Bacon Wrapped Chicken

Because everything is better with chicken, especially something that was already good to start with!

Double Barbecue Bacon-Wrapped Grilled Chicken
from Betty Crocker

Mouthwatering and moist, this grilled chicken gets flavor from bacon and two kinds of barbecue sauce, one tangy, the other creamy with a kick.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Makes 4 servings

White Barbecue Sauce
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons chopped parsley
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red pepper sauce
Bacon-Wrapped Chicken
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 8 slices packaged precooked bacon
  • 2 teaspoons barbecue seasoning
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  1. Heat gas or charcoal grill. In small bowl, stir together white barbecue sauce ingredients; cover and refrigerate until serving time.
  2. Wrap each chicken breast with 2 slices bacon, stretching bacon to cover as much of the breast as possible; secure ends of bacon to chicken with toothpicks. Sprinkle both sides with barbecue seasoning.
  3. Place chicken on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 5 minutes. Brush with 2 tablespoons of the barbecue sauce. Cook 5 to 7 minutes longer or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°F). Turn chicken; brush with remaining barbecue sauce. Serve chicken topped with white barbecue sauce.
