These bites are sooooo good! They are the perfect mix of sweet, spicy, smoky and salty.
Perfect to put out for nibbles, with a bowl of ranch to dip in, or some sugar-free bbq sauce.
Or, divide them into portions and add a side salad for a delicious easy dinner.
Or, hide in the kitchen and eat them like moreish popcorn…
2 pounds of chicken breasts, skinless and boneless
1 ½ pounds of bacon – try to get thin bacon, smoked if possible
1 cup of Sukrin Gold
½ teaspoon of ground cumin
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of onion powder
½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
Preheat oven to 350⁰F conventional.
Line large baking trays with foil and sit baking racks over the top (this allows the bites to crisp up evenly all over)
Mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
Cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces, approx. 1-inch pieces
If your bacon is thick, place it between sheets of silicone paper and pound thin with a rolling pin or meat mallet.
Count the bacon and, if required, cut each rasher in half to match the number of bites.
Wrap a slice of bacon around each chicken bite and secure with a toothpick, if required. Otherwise, place the bite seam-side down.
Continue until all bites are wrapped.
Roll each bite in the dry mix until coated and place on the baking trays.
Bake for 35-45 minutes, depending on the size of your bites, until each bite is crisp and golden.
Store in the fridge, in a covered container, for up to 5 days.
