Smoked Bacon Wrapped Chicken Thighs

Traeger Smoked Bacon Wrapped Chicken Thighs

My Traeger Smoker has been working overtime this summer. These Smoked Bacon Wrapped Cheese Stuffed Chicken Thighs are going to be on your grill the rest of the year!!!! Boneless chicken thighs are so juicy and tender - then add a little smokiness and you're golden!
