Sweet Chicken Bacon Wraps

BaconWrappedChicken

Amy brought this yummy dish to our holiday party and everyone wanted the recipe. She said, "I got this recipe off the internet a few years ago from Paula Deen I believe. But, for all of you Penzey's fans, I noticed that Penzey's has a slightly different version. Instead of the chili powder, their recipe calls for their "BBQ 3000" spice."
 
Ingredients:
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 lb. packaged sliced bacon
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp. Penzey's BBQ 3000
 
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
 
Cut chicken breasts into 1-inch cubes. Cut bacon into thirds and then separate into individual slices. Wrap each chicken cube with bacon and secure with a wooden pick. Stir together brown sugar and BBQ spice. Dredge wrapped chicken in mixture. Coat a rack and broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place chicken wrap on rack in broiler pan. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or until bacon is crisp.

 

Pairing Suggestions:

Serve this sassy recipe with southern-inspired creations like The Help by Kathryn Stockett, A Confederancy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole, and Big Stone Gap by Adrian Trigiani.
