HOW DO YOU COOK BACON WRAPPED CHICKEN SKEWERS?

This recipe takes very little time to prepare with just a few ingredients, including: boneless skinless chicken breasts, seasonings, and bacon.

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and position a wire rack on top of the baking sheet. Spray wire rack with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Next, cut up the chicken breasts into about 1-1/2 inch pieces.
  • Drizzle chicken with a bit of olive oil.
  • Season chicken pieces with your favorite seasonings, or you can use my blend; I like to use salt, pepper, sweet paprika, cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, and dried basil.
  • Take bacon slices and cut them in half.
  • Wrap each bacon half around a piece of chicken, then thread onto skewers. About 5 to 6 pieces per skewer. You want to pack them close together on the skewer so that the bacon slices stay intact.

  • Arrange skewers on top of previously prepared baking rack.
  • Cook for 25 to 30 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.

  • Defrost overnight in the fridge.
  • Remove from fridge and let stand 15 minutes on the counter.
