Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Bites

These were one of the appetizers I made for the Super Bowl last weekend. Everyone always loves bacon wrapped smokies so I was sure they would be good with chicken.  Do you think we can classify these as healthy since I used chicken this time? I know, nice thought though! Seriously, these were delicious! Plus we know that bacon always makes everything taste better....right?

Besides tasting great, they're a great make ahead appetizer. I always like to place mine in the crock pot and keep on warm, that way I can attend to the children or finish up any other tasks at hand. Make sure you book mark these for your next potluck, everyone is sure to go crazy for them!

Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Bites

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken tenders (you can use a whole chicken breast)
1 lb. bacon
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 tablespoon chili powder


Preheat oven to 350. Line a large baking pan with foil to make clean up much easier. Cut chicken tender pieces or breast into small chunks. Then cut bacon strips into thirds. Wrap bacon around chicken chunks and secure with a toothpick. Assemble on baking pan. Combine brown sugar and chili powder in a small bowl and sprinkle over chicken bites. Bake for 30 minutes or until bacon is done. Immediately transfer to a crock pot to keep warm or a serving platter.


  1. How much in advance can I make these? Can I prepare the night before a party and store in refrigerator uncooked and then cook next day?

    1. Of course, I think that would work just fine!
