2 Tablespoons Finely Chopped Red Onion
2 Tablespoons Finely Chopped Black Olives

Sweet N Spicy Bacon Chicken

1 lb. chicken cut into bite sized pieces
1 package bacon cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces (use turkey bacon for healthier version)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 t. cayenne pepper (more or less, to taste)

Preheat oven to 350

Spray a baking rack with Pam and place on a foil-lined baking sheet.

Wrap a piece of bacon around each piece of chicken. Secure with wooden toothpick.

Combine brown sugar and cayenne in a small bowl.

Roll each piece of chicken in sugar mixture. Place chicken on rack making sure pieces don't touch each other.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.

My recommendation is to make multiple batches!

Not exactly healthy, but oh so good...sorry!

Bacon Sausage Roll Ups. These are great because you make them a day/night ahead of time.

2 lbs smokey cocktail links*
1 lb regular bacon**
1 1/2 C Brown Sugar

Cut bacon into 1/4 strips. Wrap around sausage. Hold with toothpicks.

Arrange in casserole dish***. Sprinkle w/brown sugar to coat completely. Cover with tin foil. Refrigerate over night.

Bake @350. Bake covered for 40 minutes, uncover, bake another 20 minutes or so till the bacon crisps up some. Transfer to platter immediately and serve.

* Use the regular lil smokies, not beef or cheese filled.

**Try and get long pieces, thin sliced. I sometimes have to buy extra bacon and cut it into 1/3rds to get the pieces wrapped completely around the sausage link.

***I use a glass dish. When all that gooey junk has cooled, it is easily removed with a spatula.
