Bacon Wrapped Chicken Appetizer

Sue here again today. 2 posts in a row for me is pretty good. If we`re talking about bacon I could probably do a bazillion posts in a row.
You might say I`m fond of bacon.
My husband understands that my love affair with bacon doesn`t mean I love him any less. 
You know..... most days... (Bacon doesn`t leave it`s dirty clothes all over the floor.... just sayin`)
This is probably one of the simplest, tastiest, easiest, quickest appetizer recipes you will ever make. For how simple it is (there is only 4 ingredients!) it truly is magical. 

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Appetizer

2 Tbsp chili powder
pinch of salt & pepper 
2/3 cup brown sugar
3 chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 lb bacon, slices cut in half lengthwise

Preheat oven to 350. Line a cookie tray with tinfoil, set aside.
In a mixing bowl stir together the chili powder, salt & pepper, and brown sugar until well combined.
Take a chicken piece and wrap it with 1/2 of a slice of bacon. Repeat with all the chicken pieces and bacon.
Roll each piece of bacon wrapped chicken in the chili and sugar mixture. Place on cookie sheet. Sprinkle any remaining chili/sugar mixture over the chicken on the sheet.

Bake at 350 until bacon and chicken are cooked - about 30 - 40 minutes. 
Serve hot.

FYI - this also works FANTASTIC if you use chunks of sweet potato instead of chicken.
You make it exactly the same way as with the chicken, cooking time and all!

Oh. My. Heck.
So good.
My husband LOVES these. Anytime he sees that I've bought chicken and bacon he asks me if I'm making them. 
P.S. - teenagers love these too. 
Oh, yeah, and wives and mothers love them too. 
Just sayin'
