Over the years I’ve tried many variations of this type of recipe, but these Sassy Chicken Bacon Bites have gotten the most raves. It seems the key reasons these Sassy Chicken Bacon Bites are so incredible is they’re well seasoned with a mix of herbs and spices, a hint of heat from the chili powder, sweetness of the brown sugar and wrapped in the saltiness of the bacon…… which make for a great appetizer, so don’t skimp on the seasonings.
If you’ve got some bacon lovers (and who isn’t), this is probably enough for one or two people. So you may want to double or triple the recipe.

If you want the bacon crispier, broil the wrapped chicken pieces, 4 inches from the heat, 5 minutes on each side or until the bacon is crisp.
