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!
- 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.
