Tonight, Vegas Week continues with the first 10 male semifinalists, so for tonight's viewing, Sarah is naturally inspired by Sin City. "I love Las Vegas, and all I could think of was something sinfully delicious, with crispy bacon and sweet brown sugar glazed on top," Sarah explains.
So, bacon-wrapped chicken it is!
Spicy Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Bites
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1 tsp cracked black pepper
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 large jalapeño, seeded, thinly sliced
- 8 pieces center-cut bacon, cut in thirds
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350.
Cut the chicken into bite-size pieces and liberally season with the salt, pepper, and chili powder. Toss until evenly coated with the seasoning.
Press a sliver of jalapeño against each piece of chicken and tightly wrap with a piece of bacon. Overlap the ends to seal.
Dredge each piece of chicken in the brown sugar and place on a foil-lined baking sheet, seem side down.
Bake for 30-35 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and the bacon is nice and crisp.
