Sweet & Spicy Chicken Bites

This disappears at a pool party or football game REAL quick! For the full recipe and slideshow, see: http://www.tastebook.com/recipes/2866960-Sweet-and-Spicy-Chicken-Bites?full_recipe=true


  • 3 lbs chicken tenderloin or boneless skinless breasts
  • 2 lbs bacon
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 3 TBS chili powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper


  • I prefer the tenderloins. 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.
