Dinner tonight

I tried two new recipes for dinner tonight, both were absolutely delicious! It's all healthy, but turns out to be high in calories, so I probably won't eat them together again, although they do compliment one another.

Jalapeño popper chicken:
3 chicken breasts
4 oz cream cheese (half a brick)
1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used Mexican blend)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1/4 cup mayonaise or Greek yogurt
2 jalapeños (chopped)
3 slices of bacon
1/2 cup diced onion

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake chicken for 45 minutes and drain juices. While chicken is cooking sauté jalapeños, onion and bacon until bacon is crispy. Place in small mixing bowl. Add shredded cheese, Parmesan, mayo/Greek yogurt and cream cheese. Mix together. Spread over cooked chicken. Sprinkle top with a little Parmesan and put back in oven for 15 minutes. Serve hot.

Parmesan cilantro corn:
3 cups corn
1 Tbsp garlic
1/2 cup Parmesan
Chopped cilantro

Sauté corn and garlic. Slowly sprinkle in cheese and allow to melt. Stir in cilantro and serve.
