  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl using a rubber spatula, stir the cream cheese until smooth, then fold in the heavy cream, shredded chicken, Monterey Jack cheese, cheddar cheese, onion powder, black pepper, and Frank's® RedHot® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce until fully incorporated.
  3. Cut the jalapeños in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Arrange the jalapeño halves, cut-side up, on the prepared baking sheet and divide the chicken mixture evenly among the halves. Sprinkle the bacon on top.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together the panko bread crumbs and olive oil until the panko is evenly coated. Sprinkle over the jalapeños.
  5. Bake the jalapeño poppers for 20–25 minutes, until the tops are golden brown and crispy.
  6. Remove from the oven and sprinkle the crumbled blue cheese on top. Drizzle with more Frank's® RedHot® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce. Serve immediately with blue cheese or creamy ranch dip.
  7. Enjoy!
