De-Lish! So yummy! I've had these saved to try for too long now! And try we did! I made these as part of 'Appy Night' and were not disappointed! I used a nice sized chicken breast and 3 slices of applewood bacon, as it is what I had on hand. The sweet/spicy combo is one we are fond of, so I figured this would be a fave! Thanks for sharing, wittlebit83!

This was really good. I used chicken tenders so I could serve it as a main course. I also added some garlic powder to the rub.

Even though this was meant to be an appetizer, I served this with steamed rice and everyone enjoyed it immensely. So fast and simple to make, this is going to be made often at our house. Thank you so much for posting.
