brown sugar bacon chicken

This is a spin off of the brown sugar wings that I made a few weeks ago. And what makes everything better? Bacon. These are easy little bundles of yumminess.
Slice your chicken into slices that will cook evenly with the bacon. You don't want part of the bacon to burn while the chicken is raw.
You will be liberally coating your chicken, so make sure you prep plenty of the spice rub.
Don't be startled- they should be this coated. Plenty of flavor, plenty of spice.
Curious Nora is curious!
Pop those bad boys in the oven and keep a watch- you don't want the bacon to burn. Be sure to cook uncovered though, so the bacon gets crispy. Serve plain- believe me, you don't need to dip these in anything.
Brown Sugar Bacon Chicken
Recipe adapted from Jam Hands and Paula Deen.
4 boneless skinless chicken breast
1 lb sliced bacon
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 Tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons garlic salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut chicken breast into 1 inch wide strips. Bundle chicken into packs on 3 or 4 strips and wrap tightly with a strip of bacon. Mix together seasonings and dredge chicken bundles through, coating completely. Cook in a pan or on a rack with a broiler pan for 30-35 minutes and bacon is crisp. Enjoy!
