BBQ Chicken Bites Ingredients:

Method:

*Side note: if you are prepping these they day before, we recommend you wrap the chicken in the bacon, spread out on a cooking sheet and seal tightly with saran wrap then keep in a refrigerator.  When you are ready to cook remove the chicken from the fridge and bring it to room temperature.  Then, while your oven preheats, brush both sides of chicken with half of your BBQ sauce.  When the cooking time is done and before serving, brush the remainder of the BBQ sauce on the chicken.

1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2.  Rinse and pat dry chicken breast.  Cut into 1-inch cubes.  Place in a large bowl and lightly season with salt and pepper.  Pour 1/2 cup bbq sauce over chicken cubes and toss to coat evenly.  Set aside for about 15 minutes (or longer for even more flavor) to marinate.

3.  Soak your toothpicks in the water while the chicken is marinating.

4.  Wrap marinated chicken with a half a piece of bacon. Secure with a toothpick.

5.  Place bacon-wrapped chicken on a baking sheet with a large piece of parchment paper.

    Can I sub turkey bacon instead of pork bacon and if so, would that affect the cooking time?

      Hi Jacque,

      I think turkey bacon would be fine. It’ll definitely cook more quickly so I’d watch it and just wait until it gets crisp.
