Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Chicken

This was a little sad.  Not horrible.  But it was a little bland.  Both D and I thought so.  It needed a little more salt, and the chicken needed a good rub.  Still I'd have it again.

We were workinng on finding healthy Latino-inspired sides.  We had with Skillet Mexican Zucchini.

Juicy chicken breasts wrapped in crispy bacon and stuffed full, to overflowing, with melted cheese and jalapeno peppers!

4 (6 ounce) chicken breasts, butterflied or pounded thin
salt and pepper to taste (need to add cumin)
2 tablespoons roasted jalapenos (or fresh, or pickled), diced
1/4 cup cream cheese
1/4 cup monterey jack or cheddar cheese, shredded
8 slices bacon

Lay the chicken flat, season the outside with salt and pepper, spread 1/4 of the mixture of the jalapenos and the cheeses on the chicken breasts, roll them up and wrap each in 2 slices of bacon

Grill over indirect medium heat, with the lid down, until the bacon is crispy and the chicken is cooked (160F to 165F), about 20-30 minutes, or bake in a preheated 400F/200C oven on a wire rack on a baking pan until cooked, about 20-30 minutes, turning the oven to broil for the last few minutes to ensure that the bacon is crispy.
