Smoked Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites

As a family, we love the combination of bacon and chicken and searching for an easy appetizer this year I found a recipe in my notes that I thought I would try for Smoked Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites. This uses some of our favourite fajita seasoning mix to rub into the chicken beforehand and the brushed with BBQ sauce after cooking. They are best served warm but can be prepared and stored in the fridge for a few hours and then cooked.

Bite-Sized Smoked Bacon Wrapped Chicken Appetiser

The original recipe I read called for Barbecue Seasoning – however, the only one that we have in the store cupboard is a hot one that my husband loves on his steak. So instead I switched it for our favourite Fajita Seasoning which I make regularly and it took down the heat a lot.

As these are bite-sized they were perfect for the Christmas and New Year’s as you could stack the plate with them and people help themselves. As they are sticky with the BBQ Sauce it’s best to use a toothpick so that fingers stay clean.
