Hasselback Jalapeño Popper Chicken


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts.
  • 4 slices precooked hormel black label bacon ( if you don’t use the precooked bacon you’ll want to cook the bacon before adding into the food processor)
  • 3 oz lite cream cheese.
  • 1 tsp garlic powder.
  • 1 tbsp diced canned jalapeños
  • 1/2 cup Trader Joe’s lite cheese blend or any lite cheese blend


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all the ingredients (except for the chicken breasts) into a food processor. Blend well.
  3. Using a knife, cut 4-5 horizontal slices (halfway down) along the middle of each chicken breast. Add a tsp of cheese mixture in the middle of each cut.
  4. Place the chicken breasts in a baking pan and cook in a preheated oven for about 40 minutes.
