- You do not need toothpicks, because it all comes together in the cooking process.
- FOR GRILL VERSION :
- Preheat grill to 350 degree and place chicken bombs on the grill to cook over indirect for approximately 25-30 minutes.
- Turn chicken bombs on the grill every 5 minutes to ensure it is cooking evenly, and baste with barbecue sauce each time you turn it.
- Just before the chicken bombs are done, baste one last time.
- Be sure chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.
- If you have a meat thermometer, chicken is ready when it reaches an internal temp of 165 F, otherwise pierce chicken bombs with a fork.
- When they are done, remove from the grill, let them rest 5 minutes or so and serve and get ready to hear some accolades because these babies are very very tasty ... and Happy Grillin’
- FOR OVEN VERSION :
- Preheat oven to 400 degree and place chicken bombs on a foil lined baking sheet.
- Bake for 20 minutes, turning once to help cook the bacon.
- *I suggest to change baking sheets/pans in order to loose some of the bacon fat.
- Reduce heat to 375 degree, line another baking sheet or pan, and place chicken bombs in a new one.
- Brush each chicken bomb with barbecue sauce, then use a spatula to flip them over to the other side, and brush the tops with more sauce and return to the oven for 5-6 minutes.
- Remove from oven, brush on more sauce, and place under broil setting for a few minutes so bacon can crisp completely, and the chicken is totally cooked through.
- Remove from the oven and let sit for at least 10 minutes before serving.
- Slice into ½-1 inch slices and ENJOY!
