TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Grill: 20 min. YIELD:15 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts

Directions

  • 1. Cut chicken into 2-in. x 1-1/2-in. strips. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, seasoned salt and paprika; add chicken and shake to coat. Place a chicken and onion strip in each jalapeno half. Wrap each with a piece of bacon and secure with toothpicks.
