Spicy Bacon Wrapped Chicken Skewers

This is a great quick meal on the grill.  The rub caramelizes on the chicken and bacon keeping it moist and adds just the right amount of heat.  I recommend cooking your bacon partially so you don't end up with raw bacon in-between the pieces of chicken.  If you have a microwave cooker, just put it in for a couple of minutes so the bacon is still pliable.  





Spicy Bacon Wrapped Chicken Skewers

1# chicken tenders, or breast meat that you cut down into 1" squares
4 pieces bacon, partially cooked
3 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp chili powder


Place one end of the bacon on the skewer, place a piece of chicken and then weave the bacon on top of it, continue doing this until the piece of bacon is used up.  Once you have all the chicken and bacon used up make the rub in a small bowl of the brown sugar and chili powder.  Rub over all sides of the skewers.  Place on a hot grill and cook, turning once.  Cook until the chicken reaches 165°.
