Jalapeno Popper Chicken Bowl

If you are a Jalapeno fan, you will love this recipe. It’s great for family dinners (if the kids will eat this dish, you will probably should remove the seeds and stems of the jalapenos or use green bell peppers). The chicken was cooked in a slow cooker the day before and the squash was baked early in the morning, so when I prepared the dinner took me just few minutes to put everything together. It’s so creamy because the cream cheese and the bacon give that crunchy and rich flavor. One more thing that I love about this dish is that is in servings … one cup per person will be perfect size. Hope that you like it! because is one of our favorites recipes right now.
