In her kitchen in Ponca City, Oklahoma, LaDonna Reed spreads chicken breasts with a creamy filling, rolls them up, wraps them in bacon and bakes them. For a spicier version, she suggests that you try using sliced jalapeno peppers instead of green chilies.

"When I am in a hurry I use real bacon bits and sprinkle them in the middle and on top. LOTS of green chilies on top too! Messy but so good."

"We don't keep chilies in our home so I substituted green and red bell peppers and it's amazing. If I'm feeling adventurous I'll mix in green onions. I like that you can hide vegetables in it."

"Used 1 T. chopped jalapenos instead of green chilies for that extra "kick" we like. Very good!"

"Best chicken recipe I have ever made!! I suggest breading the chicken. It makes it extra wonderful. It's mine and my husband's fallback dinner when we don't know what else to make. Amazing!"

"This was delicious! I used jalapenos because I didn't have chlies, but I'll definitely be experimenting with more filling again."
