Sweet & Spicy Bacon Chicken

I have a thing for foods with a hint of sweetness.  I also have a weekness for spicy foods.  And bacon.  So you can bet that this one was a winner in my book.  All my kids liked it too.  My daughter has decided that she does not like bacon {what planet is this child from???} so she peeled hers off.  Thankfully, there were many kind individuals offering to eat it for her so it did not go to waste;)

As you can see below, the original recipe calls for this to be baked in the oven.  The advantage of that method is that you have some delicious flavorful juices to drizzle over the meat and mashed potatoes {if you choose to make them as a side}.  It was over 100 degrees the day I made this so there was NO FREAKING WAY that I was turning on the oven.  They were fabulous on the grill to, AND as I like to tell myself, MUCH healthier;)  
If you want to make this chicken teeming with deliciousness, here is all you will need!




Sweet and Spicy Bacon Chicken
4 chicken breasts cut in thirds (12 pieces)
Bacon slices
salt and pepper to taste
garlic powder
chili powder
brown sugar

Cut each breast into 3 pieces, season all the chicken with the spices, then wrap a bacon slice around each piece, roll in brown sugar and place into an oven proof dish....make sure you have some olive oil in the dish too, like 2 or 3 tablespoons is fine {I skipped this since I grilled them.  I honestly think you could coat your dish with nonstick cooking spray instead to save a few calories}.  

Bake at 400 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and bacon is nice and brown and crispy.  Delicious served with mashed potatoes with some of the gravy from the chicken drizzled on top.

**Also great on the grill!  No juices to drizzle on anything, but still delicious!

  5. My boyfriend loved this tonight! He said "I don't deserve this..it's too good." I substituted paprika for the garlic and chili powder, mainly because I didn't have those ingredients,but it gave it a great smoky and sweet flavor.

  6. Glad you enjoyed it, it is my most requested recipe on the blog :)

  7. I'm really new to cooking. Can you estimate how much seasoning I should use?

    ReplyDelete
  8. I think you would be safe with 1/4 tsp each of salt and pepper and 1/2 tsp. each of garlic powder and chili powder. I would use about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of brown sugar to coat everything nicely. I hope it turns out for you!

    1. That seems like a whole lotta chicken for that amount of spice. You sure you don't mean a tablespoon instead of teaspoon?

    2. How long do you grill it for?

    3. Oh no! I just put it in the oven and I COATED it with spice!

    4. I agree with Aaron...I put more spices on it and also drizzled some Sriracha hot sauce on the top of them before bbq'ing them and they were really good BUT next time I will pound out the breasts a bit just so they are all uniform thickness.

  9. I made these and they were a big hit. As a time saving tip, I used a bag of chicken tenders, instead of cutting the chicken into strips.

  12. How long did you grill them for? Did you turn them? I'm learning to use a gas grill & these easy enough. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  13. So, do you flip them half way through or no need to do that?

    ReplyDelete
  14. I flipped them in the above photo when I did them on the grill. If you are doing them in the oven there shouldn't be a need for it!

    ReplyDelete
  15. On the grill how long you cook them really depends on your proximity to the flame, etc. I guess I just keep an eye on them. When I think they are done I just check one to see if the juices run clear!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I literally just made this! It was absolutely delicious! My husband loved it also! But I might suggest amounts of spices to use. i sprinkled all the chicken but feel i neeed even more chili powder because for me there wasnt enough kick because i didnt know how much to use... but next time i will know, but other than that, i will be making this again for sure!! thanks! :)

  17. Just made these for my family! we loved them, they were perfect! well, except for I overcooked the chicken a little bit. it was in for 36 minutes, and it could have gone for 30 or even 25. but overall they were amazing, thank you!!!

  20. When baked in the oven do you just use a cookie sheet or casserole dish? Also do you cover it while baking?

  21. Found this on pintrest - thanks for the new addition to my recipe box! All three of my big kids liked it!

  22. Made these a few weeks ago and drizzled some Sriracha hot sauce over the top before baking. Turned out awesome!

  23. I came across this on pinterest and it brought me here. I made these today, they were AMAZING!

  24. Anyone know the exact measurements on the spices/brown sugar/etc???

    I'm fine spicing things up myself...but others are asking for measurements....

    Thanks!!!

  25. very similar to the paula deen recipe :) I always did it this way instead of using them as appetizers..yum!

  29. Megan - great blog! I work for an agency and we'd like to talk to you about the virility of this recipe and your blog. This is genuine.. nothing fake! Haha. Would you email me when you get a chance: olinjoseph (at) gmail.com - I'd like to explain in more detail.

    Thanks!

  30. Thank you for sharing I am cooking these now... my mouth has been watering for these the past few days!

  31. This looks really good, something I will definitely have to try. Also if you love hot wings, I mixed ranch dressing and hot sauce dipped my chicken breasts in the mix, wrapped with bacon cooked same in the oven & got rave reviews! Not really any sweet but spicy & bacon in there!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I saw this today and decided to try it, but I am out of chili powder, cayenne and paprika! Any suggestions?

  33. These look amazing ... I love bacon! Going to make these tomorrow night for dinner.

  40. Hands down one of THE BEST things I have ever made or eaten. I added one spice that I will probably never tell but I'm assuming that one spice wouldn't change the recipe that much. AHHHHmazing!!! We put it in Pita bread, no sauce necessary, this is the real deal!

  44. I made these a couple of weeks ago and loved the flavor, but I had no juice in the bottom of dish when they were done. So should i add a little water or butter. I only made a small amount for me and my husband.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I am also curious if baked in the oven do you cover it or keep uncovered? Thanks and look forward to this wonderful dish!

  54. Just tried this tonight for the first time. It came out yummy. However, I didn't know if I should cover it or not. So I covered it with alum foil. The brown sugar boiled and it almost burned but I caught it in time.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Just wondering when you say oven proof dish if we should use a glass casserole type dish or a baking pan. Also, is it to be baked covered or uncovered? Thanks!

  56. This has become one of my favorites!! So easy and super yummy! Made it three times in three weeks!! Can't get enough! I've even had people ask for the recipe!! Delish! :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Cooked this for the first time tonight and my husband loved it. Between him and my three sons there was no leftovers. Super easy to make too!

    ReplyDelete
  58. I've made these twice now and the first time was much better. Def. don't turn them over half way through if baking in the oven. All that does is insure that NONE of the Bacon gets crispy. Had to take all of that delicious Bacon and throw it in the can :(. Throwing away Bacon in this House is a major sin so needless to say I wasn't too popular around here. Def. think this recipe would work best on the grill.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I made this is Japan today ;) It was great but I have a fear of undercooking my chicken.... so needless to say it was dry. My husband said the flavoring was great and next time don't undercook it. My kids only know dry chicken... so all five had seconds!!! YUM!

    1. Use boneless skinless thighs. They are hard to over cook and more flavorful IMO

  61. I made this 2 weeks ago and it was really good but the chili powder did not make it spicy enough for my jalapeño loving hubby, so tonight I will bathe the chicken in sracha chili sauce before wrapping the bacon around it :) thanks for sharing

  62. Tried this on the BBQ; it was delicious. Next time I am going to experiment with a different spice mixture !

  63. YUMMIEST chicken recipe ever! The whole family, including the picky eaters, gobbled it up! :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. We chose the grill and boy did we choose right! These were absolutely wonderful! Whole family loved them. The second time around I added a little red pepper and a little drizzle of molasses before coating with the brown sugar and it added a perfect sweet & spicy blend. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I made this tonight (baked in oven) and it was fantastic! Sauce is to die for...but sticks and burns to the pan so next time I will line with foil. Served with garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli coleslaw. YUM!

    ReplyDelete
  66. This just looks delish, and so easy too! Thanks for the recipe.

  67. Found this on pinterest; made tonight and hubs loved it. I had to use the broiler for a few minutes to get the bacon crispier; grill probably would've been better.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I also found this recipe on Pinterest. It seemed so simple yet so genius that I had to make it for my boyfriend. Valentine's Day was the next opportunity I had to cook for him so this dish served as our "romantic" Valentine's dinner.
    I marinaded it first...bad idea. It came out way too sweet, which I was not found of, but if you're anything like my man you'll love it (he at almost all of it). I shouldn't have messed with the directions (shame on me) so I'm sure it would have been perfect without the marinade! Can't wait to try it again...the right way!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Found recipe on Pinterest. Made it last night, and it was fabulous!
    I added: onion powder, Greek Seasoning, and used garlic salt instead of regular salt. But kept everthing else the same. I questioned how the brown sugar would taste, but that was the "secret" ingredient that made it so yummy! Well, that and the bacon! Great recipe! My whole family loved it!

  70. I cubed the chicken and put on skewers!! my kids loved them ! did not have to bake quite as long as the chicken pieces were smaller. yummy!!

  71. i made this last night and it was sooo good! i used a pack of chicken tenderloins b/c they were on sale! i used a maple infused salt/pepper blend. my 4 year old dipped his in honey (really, i'll do almost anything to get him to eat real food). i have a lot left over so i'm trying to decide what recipe i can use the chicken/bacon for!

    2. I Make a chicken dish similar to this, only fillet the chicken breast, spread on whipped cream cheese and chives, roll it up, then wrap it with a slice of bacon. no other ingredients....Place in 8"x 11" glass casserole dish and put on rack 2 slots down from broiler. Bake at 400 degrees for 40 min. After 40 min., turn oven to Broil, take out the dish, turn over the chicken, and return dish to same place in oven...let bacon crisp for 5 min. (plus or minus). Keep an eye on it as all ovens tend to differ. Then it's done!! A baked potato goes well with this as you can pour the excess sauce over it! Yummy!!

  75. Slightly precook bacon? That is what I usually do when I make stuffed shrimp in my oven.Sounds like wonderful recipe. Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I have made these before and found that the bacon created too much grease in the bottom of the pan so I placed a cooling rack in my foil lined pan. I placed the wrapped chicken on the cooling rack which allowed the grease to drip to the bottom of the pan. It made for easy clean up. This is definitely a family favorite in our house.

  81. 30-40 minutes at 400 degrees will ANNIHILATE 1/3 of a piece of chicken. It would annihilate a whole chicken breast. A piece of chicken that size doesn't need more than 20 minutes, tops. If the bacon won't cook in that time, par cook it slighty first.. but 30 to 40 min will seriously overcook this chicken.

    ReplyDelete
  82. My friend and I made these on the same night. I cooked mine in the oven... they were so moist, and the sauce that was rendered was delicious over the chicken. My friend grilled hers and they turned out very dry.
    I would highly recommend oven over grilling for this recipe.
    Delicious!!!

    1. Precooking the bacon for a couple of minutes would really help:)

  83. This was fantastic! The flavor combination of the bacon, chili and brown sugar were wonderful! I made honey roasted red potatoes to go with them. Absolutely wonderful. For variation I may try with pure maple syrup instead of brown sugar to keep it closer to paleo, but it rocks as it sits.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I just made this for lunch but had a hard time crisping the bacon (I even grilled it). My family likes a more crisp bacon. I wonder if the bacon I used was to fat? Was the bacon you used a thing bacon? From the picture it seems like it was. Aside from that the recipe was amazing. Once I can figure out how to crisp the bacon I will definitely try it again.

    ReplyDelete
  85. The instructions are not complete on this. My husband did it. He's a great cook. Why you'd need any oil is beyond me. With the bacon it produced I've 3/4 cup of grease. I was really disappointed. Maybe we missed something. I might try again on the grill but the over was a disaster. I am feeding the leftovers to my dogs. They love chicken..,

    1. If you see my remarks on the recipe, I recommended using nonstick cooking spray in place of the olive oil. I thought the olive oil in that quantity was unnecessary. I prefer to do these on the grill myself but the recipe in it's original format was to be done in the oven with the olive oil so I included that. I am so sorry it didn't turn out for you!

  86. Made this tonight and my husband ate every bite!! There is a local meat store in our area that makes a chicken jerky that he loves. He said it tasted exactly the same, which is good because that jerky is expensive!!!! Will definitely be keeping this one on the roster!

  89. Don't know if this was said, but if you are baking it, drain the fat after 30 minutes, then cook for an additional 10 minutes at 450 to finish the bacon.

  90. This recipe is delicious!!! Everyone in my family, immediate and extended, loved it. Requesting I make it again. Wouldn't change a thing. I had boneless skinless chicken thighs on hand so I did use that, made a little more of the juices! Perfect! Sinful!

    Thank you for the recipe! Will definitely be making these again. :)

  100. Question: I want to make this tomorrow on the grill... Do you have to precook the bacon before wrapping? I know when I do bacon wrapped scallops, I cook it halfway through before wrapping, but that's because the scallops don't take very long. Do i need to do the same before wrapping the chicken, or is it okay to do it raw, as the chicken takes longer to cook? Thanks in advance!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No you won't need to cook the bacon first. The chicken needs to cook longer then scallops would. I made it on the grill and placed the bacon wrapped chicken a sheet pan (cookie pan) to help with flare ups from all the sugary goodness. Help that helps

  109. I have made this twice since finding it on pinterest. It is one dish my entire family likes. I followed the recipe exactly the first time, and it was a little dry. (it could just be my oven) This time I divided the cooking time up. I started at 350 for 15 minutes, then 375 for 10 and 400 for about 5 minutes. It was juicy and the bacon was just right.

  111. Found you on Pinterest and made these last night. They were amazing. I did mine on the grill and had a hard time getting the bacon cooked on the side of the chicken. Did you grill all sides? The chicken was perfect, tender, and so tasty. Maybe next time I will try it in the oven to see if the bacon gets crispy all the way around. Thanks for the yummy recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  112. Really tasty! I used my indoor grill pan and cooked them for about 8 minutes on each side. My husband loved them! Will definitely make again!

    ReplyDelete
  113. I made this tonight for the second time. The first time I used Pam spray to coat the bottom of the oven proof dish, which resulted in no sauce and the brown sugar being a bit burned on the bottom. It was still a delicious recipe. This time I used the olive oil in the bottom of the dish that made a huge difference resulting in the brown sugary gravy bubbling up the sides of the chicken. I also used Cajun spice in place of chili powder. My son loved it and I will certainly make it time and time again. I told him it tasted so good I could "lick the plate" ha ha but being the adult I am, I resisted !! Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe !

  120. Looks like you have access to Penzey's spices from the picture. They put out a very similar recipe using the same ingredients but they added their BBQ 3000 seasoning to the brown sugar mixture. I have made it as a party appetizer but it never occured to me to make this for dinner until I came across your recipe on pinterest!! Thanks to you we had a yummy yummy dinner tonight!!

  121. I just made these tonight and my boyfriend absolutely loved them!!! I used garlic powder, cavenders and BBQ seasonings and I wrapped the chicken in jalapeño bacon!! Then cooked in a casserole dish in the oven for a good 35 min. AWESOME!!!!! :)

  122. I just made these but instead of doing strips I cut them into cubes and put them in mini muffin tins. They turned out wonderfully and were a big hit as a finger food appetizer.

  123. My family loved your dish so much! I used paprika in lieu of chili powder. When the meat was cooked, I poured the juices into a frying pan, whisked in some flour and chicken broth, trying to make gravy. It was very sweet but delicious on the potatoes as you suggested. My kids and hubby said it was one of the best recipes I've made. Thanks for sharing it!

    ReplyDelete
  124. Love this recipe but your advise "I honestly think you could coat your dish with nonstick cooking spray instead to save a few calories" is kind of strange to me because olive oil is the best oil in my opinion so it would be wonderful to have this flavour on the dish!

    ReplyDelete
  125. So good!! I used tenderloins and cooked on wire rack for 20 min. I also added some cayenne for spice. If your bacon isn't getting crispy turn the broiler on for a few min. at the end but make sure to watch it, they'll burn quickly.

  126. Love the simplicity! And there's NO anti-bacon movement in my house. You have to be pro-bacon at grandma's ♡

  127. Made it tonight. It was yummy! My daughter, like yours, pulled the bacon off. Don't know what's up what that....

  128. Made this for dinner last night! My boyfriend and I loved it! Next time I will add a little more chili powder or crushed chili to make it hotter, just my preference.

  129. I wanted to try some orange chicken I found on Pinterest. Got everything & made it...it was DISGUSTING. I'd remembered I'd bookmarked a few other pages & came across this. Just made it & SO happy I did! I usually just throw some chic breast on the Foreman & then top w/ cheese & bacon, but this is SO much better! There's nothing to it & it's DELICIOUS!

  130. I'm planning on making this tomorrow night on the grill for a date. He likes his food really spicy; I like a little spice so I think this will be great for both of us. I'll probably try the siracha on a couple of them for him. Any suggestions for some kind of sauce to serve on the side since I won't be able to gather the drippings? Also I would like vegetable suggestions.

    1. I made mine with sauteed sugar snap peas. Sauteed green beans are also a good choice.

  136. I loved this and so did my family, two kids included :) I used turkey bacon...it didn't get crisp but it was still really good. I am sure on a wire rack over a cookie sheet would have done the trick...Grilled I imagine it would be amazing. I wasn't sure about brown sugar but it was very good. Something different and delicious!

  137. What do you suggest I put the chicken on while grilling it. I'd rather not set my grill on fire :X

  138. Man Oh Man, I am telling you. I am one happy man after that Bacon Wrapped Chicken,

    BUT

    I did mine on the grill,

    400 degrees, 22 minutes, on an webbed rack with aluminum foil under it to deflect the flames from oil from bacon.

    This was a great dinner.

  142. I love love love this recipe. I used tenders the first time and it turned out great. 2nd time i tried it I cut the breast into nugget size, seasoned the chicken, wrapped in smaller pieces of bacon, used toothpicks to hold together, and cooked in the crock pot, I eyeballed the amount of brown sugar I used. It turned out amazing. HUGE HIT at a friends get together.

  143. Have made these multiple times and are a family favorite. I use a cast iron skillet and cook on the grill or gas stovetop. It cuts down the prep time, no heating up the oven in the summer, and you still get all the yummy juices.

  144. This is a perfect dish for my George Foreman grill, and I´ll make sure to catch all the juices flowing from the grill to make a delish gravy for the mash potatoes

  145. My boyfriend is obsessed with this. He always has chicken and bacon in his fridge and is always dying for me to bring over the brown sugar and spices. Unfortunately, every time we make it, it comes out a little dry for my taste. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  146. Just made some and it was tastilicious...thanks for the idea.

    ReplyDelete
  147. The only seasoning issue I had was the salt. I used sea salt and garlic powder salt. It was a bit much yet a key ingredient. I should have used(like the blog stated) garlic powder and less sea salt. Not bashing the blog just hoping to help someone else who has limited ingredients. :)) Happy cooking ladies and/or men. :)

  148. It looks great. Cant wait to try it out.

  149. I am surprising my husband tonight and making this! It is all the ingredients we love! I came across this on Pinterest and my mouth is already watering! He is going to love it! Thank you for sharing this recipe!

  150. I have made a similar recipe from Paula Deen as an appetizer. You cut the chicken into bite size pieces, coat them in equal parts brown sugar and chili powder and then wrap in a half slice of bacon secured with a toothpick. Everyone always raves about them!

  151. I make this often, my family and friends all love this. Goes great with mashed potatoes!

  156. Its simply very delicious. I love this food. and I think I will prepare this for my family too. One thing I wanna ask to admin. which sauce will be better for this recipe?

    ReplyDelete
  157. Use a meat thermometer to check for doneness of the chicken. When chicken is done I turn broiler on for a few minutes to get the chicken crispy.
