Ingredients

4
chicken breasts, boneless and skinless, cut in thirds (12 pieces)
bacon slices, partially cooked but not crisp
salt and pepper, to taste
garlic powder, to taste
chili powder, to taste
brown sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
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....make sure you have some olive oil in the dish too, like 2 or 3 tablespoons is fine.
2
Bake at 400 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and bacon is nice and brown and crispy. Do not turn them over half way through if baking in the oven, on the grill, yes.

Delicious served with mashed potatoes with some of the gravy from the chicken drizzled on top.

**Also great on the grill! No juices to drizzle on anything, but still delicious! (Picture shows grilled version)

Some comments from others that might be helpfull:


** I have made these before and found that the bacon created too much grease in the bottom of the pan so I placed a cooling rack in my foil lined pan. I placed the wrapped chicken on the cooling rack which allowed the grease to drip to the bottom of the pan. It made for easy clean up. This is definitely a family favorite in our house!

** So good! I used chicken tenders, made it in the oven with garlic Parmesan rosemary potatoes.

** Made this finally and loved it! The only thing I'll be doing next time is adding cayenne because my husband and I love spicy stuff.

** This is the most delicious thing I have ever eaten! You cannot go out any buy at a restaurant anything even comparable to this! I made it for the first time last week and had it again Friday. The whole family just loves this!

** Just made this and it's a winner! I didn't put enough seasoning on though, but next time I'll know to add a little more. Thanks for sharing a great recipe

** I used applewood smoke rub for mine and is was wonderful!
