- 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
- 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.

Editor's NoteWear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

Delicious! Question, anyone added cheese? If so what kind.

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.

These can be grilled in a grill basket skipping the need for toothpicks. Great with ranch dressing too!

be careful with the jalepenos they burn your hands but this is also wonderful with shrimp instead of the chicken

I make these a lot! Everyone raves about them. Prep time is well worth the effort. I create an assembly line with family & friends. Fun and delicious, low carb, tooBobbie Naegele, Harrison, OH
