Blue Ribbon Recipe

This bacon-wrapped chicken breast is an impressive and delicious dinner. Once baked, the chicken breast is moist and filled with a delicious smoky flavor. There is a hint of spice from the pepper jack cheese and jalapeno pepper. If you like your bacon on the crispier side as we do, partially cook the bacon before wrapping it on the chicken. That gives the bacon a little crunch to contrast with the juicy chicken.

    Rinse chicken. Lay bacon out 2 slices together. Top with a slice of cheese and then the pickled jalapeno pepper.
  • Bacon wrapped around chicken breast and secured.
    Place chicken on top. Fold the bacon over and secure it with toothpicks.
  • Chicken placed in a baking dish bacon seam side down.
    Place chicken, seam side down, in an oven-proof dish. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Chicken breasts baked until cooked and juices run clear.
    Bake at 350 for about 30 min (or until chicken breast is cooked and juices run clear).
