A great finger food for that “bring a dish” party. What could go wrong with bacon, sugar, and spices? Cubes of chicken wrapped in bacon and coated with brown sugar, chili powder, and cumin. Baked until crispy. A skill level of 3/10 (easy). Plus it is easy to double or triple if needed.
Adapted from a Food Network Paula Deen recipe. I looked at it and thought it needed a little cumin, so I did a test cooking the day before the big party and taste tested with my wife. The cumin stayed.
Excellent. Always the first dishes to be finished off at the party. Take copies of the recipe with you.
Recipe Notes on Sweet and Spicy Bacon Wrapped Chicken
I did about a triple recipe so the pictures will reflect that. The recipe and discussion are about a single recipe.
Second, the original recipe called for 1/3 pieces of bacon, but 1/2 pieces were better sticking together, and I like bacon.
Third, I’m a chicken about chicken…. I checked the internal temps of many pieces and all were in the 180 range. No food safety issues.
