Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, grated cheddar cheese and minced green onion. Stir until well combined.
Clean and de-seed your jalapenos. You'll want half a jalapeno for most taste buds. However, if you like your food extra spicy, you can use 4 whole jalapenos.
Stuff the jalapeno halves with the cheese, cream cheese and green onion combination.
Slice through the side of the chicken breast to create a pocket that you can stuff the filled jalapeno into.
Once you've sliced the chicken breasts, stuff the jalapenos into the chicken breasts then press them closed.
One at a time, wrap each chicken breast tightly with the bacon. Use toothpicks to secure the bacon. Transfer the bacon wrapped chicken breasts to a large baking pan, then place in the oven.
Cook for 35-45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through (bake time will depend on the size of the chicken breasts). Once the chicken is cooked, transfer the pan to the broiler and broil on high for about 2 minutes to crisp up the bacon.
Serve your Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Popper Stuffed Chicken Breasts with a side of salad and you have a delicious and nutritious meal!
