Sweet Chicken Bacon Wraps

First & formost this weekend we celebrate Memorial Day and honor those who gave their lives so that we may be free. Memorial Day also kicks off BBQ & Grilling Season and here's a yummy recipe from Paula Deen! Even though this is for the oven, it adapts well for the grill. Prep Time:25 min Cook Time:30 min Level:Easy Serves:12 to 15 appetizer servings Ingredients • 1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless, chicken breasts (about 4 breasts) • 1 (1-pound) package sliced bacon • 2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar • 2 tablespoons chili powder Directions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut chicken breasts into 1-inch cubes. Cut each bacon slice into thirds. Wrap each chicken cube with bacon and secure with a wooden pick. Stir together brown sugar and chili powder. Dredge wrapped chicken in mixture. Coat a rack and broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place chicken wrap on rack in broiler pan. Bake 350 for 30 to 35 minutes or until bacon is crisp. If you want to ensure that your bacon is crisp, cook it partially in th microwave before wrapping
