Jalapeño popper chicken bombs


These were AMAZING! I am not sure they are healthy but nevertheless.

4 large jalapeños

2 chicken breasts

1/2 pound bacon thin sliced and not maple flavored

1 8 ounce container plain cream cheese

2 green onions sliced

1 teaspoon garlic powder

2 tablespoons bbq sauce. I used Stubbs


Using a jalapeño coring tool or a knife, remove the center of the jalapeño.

Mix together the cream cheese, bbq sauce, garlic and green onions. Stuff each jalapeño.


Butterfly each chicken breast and then pound very thin. Add salt and pepper. Wrap ine jalapeño inside of each prepared chicken breast. Cover each with bacon. Secure in place using toothpicks. Grill at 250-300 for about 30-45 minutes or until the chicken is at 165 degrees.

These are really better for a charcoal grill than a propane unless you like fires. We used our green egg.

I expected them to be pretty spicy. Jalapenos are all different. These were pretty hot to start but the spicy really dissipated when cooked this way. It ended up pretty sweet and I was a little disappointed. We love our poppers!
