Bacon Wrapped Chicken Jalapeno Poppers
Bacon, jalapeno, chicken, and cheese? These "poppable" appetizers are simply the BEST. My mouth is watering just thinking about them!
Servings 12 poppers
- 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast pounded thin and cut into 12 strips
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 6 jalapenos cut in half and de-seeded
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 1/4 cup Mexican blend cheese shredded
- 6 slices bacon cut in half
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and place a wire rack on top of the foil; set aside. (or use a broiling pan)
Place chicken strips in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle garlic powder over chicken and toss to coat.
Spread cream cheese inside jalapeno halves and sprinkle with shredded cheese top cover the tops.
Lay a piece of bacon down on cutting board, and then lay a chicken strip on top of the bacon.
Place cheese-filled jalapeno half on top of chicken and wrap the chicken and bacon around the jalapeno poppers. Secure chicken and bacon with a toothpick.
Place wrapped jalapenos on the wire rack. Bake for 20-30 min, or until chicken is cooked through and bacon is crispy. Serve warm or at room temperature.
