I've been serving these for many years. Guests love dipping the bacon-wrapped chicken tidbits into blue cheese salad dressing or barbeque sauce. —Jacqulyn Fletcher, Liberty Lake, Washington

  • 3/4 pound thick-sliced peppered bacon strips
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Cut bacon strips crosswise into thirds. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain; keep warm.
  2. Wrap a bacon piece around each chicken piece; secure with a toothpick. In a shallow bowl, mix brown sugar and seasonings. Add wrapped chicken, a few pieces at a time, and toss to coat.
  3. Place on 15x10x1-in. baking pans. Bake 10-12 minutes or until bacon is crisp and chicken is no longer pink. Serve with salad dressing and barbecue sauce. Yield: 2 dozen.
