My hubby found this in a copy of Southern Living at work. These are super easy and great tasting little appetizers. If you want, you can use reduced-sodium bacon and lite soy sauce to cut back on the sodium. I don't think they need any dipping sauce as the marinade provides a tangy/sour/sweet flavor. Cooking time includes marinade time.

I made these for a New Years Eve party, and they disappeared in no time. I left off the bacon and marinated the chicken in the rest of the ingredients all day. I was planning on wrapping the bacon right before cooking, but got lazy and just left it off - they were delicious as is. The bacon would probably add another layer of deliciousness, and I'll make them again and not be so lazy.

Have made this twice now and could not be easier! I usually take the marinade and simmer it for ten minutes to kill the bacteria then add a splash of fruit juice and puree it for a lovely dip. Gilding the lily a bit but yummy. The boys look forword to UFC night when i always make them!
