Bacon wrapped chicken appetizer (easy hearty appetizer recipe)

Good hearty appetizers are always a good choice to serve up to your favorite holiday crowd. When the spirits are flowin….folks need something easy and hearty to pop in their mouths in between stories:) These spicy sweet chicken bites are perfect for that occasion. They can be made ahead of time…baked up and keep warm (gently…don’t want to dry them out.) We actually have these for dinner a couple nights a month. Appetizers for dinner is always a hit:)

Cut bacon into thirds and working on wax paper makes clean up easy. In a small bowl, mix together brown sugar and chili powder. Cut up chicken into 1 inch pieces (I get about 10 pieces out of one boneless breast) You don’t want them so small that they overcook easy….secure with a toothpick…roll in sugar.

Cover a cookie sheet with foil, place a rack on top and space chicken pieces on the rack.  Bake up and serve up!
