Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Chicken

Ingredients

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

4 large jalapenos

100g cream cheese

80g cheddar cheese grated

1 Tablespoon Bedford Banger BBQ sauce

Smokey streaky bacon or Pancetta

Instructions

Preheat oven to 200 deg C.

Place the jalapenos in pan of hot water & cook for 3 mins just to soften slightly

Cut the tops off the Jalapenos & try & scrape out as much of the membrane & seeds as possible. This is to make space for the cheese filling. You can always slice the Jalapenos in half lengthways if easier

In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese & cheddar cheese. Get a sharp skinny knife & insert into the fat end of the chicken breast. Make a cavity big enough to fit the Jalapeno in. Insert one filled pepper inside of each chicken breast. You can fill the hole with an off cut of the chicken breast

Wrap each chicken breast with slices of bacon. Secure the bacon ends with toothpicks, if necessary.

Place the chicken in a frying pan & fry for 5 mins both sides. Place in your pre heated oven for 15 mins or until the chicken is cooked through.  5 mins from the end brush with Bedford Banger BBQ sauce

Remove the chicken & rest for 10 mins & serve
