How To Make Crispy Chicken Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

All you need to make these tasty jalapeño poppers is a dozen skins from chicken thighs, a block (8 ounces) of cream cheese, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and 6 large jalapenos. You can, of course, also add a sprinkle of either shredded sharp cheddar cheese or pepper jack cheese to the filling.


For a dipping sauce, you can choose between a buffalo hot sauce (my personal favorite) or a creamy avocado dipping sauce. Both are great options, but in my opinion, the crispy chicken skin gives the jalapeño popper the perfect amount of flavor! It’s so yummy!
