If this is your first time here, then you need to know we’re celebrating Bacon Month and I’m totally bringing you all the bacon awesomeness I possible can. Check out my first bacon post, then head on over to the announcement post and enter the giveaway!
Next up on our list of bacon awesomeness are these Sweet & Spicy Bacon Wrapped Chicken Skewers! Look at that shiny crispy glazed bacon. Is it just me, or is it calling your name? Listen carefully…see! It totally is!
They want to be in your belly. Right meow.
You can grill these, or use a grill pan inside, which is what I did because it was 105 with a 115 heat index and I was like nope. Just nope. All the nope.
But the trick to grilling these, to ensure a crispy outside with a tender, juicy inside, is to not set the temperate too high. I cooked these at just over medium heat and they came out perfect. Lovely crispy caramelized bacon with juicy tender chicken inside. It was like a party in my mouth and all the flavors were invited.
Regardless of how you decide to cook these, if you’re using wooden skewers, make sure to soak them beforehand so they don’t turn into charred pieces of death. Nobody likes that. It’s less skewer-y and more ewwie. 30 minutes will do you just fine. Are you ready to make these Sweet & Spicy Bacon Wrapped Chicken Skewers? Because I sure am!
