Amish rockets are a great grilled meal to make anytime. With chicken, stuffed jalapenos and bacon slices, this one's sure to please!


  • 1/2lb chicken breast strips
  • 3/4 cups Italian dressing, divided
  • 4oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 12 Medium jalapenos
  • 12 thin slices bacon


Step 1
Place chicken breast strips and 1/2 cup Italian dressing in a shallow dish or resealable plastic bag; cover or seal; chill 30 minutes.
Step 2
Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade.
Step 3
Grill chicken, covered with lid, over medium heat (300-350 degrees), 4-5 minutes on each side or until done, basting with remaining 1/4 cup Italian dressing.
Step 4
Let chicken cool slightly and finely chop. Stir together chicken, cream cheese, salt, and pepper.
Step 5
Cut peppers lengthwise down 1 side, leaving other side intact; remove seeds.
Step 6
Spoon 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons chicken mixture into cavity of each pepper.
Step 7
Wrap each pepper with 1 bacon slice, securing with 2 wooden toothpicks. This can all be done the day before serving. (For milder peppers, look for jalapeno peppers with rounded tips).
