Easy Low Cal Jalapeno Poppers

I found this Jalapeno holder at Tuesday Morning so we had to try it out.  We make Jalapeno Poppers all the time. 
The ones below use whole jalapeno's scooped out, with cream cheese and shredded cheese mixed together (shredded cheese of your choice), with a piece of allready cooked chicken on the top to hold it all in (I grilled a chicken breasty, cut thin lengthwise and stuck/folded into the jalapenos).  -- Now, the ones these are patterend after were bacon wrapped, but I like mine without.  Cook on grill or in oven at 350 degrees until soft and charred.
Yum.  Great for Cinco De Mayo.
We also do these cut lengthwise in half with just the cream cheese mixture and no chicken with bacon crumbles baked on either the grill or oven, equally as yum, and faster the lengthwise/half way. 

I think these came off a little early.  I like mine a little softer and charred a little more.  Hey we were trying a new gadget.  Works with our without the gadget by the way.  The great thing about the chicken is it holds the cheese in.
Oh, and I have also had these filled with peanut butter/cuts the heat and a fun change.
