If you are looking for an easy appetizer recipe, try our Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers. These are perfect for the Big Game or to bring to a potluck.

If you are getting together with friends, one of my favorite appetizers to bring are these delicious Jalapeno Poppers.  These aren’t your traditional poppers though.  They are bacon wrapped and stuffed with a cream cheese and chicken breast filling.  They are so easy. You’re going to love them and so will the party guests.

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers


  • Jalapeno Peppers
  • 1 can chunk chicken breast
  • 1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 12 oz package bacon

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Peppers


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium bowl separate the chicken.  Stir in the softened cream cheese until well combined.

Chicken Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers

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.

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

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.

Bacon Jalapeno Poppers

Bake the poppers in a preheated oven for 18-20 minutes.  Turn the oven to broil and continue baking until the poppers are crisp.

You had me at bacon.

Seriously, those sound AWESOME.

They really are! I love traditional poppers to but the chicken adds a great filling. Also, being baked instead of fried, they aren’t as bad for you. Because bacon is never bad for you, right?


Those look amazing! Anything with bacon is a winner.


This looks amazing! I love that this has two of my favorite ingredients, bacon, and spicy jalapenos. I will have to make this for my new years day guests.

Tiffany (A Mom's Take)

Those look really good. We also make these, but we use shrimp sometimes when we can. Now I want to have some for dinner tonight.

Jalapeno poppers were so good already. This recipe kicks them up a notch!


Wow! These sound really delicious. Jalapeño poppers with chicken? I have never had those before, but can’t wait to try.


Wow, those look really tasty for gameday. What a creative way to combine peppers, chicken and bacon.


I love the addition of chicken to the filling! They are like a mini-meal that way!
