I am absolutely convinced that everything tastes better wrapped in bacon. The crisp flesh of a water chestnut tastes particularly good wrapped in crisp bacon and basted with a delicious spicy Asian sauce. These fun and tasty appetizers can be prepped ahead, stored in the refrigerator and then baked and basted right before your guests arrive.
