Bacon Brown Sugar Chicken Bites are the perfect salty, sticky, sweet and crispy appetizer for the holidays and game day with just five ingredients! Bacon Brown Sugar Chicken Bites

This blog is nothing if not infatuated with all things bacon and brown sugar. The salty, sweet, sticky and crispy combination is a family favorite. Plus you can make this combination with just about anything like Bacon Brown Sugar Smokies and Spicy Sweet Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Bites.

I joke sometimes I’d even eat an old boot if it were wrapped and baked in bacon and brown sugar.

Okay, I wouldn’t really, but just look at these delicious bites!

The easiest and most delicious bacon bites you'll have this holiday season!

We actually have a trick for this recipe which makes the prep even easier. Anytime I know I want to make the dish we buy chicken breasts for dinner (a large pack) and a package of bacon. Then I trim the chicken breasts to the right size by removing the tenders.

Chicken breasts are absolutely gigantic these days, so I trim them to size for individual portions.

MY OTHER RECIPES

We enjoy a family breakfast and with the second half of the package I prepare the little chunks of “leftover” raw chicken.

We do this anytime we’ve used our previous stash of these delicious Bacon Chicken Bites and have chicken breast recipes on the menu. Then once wrapped I freeze them on a sheet tray. When I am ready to serve them I bake them in a hot oven and just sprinkle on a little extra brown sugar. The extra water content from freezing the bacon and chicken can cause them to be a little less coated, so a nice sprinkle half-way through baking solves that problem!

Brown Sugar Bacon Chicken Bites are an AWESOME and quick appetizer!
