Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 2/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 pound bacon strips
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a bowl, whisk the first nine ingredients until blended. Reserve 1-1/2 cups mixture for sauce; cover and refrigerate. Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag. Add remaining pineapple juice mixture; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate 1-2 hours.
  2. Cut bacon strips crosswise in thirds. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain.
  3. Drain chicken, discarding marinade. Wrap a bacon piece around each chicken cube; secure with a toothpick. Place on racks in 15x10x1-in. baking pans. Sprinkle brown sugar over tops.
  4. Bake 25-30 minutes or until bacon is crisp and chicken is no longer pink. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring reserved pineapple juice mixture to a boil; cook 8-10 minutes or until liquid is reduced to 1 cup. Serve nuggets with sauce. Yield: 4 dozen.
