  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 small onion, cut into strips
  • 15 jalapeno peppers, halved and seeded
  • 1 pound sliced bacon, halved widthwise
  • Blue cheese salad dressing


  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.
  2. Grill, uncovered, over indirect medium heat for 18-20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and bacon is crisp, turning once. Serve with blue cheese dressing.
Editor's Note
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

    We have been making these for several years, we love them. We sometimes make them just for the 2 of us & enjoy the leftovers. We have also served them when friends come over & they are a big hit.

    We have loved this recipe for years! I have taken to baking them in the oven for 30 minutes at 375 then grilling on medium for about 10 minutes more (to get the grilled flavor) because I was having massive grill flare-ups and burning them. I also use metal skewers instead of toothpicks - 3 or 4 to a skewer makes them easier to turn and handle.
