FF: Jalapeno Popper Chicken

Here it is! The first recipe that earned all stars from all four boys!

It's a slight cheat because this is actually a family favorite...but after Ben's submarine rating, again, last week, I asked him what I had to do to earn a full 10. He told me I had to make this.

So, here it is!

You'll look like you spent hours in the kitchen, but you and I will both know the truth.

Jalepeno Popper Chicken

We've been making this Cassie Craves recipe for a few years, now. Here are my tips. Make the bacon beforehand to speed up the process. I, usually, always have bacon cut up and on hand because we have salad with dinner a lot and who doesn't want bacon on their salad!?!

I mix Italian seasoned bread crumbs and Panko together for the crust and just pan fry the chicken over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side and then pop the chicken in a 350 oven for about 20 minutes.

As long as you dump the seeds, the jalapeno is not too spicy. All the kids ate it inside the chicken, even the baby, without complaint.

This week, we paired our chicken with orange slices, salad, and biscuits.

You will NOT be disappointed!


  1. Ian going to try this. My little guy (Tyler) has a horrible disorder called "EOE" and I am determined to get everyone's diet in check. This means more healthy and home made foods. This is going on my list for next week.

  2. I thought this was wonderful, but neither of my kids liked it. I think it was the texture of the filling. Once I took the filling out, and ate it myself, they ate the chicken. After dinner I realized that I had single-handedly eaten have a package of cream cheese. No wonder my stomach hurt! Thank you for all of the wonderful recipes. Keep 'em comin'. :)
