How to Make BBQ Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites:

You guys know we are all about simple and delicious and that is what these chicken bites are. Just three ingredients are needed and little to no kitchen skills. Here are the specific instructions:

  1. Wrap each piece of cubed chicken with a small piece of bacon (about 1/3 strip of bacon) and secure with a toothpick.
  2. Place on a baking sheet that is lined with foil and sprayed with cooking spray.
  3. Brush with desired amount of BBQ sauce and bake at 350° for 1 hour (the hardest part of this recipe is waiting for them to finish cooking!)
  4. Remove from the oven and add more BBQ sauce if desired. Serve warm, and enjoy!!

Obviously, the amount of BBQ is completely up to you. I, however, like lots and lots of sauce. If it doesn’t get on my face, there’s not enough sauce, LOL!

You could even change out the bbq sauce for any of these other favorite sauces/seasonings:

  • Buffalo Sauce
  • Honey Mustard
  • Brown Sugar
  • Garlic Powder
  • Chili Powder

      Thanks for pinning and sharing!! They are delicious!! Hope you like them!!


    Do you soke the toothpicks in water or are they fine in the oven without soaking


    How much counts as a serving? Does it make 20-30 individual bites? I’m making them for a baby shower with 100 guests. So I’m trying to figure out how much food to get.

      I would count it as each chicken breast, you could maybe get close to 10 cubes. So, depending on if you want your guests to have a couple?? If you are having more appetizers, I wouldn’t feel like I needed as much. Maybe double or you could triple, if you want plenty. Hope that helps you! Have fun and good luck 🙂
