Death on a Stick

“What is in these? They are delicious”-someone asked me at the Super Bowl party I took these to.

“Just bacon, sugar, maple syrup and blue cheese”-I listed

“Just everything that is bad for you”-

Basically. But does it matter when these chicken bites are so delicious? Is there anything better than bacon and blue cheese though? Especially when the maple bacon is dredged in sugar and stuffed with blue cheese. I found this recipe on food network and updated the original Paula Deen Sweet Chicken Bacon Wraps recipe by adding some blue cheese in the middle of it all.

Ingredients: 1 1/4 pounds boneless chicken breasts, 1 lb sliced bacon (I used maple bacon), 2/3 cup brown sugar, 2 tablespoons chili powder, 1 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese

Preheat oven to 350. In a bowl combine the chili powder and brown sugar

Slice the chicken into slices. Paula Deen cut the chicken into cubes but since I added blue cheese, I sliced it instead. Add blue cheese to the chicken strips.

Slice the bacon into thirds. Wrap each chicken slice with bacon

Secure with toothpicks

Dredge the chicken bits in sugar/chili mixture

Spray the cookie sheet with non-stick spray and bake for 30 to 35 minutes
