Chicken Bacon Jeffs




Y'all! I am so so so so so excited to have my husband's signature recipe on the blog today! (Did I say signature? Maybe I meant one and only?!)


Several years ago - prior to us even having kids - we went to a restaurant for dinner and had some sort of bacon-wrapped chicken dumpling thing and Jeff became obsessed with creating his own version.


Soon, it became affectionately known among our friends as "Chicken Bacon Jeffs". (Don't ask...)


I hope you love them as much as we do.


(And if you want to laugh, check out my instagram stories for some outtakes of the making of Chicken Bacon Jeffs!)


INGREDIENTS :


1 package of chicken tenders

1 jar diced jalapenos

1 package bacon

1 block cream cheese, (room temp makes it easier)

1 jar barbecue sauce

Toothpicks, soaked in water


DIRECTIONS :


Between two pieces of plastic wrap, flatten chicken breasts with a mallet or rolling pin just a bit.


On each piece of chicken, layer cream cheese and jalapenos. (I also like to sprinkle a bit of chili powder, but this is Jeff's recipe and I'm not trying to hijack that, but I just wanted to throw that out there.)


Roll up each chicken tender and carefully wrap bacon around it. Secure with toothpicks.


Preheat grill or grill pan over medium-high heat.


Arrange on a rimmed baking sheet and baste with BBQ sauce.


Grill for 8-10 minutes, turning occasionally until cooked through.
