What is not to love about these Sweet and Spicy Chicken Bites, wrapped in bacon, and slathered with a sweet and spicy sauce? Perfect for any tailgate party!
1 hour, 35 minutes
3 lbs chicken tenderloin or boneless skinless breasts
2 lbs bacon
2 cups brown sugar
3 TBS chili powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
Take the chicken and cut it into ping pong ball sized cubes. Mix the dry ingredients and put into a bowl to dredge the chicken. Cut the bacon slices into 1/3’s. Roll the chicken piece in the dry mixture. Wrap with the bacon. Secure by stitching the bacon into the chicken with a toothpick. Roll again in the sugar mixture. Grill for about 25 minutes until the bacon is cooked and crisp. If you don’t have access to grill, bake at 350 for 30 – 35 minutes until bacon is crisp. I find that it is too smoky in the house because the sugars tend to smoke. Also, cover with foil while cooking indoors so as not to dirty your oven!
Serve with Ranch dressing or Blue Cheese for dipping sauces.
