Chicken and Bacon 3000 Poppers

Austin, TX just recently got a Penzey's spice store. Cindy and Mark Halle were here and we went. They told me about this recipe and I bought the 3000 spice. This is a great appetizer! From the picture, you can see I did not use the toothpicks. When serving for a party, I would have toothpicks available, but a spoon worked just fine! :-)

Chicken and Bacon 3000 Poppers

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 lb. sliced bacon
2 TB. BBQ 3000  (From Penzeys Spice store)
1/2 Cup firmly packed brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a flat roasting rack with non-stick cooking spray, place on a foil-covered roasting or broiling pan and set aside. Cut the chicken breasts into 1-inch cubes. Cut each bacon slice into thirds. It is easiest to do this before you separate the bacon into slices. Wrap a piece of bacon around each chicken cube and secure with a wooden toothpick. Combine the BBQ 3000 with the brown sugar. Drop each meat skewer into the mixture and toss gently with your fingers until completely coated. Arrange the poppers on the rack and bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes, until the bacon is crisp and the topping browned.
