Bacon Jalapeño Chicken

Bacon Jalapeño Chicken

By Traeger Kitchen

To honor National Poultry Day, we’ve created a supercharged rotisserie-style chicken. This bird has savory bacon, butter, and jalapeños stuffed beneath the skin and roasting it on the Traeger will lock in the juices and encrust it with flavor.
