Sweet & Spicy Bacon Chicken

Saturday I made this for the young people's Bible Study I attend, and it was enjoyed.  I adapted/combined these 2 recipes and will definitely make it again
Sweet & Spicy Bacon Chicken Recipe | Just A Pinch Recipes
Bacon Wrapped Chicken Tenders (brown sugar chili powder ...

Bacon - i used maple flavor (plain smoked might've worked better)
boneless, skinless chicken breast - cut into tenders (freeze for 20 minutes to make it easier to cut)
garlic powder
fresh-ground black pepper
Real Salt salt
chili powder (I had to use a lot - makes me think it wasn't very fresh.) (If you have good fresh chili powder, by all means, leave out the cayenne)
a dash or so of cayenne pepper
a small pinch of ginger
light brown sugar to coat

You can bake these in the oven, but I believe the bacon would be much crispier on a grill. Also, I pre-cooked the bacon slightly, so that the chicken and bacon would cook more evenly. (Good thing too!)

    Blessings to you!
