Bacon Wrapped BBQ Chicken Bites Recipe
Yield: About 3 dozen bites
- 4 lb chicken breasts
- 1.5 lb bacon
- 1 cup Kosmos Q Dirty Bird Rub
- 1 cup brown sugar
- House of Q Sugar & Spice BBQ Sauce
Preheat your cooker to 350°F, set up for indirect grilling. Trim the breasts and cut into 1” cubes. Mix the Kosmos Q Dirty Bird Rub and brown sugar well. Toss the chicken in the rub mixture.
Wrap a half slice of bacon around each cube of chicken and secure the bacon with a toothpick. Toss the bacon wrapped cubes in the rub mixture once again, just a few minutes before grilling.
Grill the chicken bites over indirect heat until the internal temperature reaches 160°F. Check the internal temperature with a digital thermometer.
Brush the bites with House of Q Sugar & Spice BBQ Sauce and continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
