In this video, Malcom Reed of HowToBBQRight cooks up a batch of sweet bacon-wrapped chicken nuggets to make the taste of your Super Bowl party truly extraordinary. Is there any way to go wrong throwing chicken, bacon, and seasoned sugar together on a grill? We don't think so either.
Malcom starts with bite-size chunks of chicken thigh for maximum juiciness, but any boneless chicken cut in small pieces will work for this. Then he wraps half a slice of bacon around each one, secures the bacon with a toothpick, then coats them with a sweet-savory mix of rub, pepper, and sugar to carmelize the outside once they hit the cooker. The color that results after forty-five minutes on the grill is irresistible.
Run a test batch of these bacon candy chicken bites to dial in your cook before the big day, and let us know if they'll feature at your next big game day.
