Jalapeno Popper Chicken Hoagies

Only five more days till the Superbowl!  Not that I care about the game...I care about the food!  We're still completely undecided on the menu this year - it might be a gametime decision.  In preparation for the food fest big game, I've been making some fun possibilities.  This chicken popper hoagie is definitely on the short list (maybe in slider form):

Jalapeno Popper Chicken Hoagie
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin (1/2 inch)
1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 cup milk
oil for frying

2 hoagie buns (12 inch)

4 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup jarred jalapenos (or more to taste)
1 cup Monterrey jack cheese, shredded
2 teaspoons garlic powder, divided
2-3 tablespoons butter, melted
3 slices bacon, cooked & crumbled

1 - Heat oil over medium heat
2 - Dip chicken in milk and coat with bread crumbs
3 - Fry chicken in small batches until golden brown and juice runs clear, about 4-5 minutes on each side

Popper Spread
1 - Melt cream cheese over low heat
2 - Remove from heat and mix in mayonnaise, Monterrey jack cheese and jalapenos

3 - Return to low heat and continue stirring until Monterrey jack cheese melts
4 - Stir in crumbled bacon and remove from heat

1 - Slice buns lengthwise
2 - Spread each half with 1/4 of the melted butter and sprinkle with garlic powder
3 - Place under the broiler (or on the grill) for 3-5 minutes until golden brown

To assemble

1 - Spread each bun half with 1/4 of the popper spread

2 - Add 1/2 of the chicken to the bottom half of each bun

3 - Add the bun lid
