Ingredients You'll Need

5 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
5 Jalapeno Peppers
20 strips Bacon
4 oz Cream Cheese, Softened
1 cup Colby Jack, Cheddar, or Cheese of Choice
1 cup BBQ Sauce of Choice
Salt & Pepper to taste


* Slice chicken breasts in half WIDTH wise (Each half will make 1 Chicken Bomb)

* Place between two pieces of wax paper and pound to 1/4 inch thickness.

(A rolling pin also does the trick)

* Season each with salt a pepper

* Slice jalapeños in half LENGTH wise and remove seeds, ribs, and the end with the stem

* In a small bowl, mix your softened cream cheese with your grated colby jack

* Fill each jalapeño half with about 1 Tbsp cheese mixture (Sometimes I use more)

* Place 1 jalapeño half at the end of each pounded breast piece. Roll over and together (It doesn't always close the way you think it should. No worries! The bacon will pull it all together)

* Wrap each breast piece with 2 slices of bacon. I do 1 at a time (obviously), and just sort of wrap tightly and tuck the ends of the bacon under the strips. It all comes together in the cooking process (I promise you do not need toothpicks!)

* Preheat your grill to 350 degrees.

* Cook over indirect heat for 20-25 minutes; turning every 4-5 minutes

* Baste chicken with BBQ sauce each time you turn it; Giving it one final basting right before it's done

* Chicken is ready when it reaches an internal temp of 165 degrees (If you don't have a meat thermometer, pierce chicken with a fork, If juices run clear, it's done)

* Bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 30 minutes; basting with BBQ sauce a few times during cooking

*Baste once again when finished, and place under broil setting for a few minutes so bacon can crisp completely

Recipe Tips

*You can do the whole thing on the grill and skip the oven part - not necessary, but from original recipe
