I just saw this recipe on Mark's Daily Apple.  I want to try it right away!  It is chicken, wrapped in peppers, wrapped in bacon and grilled.

  • Makes 6-8 poppers
  • 1 large chicken breast
  • 6-8 pickled jalapenos or pepperoncinis
  • 3-4 strips of bacon

Cut chicken breast into 1″ cubes. Marinate the chicken with salt and pepper, jerk seasoning or your favorite seasoning and oil.

Place 1-2 slices of pickled jalapeno on each piece of marinated chicken or slice open a pepperoncini and put a piece of chicken inside.

Wrap 1/3 –1/2 of a piece of bacon around the chicken and secure each popper individually with toothpicks or spear multiple poppers on a skewer.

Over medium heat, grill the poppers until the chicken is cooked through and the bacon is crisp, about 8-10 minutes a side.

And if you’re so inclined….


Homemade Ranch Dressing

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 garlic clove, minced and mashed into a paste
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh herbs (chives, parsley, dill or a blend of all three)
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • salt and pepper to taste
Whisk ingredients together. Taste, then tinker with it until it tastes good to you. Kefir or Greek yogurt can also be used, apple cider vinegar can make it more acidic, and additional spices can be added.
