Heat a large pan to medium heat. Season chicken with Cajun seasonings and salt and pepper.
Add oil to pan and heat. Sear the chicken on each side about a minute, then reduce heat to low.
Add tomato sauce, basil and garlic powder. Simmer about 20 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and very tender. Shred with a fork and set aside.
Slice jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise and core them out.
Stuff each with chicken then top with cheese.
Wrap each with a half slice of bacon.
Set oven to broil. Add poppers to a lightly oiled baking sheet and broil in the center of the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until bacon is cooked and peppers soften.
Remove from heat and cool. Splash with hot sauce and serve!
