Chicken Bombs on the Mini

R2Egg2QR2Egg2Q Posts: 1,652
After seeing some great posts on Chicken Bombs it was time to give them a try. I started with the recipe from that Dishing With Leslie blog which included boneless, skinless, chicken breasts which I normally avoid as I prefer thighs.

The Mrs & I can't handle very spicy foods so we opted for green chilies but then grated some hot pepper cheese (made with jalapenos) to mix with the cream cheese. We also wrapped with just one piece of bacon per bomb:

Got the Mini set up for an indirect cook using just a drip pan and stabilized around 350 dome and cooked following the recipe. Sauced with Bart 's Blazin Q sauce:

They took about 45 mins to get into the 160s IT:

Pulled & sliced:

They came out tasty but I still find myself thinking they'd be even better using thighs. :)

Thanks for looking!

    @R2Egg2Q - you are correct about using boneless and skinless chicken thighs. Chicken breast meat is for women thinking they will not get fat and never get heart disease. It is also much drier and costs twice a much.

  • Looks awesome! How did you get the breasts to stay folded or wrapped?

    I just overlapped the bacon slightly each time around and tucked the ends under the breast where possible. I didn't need toothpicks to secure it but would use them if it didn't cooperate.
