Today I have a quick, easy and super tasty meal for you, a jalapeno popper skillet chicken aka cheesy jalapeno chicken! This chicken dinner is so easy to make! You simply cook the chicken in a skillet and then make a cheesy jalapeno sauce with cream cheese, cheddar cheese and, of course, jalapenos! These flavours are very similar to jalapeno poppers, or jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese and cheddar cheese so I like to call this a jalapeno popper skillet chicken. Since I sometimes like to wrap my cheese stuffed jalapeno poppers with bacon, it makes a perfect addition to this dish! This recipe comes together in about as much time as it takes to cook some rice and steam some veggies which complete the meal and make it perfect for busy work days!
Top with extra cheese!

trav whitmer: Argh! There should not be any ads with audio! Can you take a screen shot so that I can see which ones they are? Send to [email protected] Thanks

This appears to have bacon in it, however I don’t see bacon on the ingredients?
I like to add bacon, but it is an optional ingredient!
