Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts boneless and skinless, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1 tsp pepper or to taste
  • 12 slices bacon thin cut, cut into halves or thirds
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar packed
  • 1 tbsp parsley for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
  • Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil, this will save you from having to scrub your baking sheet. Place a cookie rack on top the baking sheet. I used a cookie rack here. Place the sugar in a shallow plate.
  • Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper.
  • Depending on your bacon how thin or thick it is, cut each slice in either half or 3 pieces. I cut mine into 3. Wrap each piece of chicken with a piece of bacon. There is no need for toothpicks, the bacon will stick to the chicken. Roll the wrapped chicken into the brown sugar and make sure each piece is nicely coated in the brown sugar.
  • Place chicken pieces on the prepared baking sheet and season again with more salt and pepper.
  • Bake for about 45 minutes or until bacon is nice and crisp.
  • Garnish with parsley, so that it looks pretty.

Notes

These bites will last in the fridge for 3-4 days stored in an airtight container or freezer bag. Reheat in the oven at 375F for about 10-15 minutes, or until heated through.
This is also a great appetizer to store in the freezer! You can freeze them uncooked or cooked for 1-3 months. Bake them at 375F for 45 minutes-1 hour if they are raw, or 20-30 minutes if they're pre-cooked.
Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
