Chicken-Jalapeño-Bacon Bites


Chicken-Jalapeño-Bacon Bites are pretty much what they sound like, which is delicious. These are an easy riff on Quail Bites, and if you have quail, by all means use it. 


½ pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 jalapeño, sliced into 12 rounds
6 strips thin-sliced bacon, each strip cut in half
1 tablespoon brown sugar

Recipe directions: 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil, and place a metal rack over it. Spray a little nonstick spray over the rack.

Wrap a chicken cube and jalapeño slice tightly with a strip of bacon, and secure it with a toothpick. Repeat until you have 12 appetizers.

Put the brown sugar in a bowl, and gently roll each Chicken-Jalapeño-Bacon Bite in it, brushing off any excess sugar and leaving just enough to leave a light dusting of sugar around the bacon. Place the Bites on the prepared rack, and bake for 15 minutes. Turn the Bites, and bake for another 15 minutes. Cool.
