If you are looking for a chicken dish that has some sweetness but a  little spicy too then definitely try out this recipe.

If you wanted to turn these into smaller appetizers all you would need to do is cut the chicken in bites and half the bacon. The rest of the steps would stay the same. Either way bites or strips you can’t go wrong. You could also add extra spices and make it your own. I call this recipe Sweet and Spicy because of the brown sugar and chili powder but the spicy is minimum. If you really wanted to up the ante you could also add some hot sauce or any of your favorite spicy spices.
