Tikka Chicken Jalapeno Poppers
This crowd pleaser and appetizer is a fusion meal combining elements of Indian cooking and Tex-Mex. You get the flavor profile of the tikka chicken with that of the jalapeno popper, which in turn forms a unique taste experience. This recipe yields enough for an appetizer for a backyard BBQ/tailgate gathering or as a main course in itself. In this recipe it calls for the poppers to be baked, but it is perfectly fine to be made on the BBQ pit as well.
If you are sensitive to spice, rinse out jalapenos to remove seeds that have stayed behind.
Chicken masala powder can be found at Indian grocery stores.
The cooling rack on top of the baking tray allows even cooking and keeps poppers off of the bacon grease released during cooking.
