at creating flat chicken breasts.  Flattening those suckers was the hardest part.  Mine just didn't want to cooperate.  



The rest was fairly easy.  Cleaned and sliced the peppers, 



mixed the two cheeses,



add them to the flattened chicken breasts,




rolled them up....


                                    

carefully wrapped a couple of slicing of bacon


                         

and magically the bacon holds everything together nicely.  No toothpicks needed here!





Added the bbq sauce and cooked them in the oven for the allotted time.



The last 10 minutes or so I broiled them to crisp up the bacon.



The verdict?  A winner!  Both hubby and father-in-law loved them.  

The bacon probably helped.  LOL

Remember to give your loved ones a hug!
