Jalapeno Popper Smothered Chicken

I'm always looking for new ways to prepare chicken since we have it almost daily. I've made jalapeno chicken in the crock pot before but this time around I decided on grilling my chicken and since I do love a good smothered chicken, I figure why not smother it in cheddar and cream cheese. If you like foods with a "kick" then you have to give this a try!

Jalapeno Popper Smothered Chicken
Serves 4
Cal 256, Carbs 6.2, Fat 11.7, Protein 31

16 oz. boneless skinless chicken breasts or tenderloins
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/3 cup milk
1 jalapeno, de-seeded and diced
4 oz. reduced fat cream cheese
1/2 cup reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese
1/3 cup crumbled bacon bits

Season chicken with garlic, chili powder, and cumin. Grill over medium high heat for about 5-7 minutes per side or until juices run clear.

Meanwhile, prepare sauce by heating together cream cheese, milk, and, cheddar cheese. Whisk until melted and smooth. Stir in bacon bits and jalapeno.

Pour sauce mixture over chicken. Sprinkle with additional jalapeno if desired. Serve over rice or noodles. Enjoy!
