I soak mine in buttermilk overnight in the fridge, drain, salt and pepper, wrap in bacon, grill. (please do not cook the heck out of them). 145 degree internal temperature.

I cook mine 1 of 2 ways
1. Marinade overnight in barbeque sauce and grill
2. Place jalapeno pepper slice on each side of breast and wrap with bacon. Hold this together with toothpic, then grill

Soak in buttermilk overnight. Then drain, dip in milk, dredge in a flour/Johnnys seasoning mix, repeat, then fry them. Damn are they good.
