This is my version of an appetizer a local Central Texas Mexican restaurant serves.  They don’t baste with BBQ sauce, but rather use a dry rub seasoning of some sort.  These are both quick, tasty and they are OK for Induction.


20 oz. chicken meat, cooked

¼ c. Smokey BBQ Sauce:

½ lb. bacon


Preheat oven to 350º.  Spray or grease a sheet pan.  Cut chicken into 1″ pieces and toss in a bowl with the BBQ sauce.  Stir well to coat each piece as best as possible.     Cut whole block of bacon slices into 4 pieces.  Stretching bacon if need bee, wrap a piece of bacon around each piece of chicken and secure with a toothpick.   Place morsels onto baking pan keeping separated as best as possible.  Broil a few minutes until brown, turn and brown other side.
