Bacon Jalapeños Chicken

Sweet and spicy, bacon-wrapped chicken thighs are stuffed with jalapeño peppers and grilled to perfection for a tasty dinner.

You can prepare the bacon-wrapped chicken jalapeños ahead of time, and then it’s ready to grill whether you are in your backyard or camping.

For a less spicy dish, carefully remove the seeds from the peppers, before stuffing the chicken. Use your favorite store-bought barbecue rub or make your own.
