{Recipe} Sweet & Spicy Bacon Chicken

IMG_3125
I'm usually a turkey bacon fan but to make this recipe I decided to go all out and have the real stuff and I'm glad I did (just don't tell Sean!). This is delicious! I cooked mine in the oven but I'm thinking that on the grill this would be even better so obviously I can't wait to try it on the grill next.
This would also be a perfect appetizer or an hors d'oeuvre to bring or have at a party.

Ingredients:

4 chicken breasts cut in thirds (12 pieces)

Bacon slices

Salt and pepper to taste

Garlic powder to taste

Chili powder to taste

brown sugar

2-3 tablespoons of olive oil or nonstick cooking spray

Directions:

Cut each breast into 3 pieces, season all the chicken with the spices, then wrap a bacon slice around each piece, roll in brown sugar and place into an oven proof dish. Pour olive oil or cooking spray in the dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and bacon is nice and brown and crispy. The person who I got the recipe from said the chicken is delicious served with mashed potatoes with some of the gravy from the chicken drizzled on top. I just did a simple brown rice with broccoli baked with EVOO, sea salt and pepper.

FYI: I did notice that the bacon created grease in the bottom of my pan so be aware of that if you do not want to be soaking and scrubbing grease out of your pan for several hours. Others suggested using a cooling rack in your pan if you have one or maybe using an aluminum pan that you can throw out after.

But yes, this recipe is so good and incredibly easy to throw together! Enjoy!

I made these one time but did bite-sized pieces. They were hard to cook without drying the chicken out... I think next time, I'll try it your way! :)

That looks delicious. I'll have to try this one, but I'd have to skip the chili powder, though. My husband is not a fan of spicy foods... :(
