serves four

4 chicken breasts
12 slices of bacon

3 plum tomatoes, peeled and seeds removed, chopped
2 green onions, sliced
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic
zest and juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro, minced

Preheat your oven to 400° F. Combine all the ingredients for the salsa in a bowl and mix well. Cut the chicken breasts in half horizontally, so that you can open them up like a book. Flatten them out with a rolling pin. Fill each chicken breast with an equal amount of the salsa mixture and close them up. Roll the bacon strips around the chicken, and pin them in place with the toothpicks. Once the chicken is wrapped, place it in a baking pan and bake 30 to 35 min or until a meat thermometer reads 170 F. Then broil 5 to 6 min or until the bacon is nicely crisp. Serve with salsa.
