Bacon Jalapeno Pepper Chicken Bites

Recipe by  

"I never really cared for the cream cheese versions of stuffed jalapeno peppers, so I came up with my own. It takes a little prep work, but they are so worth it! Serve with ranch dressing for dipping."

Directions

  1. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Slice stems from jalapeno peppers, cut a long slit into the sides, and remove seeds from peppers.
  3. Sprinkle chicken tenderloin pieces with seasoned salt and garlic powder. Place a piece of chicken into the hollow of each pepper; top with an onion wedge. Wrap pepper completely in bacon and secure with toothpicks. Repeat with remaining peppers, chicken, onion, and bacon.
  4. Grill bacon-wrapped peppers on the preheated grill until chicken tenderloin is no longer pink, the juices run clear, the pepper is tender, and the bacon is crisp, about 15 minutes. Flip peppers occasionally during cooking. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the chicken in a pepper should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

I think if you leave the cream cheese in there it would be fantastic!! Lots of flavor exploding!

Perfect if you add cream cheese between the chicken send the jalapeno and top with cheddar cheese in the last few minutes

These were very, very bland as written. There is no seasoning to flavor these at all. We basted with BBQ sauce the last 5 minutes of cooking and it added a lot of flavor- really the only flavor. If I were to make these again I would- like the last reviewer- add cream cheese. I think I would also add some BBQ sauce to the filling.
