I love to entertain and am a firm believer that you don’t have to wear yourself out before the party to throw a great event. Simple, but delicious appetizers are my favorite party foods and these BBQ Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites are a perfect example.

BBQ BACON WRAPPED CHICKEN BITES WILL WOW YOUR GUESTS

I love bringing a platter of appetizers to a party and knowing I won’t be taking any leftovers home. This recipe for BBQ Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites is exactly that kind of appetizer.

People seem to love finger foods that have a toothpick in them. I admit that a toothpick makes these delicious bites very easy to eat and you have messy fingers.

The other nice thing about these BBQ Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites is they are great YEAR ROUND. I like having an appetizer recipe on hand that I can make anytime for any event.

HOW TO MAKE BBQ BACON WRAPPED CHICKEN BITES

I like how this recipe uses basic ingredients you can find at the store. There is also a good chance I will have all the ingredients on hand. Whenever I can skip an extra trip to the store I take advantage of it.

BBQ Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites are easy to make and my kids can even help me in the kitchen with the preparation.

STEP ONE: PREPARE THE PAN

Go ahead and preheat the oven to 400° F. Now take a baking sheet and line it with aluminum foil. Place a wire cooling rack on top.

This wire rack is very important and allows these to crisp up. You don’t want them to be sitting in grease.

There are actually quite a few ways to use a cooling rack besides cooling cookies!

STEP TWO: ASSEMBLE THE BITES

If you haven’t already cut your chicken into small bite-sized piece now is the time to do that. Be sure to cut each slice of bacon into 4 equal pieces.

Season each chicken bite with the barbeque seasoning. I just put the chicken in a bowl and sprinkle the seasoning on the chicken and stir to coat each piece.

Wrap each bite of chicken with a piece of bacon and use a toothpick to secure them together.

STEP THREE: BAKE

Place all of the wrapped chicken bites onto the cooling racks and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

When the timer goes off remove the BBQ Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites from the oven and brush barbeque sauce on top of every single piece of chicken.

Put the bites back into the oven and broil for 5 more minutes.

TRY NOT TO EAT THE BBQ BACON WRAPPED CHICKEN BITES BEFORE THE PARTY

The hardest part for me is to make sure my BBQ Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites actually last long enough to put on a platter and take to the party. There are a lot of kids running around my house who like to stop in for a quick test bite. Before I know it the platter is a lot lighter!

  1. I have not tried any of these yet, but my boyfriend and sister have birthdays on the same day and I was going nuts, figuring everything out on my own. Decorating, food and gifts. The fact that you put these finger bites in categories, with the recipe and ingredients all in one website just made me cry of relief and joy. I totally had to bookmark and favorite your Website as I’ll be using this quite often. What a life saver. Thank you.
