These chicken jalapeño poppers are a fun snack to serve at any gameday or gathering, perfect for sharing. Serve them alongside your favorite chips, dips and other gameday favorites.

Tip: The bacon helps to hold the filling inside the chicken as it bakes. To secure the bacon, use a few toothpicks and tuck the ends under the chicken.  If you prefer a spicier chicken, include the jalapeño seeds in the cream cheese mixture.
