Equipment

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 7 slices bacon
  • 5 teaspoons honey mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and place an oven-safe cooling rack on top. This helps drain and catch grease from your bites as they bake. Set aside.
  • Slice chicken into bite size cubes, about 1" in size. Slice bacon into thirds.
  • Add honey mustard down the middle of each bacon slice, then lay a chicken cube at one end of the bacon. Lightly season chicken with pepper, then wrap your chicken in the bacon, securing with a toothpick. Place bites onto prepared baking sheet with cooling rack.
  • Bake for about 17-18 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through (your bacon will not look crispy yet). I suggest testing with a meat thermometer, or finding your largest chicken bite and slicing open to ensure they are cooked through.
  • Turn off the oven and turn on the broiler. Broil for 1-2 minutes, or until tops of bites are crispy and lightly browned.
  • Remove from oven and carefully turn each bite over. Return to the oven and broil for another 1-2 minutes, or until second side is lightly browned and crispy.
  • Remove from oven and serve warm. Optionally, serve with more honey mustard as a dipping sauce.

Notes

  • Honey mustard can be substituted with yellow or dijon mustard, or omitted entirely.
  • Broiling steps are based on how crunchy and cooked your bacon looks. If your bacon is already cooked through and crunchy, broiling step can be omitted. 
  • If you're concerned about toothpicks burning in the oven, soak them in water for 20 minutes before assembling your bites. The added moisture helps prevent the wood from burning in the oven.
