Got this recipe online originally, but I adapted it so I could cook them on the barbecue grill, medium heat with all the charcoal pushed to the sides and the poppers in the middle for indirect heat for about 18 mins or so. Bacon came out really crispy, chicken was well done.

You can use the side of your meat tenderizer mallet to flatten out the strips of chicken between two layers of plastic wrap. Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce come in a little can in the Mexican food section of your grocery store or, if you're from around here, at any local Hispanic grocery and most carnecerias. I put a picture of what I used below.

Ingredients
  • 1 – 1 1/2 pound package of boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 6 – 8 jalapenos
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 6 – 8 slices bacon, sliced in half crosswise
  • Marinade:
  • 3-4 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • the juice of two limes
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 3 tbsp Honey
  • 3/4 cup Vegetable oil
Instructions
  1. Put all marinade ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
  2. Place a chicken breast between two heavy-duty sheets of plastic wrap and pound to 1/8 inch thick. Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag with marinade. Refrigerate for at least thirty minutes (I give it a couple of hours).
  3. Meanwhile, roast jalapenos on the grill for about 6-9 minutes. When cool enough to handle, slice in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Combine cream cheese and cilantro; fill jalapeno halves with cream cheese mixture.
  4. Slice chicken crosswise into pieces the same size as your jalapenos or slightly smaller. Wrap jalapenos with chicken, seam side down. Wrap bacon around chicken, seam side on top, then spear with a toothpick to hold it all together.
  5. Grill on indirect heat (with grill lid closed) until chicken is cooked through. Remove toothpicks so you don't hurt yourself.

Note: Reserve a little of the marinade (or make some extra) for a spicy-sweet dipping sauce. It's truly the star of this dish.

    Essi, this is the calendar I'm going to get, but I also need to pay for another year's updates from Xenforo. There's one for $5 less, but it's nowhere near as good.
  • essi2 essi2:
    Am I reading this right? It is 40 USD for the addon and then another 50 USD to remove the branding?
  • Rootimus Rootimus:
    That's correct, but the branding is just a line in the site footer - I never bother paying for that.
  • essi2 essi2:
    40 USD is still a fair chunk
  • essi2 essi2:
    @Xrixi Do you have Divinity:OS2 yet? :p
  • Rootimus Rootimus:
    Yeah, it's a lot of money - that's why I haven't loaded the site up with tons of extra features. Probably a good thing that I've got something restraining me. :p
  • essi2 essi2:
    lol, Group finder broke again, seems they learned nothing last year
  • Rootimus Rootimus:
    I'm shocked - shocked, I tell you! - that group finder is broken.
  • Rootimus Rootimus:
    Anyone would think there's an upcoming event that relies on it, or something.
  • Rootimus Rootimus:
    @Gnatz - TYVM for the donation!
  • Xrixi Xrixi:
    @Essi, no I have not. I am playing part 1 with a friend at the moment. We are going for both lone wolf and on tactical... :happy:
  • essi2 essi2:
    Okay, let me know when you get OS2 :p
  • Xrixi Xrixi:
    why? you wanna play it together?
  • Rootimus Rootimus:
    It's a trap!
  • essi2 essi2:
    I don't remember where you mentioned it, but playing OS2 together was your idea xD
  • Rootimus Rootimus:
    That was weird - your images went into the moderation queue even though everyone has permissions to upload images without approval.

    I'm special!

    No comment. :smile:

    Group finder is fixed, I believe. Got into a random normal as DPS today in about 7 minutes.
  • essi2 essi2:
    Except the part where is still has the 'Someone declined' bug and now also frequently just gives you a 'Unable to queue at this time' error -_-
  • Gnatz Gnatz:
    Didn't run into that yet, thank goodness.
  • Rootimus Rootimus:
    I spent 10 mins in a load screen after joining a group and gave up.
  • Rootimus Rootimus:
    A wild calendar appears.
  • Rootimus Rootimus:
    Big thanks to @Gnatz and @Krystalanna, whose donations paid for the calendar mod. <3
