This “football food” Bacon Candy Chicken Bites Recipe will quickly become a crowd favorite. It’s simple to prep ahead of time and only takes 30-45 minutes to cook on the grill. You want be missing any of the action cooking this recipe!
I start with boneless chunks of chicken (I prefer the thighs but you could use breast), and wrap them in thin sliced bacon secured with a toothpick.
Each piece gets coated with a spicy-brown sugar seasoning which turns into a sticky-sweet coating on the outside. Run the grill at 375 or medium high heat and cook the chicken bites until the bacon is brown and caramelized about 45 minutes.
Serve the bacon candy chicken bites with your favorite sauces. Captain Rodney’s Peach Boucan BBQ Sauce or my Killer Hogs Vinegar Sauce go great but really any type of sauce would work.
Just be sure to make a lot of these Bacon Candy Chicken Bites because they will get devoured!
