Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, diced jalapenos, salt and garlic powder. Use immediately or refrigerate for a while to allow the flavors to combine.
  2. Spread some cream cheese-jalapeno mixture down the center of each piece of chicken.
  3. Roll up tightly and secure with a toothpick. Season each roll with salt and pepper to taste.
