Chicken, Bacon, Cream Cheese, Jalapeños - Need I say more?


I was watching some cooking show, and saw a stuffed chicken creation. I didn't want to pound out the chicken to wrap the ingredients, so I decided I could just take the recipe, and make a sandwich with the chicken. I just needed to figure out the ingredients I would stuff into the chicken. Since I am gluten and dairy intolerant, jalapeños poppers are something I have not yet been able to enjoy out of the house.

That's what I would put into my chicken!

And why not wrap it in bacon?!

 Chicken stuffed with cream cheese & jalapeños, then wrapped in bacon. It was amazing! Original Recipe Here (

I adjusted the recipe for one serving, thankfully they have a little calculator on the BigOven sight to do the math for you, since I usually cook for myself.  

I fully intended on making two portions out of this, since it is a whopping 710 calories for one serving, but that did not happen.  

After one bite, I knew I was eating the whole thing!

What is your chili topping?!

The #neverendingwinter continues here in Minnesota. This means warm meals, crockpot produced, will fill my belly for a bit longer.This includes chili. Some people top their bowl of chili with cheese, sour cream, and/or chips. Me? I top mine with green beans. SO GOOD! 20140303-173542.jpg What do you too your chili with? Have you mixed anything into staple meals?

Dinner 1/26/14

I have been bummed about the frigid temperatures that have become frequent here in Minnesota as of late. So the fridge is quiet empty. And my weekly run date with myself has been temporarily postponed until the winds stop being so strong (they're gusting well above 40 MPH). I'm looking at Wednesday for my run.


Lame. I am bummed in many levels. I didn't want a tuna melt, because bread was sounding boring but couldn't figure out what to do...

Dinner tonight was tuna quesadillas with tomato slices:

I blended:

  • 1 large can of tuna
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Teaspoon cilantro
  • 3 Tablespoons Miracle Whip


  1. Pan fried corn tortillas and added a 1/4 slice of sharp cheddar cheese then 1/3 of the tuna spread.
  2. Let it melt a few minutes, topped with another 1/4 slice sharp cheddar and another corn tortilla, and flipped to get the new tortilla.
  3. Once done swirl/top a little yellow mustard and sprinkled black pepper on top.

I made 2 quesadillas, since use the small tortillas and needed to use the remaining slice of cheese.
