Bacon Wrapped Chicken



4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced into 4 pieces, lengthwise

1 1/2 C brown sugar

1 Tablespoon paprika

1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning

1 pound bacon

1/2 C favorite BBQ sauce

1/4 C water


Preheat oven to 400 degrees…or decrease to 400 AFTER  you take your artisan Couronne with Everything bagel topping out of the oven!


YUM! That’s another post. Anyway, place a rack on a baking sheet, spray with cooking spray. Combine the brown sugar, Cajun seasoning and paprika in a shallow dish. Roll chicken strips in brown sugar mixture, shake off excess and wrap with one to two strips of bacon, depending on strip size. Set on rack with loose bacon ends underneath chicken strip.


***TRICK*** I found instead of securing bacon with toothpicks in the center where the two strips meet, that If I brush the ends with a glaze, they stick together!!! Here’s where your BBQ sauce and water come in…combine the two into a thin glaze, brush the tops of your bacon wrapped chicken with this before placing in the oven. It’s a delicious SEALANT that helps keep the bacon in place!! Bake at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes. I like to turn the broiler on for about 3 mins after to make the bacon extra crispy! ENJOY!
