Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breasts with Jalapeno

We are trying to not eat red meat, but I still buy bacon! I love the flavor that it adds to chicken. Don't add salt because the bacon makes this salty enough.

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Breasts With Jalapeno

2 chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise (I cut them to minimize the cooking time.)
four slices bacon
2 fresh jalapenos, cut in half lengthwise
Black pepper

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Cut the stems off of the jalapenos and scoop out the seeds and ribs using a grapefruit spoon. Slice each half lengthwise into 3-4 strips.

Wrap each piece of chicken in a piece of bacon. Slip 3-4 strips of jalapeno under each piece of bacon. Lay in a shallow baking pan. Bake for 30-45 minutes until cooked thoroughly.
