Chicken Bombs

R2Egg2QR2Egg2Q Posts: 2,122
I hadn't cooked chicken bombs in at least a couple of years. Figured I was way past due so I cooked some today using chicken thighs, bacon, shredded cold smoked pepper jack cheese mixed with cream cheese, and jalapenos.

I didn't want the chicken to be done before the bacon was crisped so I par-cooked the bacon weave first. Since it is a little hard to make much of a weave on thighs with full sized bacon strips I sliced all of the bacon in half before assembling the weave.


Filled the jalapenos with the cheese mix, pounded the chicken flat, seasoned with a little Simply Marvelous Genie's Hooch rub, rolled the chicken around the pepper and wrapped in the bacon weave. Applied a little more rub and onto the Small BGE at 350.


Sauced with a little of The Next Big Thing sauce prior to pulling them off the Egg.


Sliced and served


It was pretty tasty. Thanks for looking!

    I would almost feel guilty for eating those because they are a work of art. My guilt would subside and I would destroy all three of them. 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg. 

  • Those look awesome!

    Wow.  Looks amazing.  Also my 7 yr old daughter's mind was just blown by the concept of a bacon weave.  Nicely done!

    All of it looks great, but the par-cooked weave is most impressive. Have you considered using one as a pot pie top crust?

    I hadn’t considered that but it has appeal!  :)
