If you are getting together with friends, one of my favorite appetizers to bring are Jalapeno Poppers. These aren’t your traditional poppers though. They are bacon wrapped and stuffed with a cream cheese and chicken breast filling. You’re going to love them!
Pregame Party Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers
- Jalapeno Peppers
- 1 can chunk chicken breast
- 1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
- 1 12 oz package bacon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
In a medium bowl separate the chicken. Stir in the softened cream cheese until well combined.
Cut the jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise. Remove the stem and seeds. Rinse and dry the pepper halves completely.
Fill each jalapeno half with the chicken and cream cheese filling. You’ll want the filling to be piled high as it will melt down some during the cooking process.
When all of the peppers are stuffed wrap a piece of bacon around each one. I started at the tip and wrapped towards the stem, tucking the end of the bacon in to cover the filling.
Bake the poppers in a preheated oven for 18-20 minutes. Turn the oven to broil and continue baking until the poppers are crisp.
Remove from oven and serve!
