Ok, moving on…

These chicken bites are what we ate for dinner last night and they took me exactly 27 minutes to make start to finish. No joke! And, they were REALLY good! Chicken topped with blue cheese, wrapped all up with bacon and smothered with BBQ sauce.

Sound good?

Well they totally were! Sweet from the bbq sauce, salty from the bacon, creamy from the cheese….all the flavors work so well together and made a great main course for us! And the bacon keeps the chicken super moist! Bonus!

I honestly had football parties/appetizers on the brain when I concocted these little babies because they seem like good snacking/guy food. And you only need 4 ingredients! That’s right! Only four! Give these a whirl and you’ll see why we went crazy over them!

And, because I love ya, here are some more football friendly eats that you are sure to love!

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites

These tasty bite-sized barbeque chicken bites are topped with blue cheese and wrapped in bacon. They make a great appetizer or dinner.
servings 20 bites
Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 2 large chicken breasts boneless, skinless
  • 5 slices hickory smoked bacon
  • 1/3 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • 3 tablespoons BBQ sauce + a splash of water to thin it out


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cooling rack over baking sheet and spray lightly with non stick cooking spray and set aside.
  • On a large cutting board, slice bacon strips into 4 sections to get 20 small slices. Cut two chicken breasts into 20 bite-sized pieces.
  • To assemble, place a scant teaspoon of blue cheese on top of a piece of chicken. Place a strip of bacon on top of the blue cheese and stretch it around the piece of chicken, securing it with a toothpick. It’s fine if the bacon doesn’t stretch the entire way around! Place on baking rack, with the blue cheese facing up.
  • In a small bowl, mix bbq sauce with a little water to thin it out and baste the chicken bites. Place into preheated oven and bake 15 minutes. For crispier bacon, switch the oven to broil and cook until desired crispiness is attained. {You may have to flip your chicken bites to crisp up all sides.} Remove from oven and serve.

    Great recipe!

    Rather than water to thin out the Barbecue sauce, I used apple juice and mixed in some brown sugar. Gives it just that extra touch of sweetness and caramelized on the outside. Was like candy!

    My daughter is getting married next year and these would make great appetizer. Could they be baked ahead of time and then put in a warmer?
