Author: Jen Nikolaus
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
2 Tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
½ tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp. salt
⅛ tsp. pepper
⅔ cup Truvia Brown Sugar Blend (or and 1⅓ cup light brown sugar)
1½ pounds boneless chicken breasts, cut into tenders
bacon, with pieces cut in half
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Generously spray a broiling pan with cooking spray and set aside.
In a bowl, mix together the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
In another bowl, pour in Truvia Brown Sugar (or brown sugar).
Roll chicken pieces in chili powder mixture.
Next, secure a piece of bacon around the chicken using a toothpick.
Now roll in the brown sugar until well covered.
Place on the prepared baking pan. Bake for about 30 minutes or until cooked through.
If you like bacon crispier, place under broiler for a few minutes until bacon is brown and crispy.
We paired this meal with a 2013 Ehler’s Estate Cabernet Franc. Our tasting notes can be found on Delectable and a detailed post titled, “A Tale of Two Francs” can be found here.
