We LOVE Jalapeno Poppers here at Real Housemoms. Maybe it’s being in Arizona but we just can’t get enough of them. The flavor combination of jalapeno and bacon is just so darn good!
Stacey first introduced me to Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers the first time we were over to her house and I knew we were going to be great friends. I’ve made them for all of my family and friends and they LOVE them! I wanted to come up with a new way to have them so I thought why not add chicken? It was fantastic and they went fast.
- 1 lb. chicken breast pounded thin and cut into strips
- 1 t garlic powder
- 6 jalapenos cut in half and de-seeded
- 6 slices of bacon cut in half
- 4 oz. of cream cheese
- 1/4 c shredded Mexican blend cheese
- preheat oven to 400 degrees
- sprinkle garlic powder over chicken strips and toss to coat
- spread cream cheese inside of jalapeno and sprinkle with shredded cheese
- lay a piece of bacon down on cutting board then lay chicken strip on top of bacon
- place cheese filled jalapeno half on top of chicken and wrap the chicken and bacon around, secure with a toothpick
- line a baking sheet with foil and place a rack on top
- place wrapped jalapenos on rack and place in oven
