  • 5 small boneless skinless chicken breasts butterflied and pounded thin (about 1/4") Note: You can also substitute chicken tenderloins
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 5 large jalapenos halved lengthwise, seeds removed
  • 20 slices bacon
  • 1 cup your favorite barbecue sauce


  • Note: You want each piece of chicken to be approximately the width of the length of the jalapenos.
  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
  • In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and cheddar.
  • Spoon the cheese mixture into each jalapeno half.
  • Working in batches, place the jalapenos onto the chicken and roll up. Place seam-side down when done so they don't unroll. If you're chicken pieces are too big you might have to trim them a bit.
  • Wrap 2 pieces of bacon around each rolled chicken. Tuck ends under the bacon to seal. The first few might not be pretty, but once you get a hang of it they're fun to make. And they'll taste great no matter what when they are done!
  • Fire up your Big Easy.
  • Add the chicken bombs to the Big Easy basket (and bunk bed basket(s) if using). Do not let them touch. If you have to, cook them in batches.
  • Lower the basket into the Big Easy and cook for 20-30 minutes, basting with the BBQ sauce every 10 minutes. Note: I use a very long basting brush to get down inside the basket and get the sauce on all of the chicken bombs. Be careful to not burn yourself. If you can't reach them, just baste them after they are cooked.
  • Remove and check for doneness (165 F) on all cooking levels.
  • Let rest for 5 minutes then serve.
