game day food: chicken bacon wraps

We were first introduced to these glorious sweet bites of goodness almost five years ago at a friend’s house. If I remember correctly, Mike and I kept each other's cover as we took turns snatching these babies up while no one looked. We ended the night begging for the recipe because it really is the perfect pairing for beer on game day or appetizer for any type of gathering.
The combination of salty bacon, sweet brown sugar and spicy chili powder is the perfect balance for any palette. Who can deny any of these delicious ingredients, especially when paired together. I promise these will not go ignored at a party, but will be one of the first plates to be devoured and guests will be asking for more.

  Chicken Bacon Wraps

4 Chicken Breasts, cut into one inch pieces
1 lb. Sliced Bacon, cut into thirds (this may vary based on original size of bacon strips)
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1-1/2 Tablespoons Chili Powder
1 teaspoon Paprika

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
Wrap one strip of bacon around one piece of chicken and secure it with a toothpick. Continue with remaining bacon strips and chicken pieces. 
In a mixing bowl, combine brown sugar, garlic powder, chili powder and paprika. Coat each chicken-bacon wrap in brown sugar mixture thoroughly.
Spray a baking rack with cooking spray and place on a parchment lined baking sheet. Place chicken-bacon wraps on baking rack and bake 30 minutes.
Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing.
