COOK bacon in large skillet on medium heat 8 to 10 min. or to desired crispness, turning frequently. Remove bacon from skillet; place on paper towels to drain. Drain grease from skillet.

CUT each chicken breast crosswise in half; sprinkle evenly with chipotle pepper. Heat 1/4 cup of the dressing in same skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 3 min. on each side or until browned on both sides. Meanwhile, place remaining 1/4 cup dressing, red peppers, 1/2 cup of the onions and jalapeno pepper in blender; cover. Blend until smooth.

MOVE chicken pieces to outside edge of skillet. Add red pepper mixture; bring to boil. Coarsely crumble bacon over ingredients in skillet. Add 1/2 cup of the olives and 1/4 cup of the onions; mix well. Cover. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 15 min. or until chicken is cooked through (165ºF). Add asparagus; cover. Cook 5 min. or until asparagus is tender. Serve over rice. Top with remaining 1/4 cup olives and onions.
