Pig Candy Bacon Wrapped BBQ Chicken Tenderloins

My wife and I were invited to a party held by some dear friends, Judy and Bob.  "Finger Food" was the menu.  Judy said to bring some "finger food".  Knowing that some of the other guests LOVE bacon, I decided to do a variation of another recipe that I do quite often.

These are fun and fast to make, and easy to eat.  I hope you enjoy them.

  • 3/4 cup Guy Fieri's Kansas City Sweet BBQ Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Guy Fieri's Carolina #6 BBQ Sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Three Little Pigs "Touch of Cherry" BBQ rub
  • Skinless and Bonless Chicken Tenderloins
  • Apple Smoked Bacon - thin cut
  • Dark Brown Sugar
  • Chili Powder
  • Toothpicks


Pre heat the oven to 450 degrees

- Cut the chicken tenderloins into thirds

- Cut a strip of the bacon into thirds

- Sprinkle the chicken pieces with Three Little Pigs Touch of Cherry BBQ rub.  You can also put the rub in a bowl and coat the chicken by rolling the pieces into the rub.

- Wrap a piece of bacon around the piece of chicken using one tooth pick to secure

- Mix the dark brown sugar and the chilli powder together.  Let the mixture dry out a bit.

- Place completed wraps in a disposable aluminum tray for cooking.

- Liberally sprinkle the brown sugar/chili powder mixture over the completed wraps

- Place the tray into the preheated oven and cook for about 20-30 minutes.  You may have to turn once half way through.  You may have to turn up the oven to broil to put a crisp on the bacon towards the last 5 minutes or so.  Ovens vary.

- While the wraps are cooking, mix up the honey, and both the BBQ sauces to make the final sauce.

- When the wraps are done to your liking, with a slight crisp on the bacon, place the wraps on a serving tray and brush the wraps with BBQ sauce.  Serve while warm.

Make LOTS of these, as they will go fast!
