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….
