No Grill Needed Shish Kebabs

Last week at our Mom's group at church, my friend Hannah brought the most amazing bacon wrapped chicken! Everyone oohed and ahhed over how yummy it was! So, I couldn't wait to try it at home and knew that Matt would love it. ...And, I was right. It did take some time to cut, wrap and dip the chicken, but it was SO worth it! Also, I loved being able to buy so many fresh veggies. I don't feel like I do that enough! I served this with white rice! Enjoy!

Bacon Chicken Shish Kebabs
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 package bacon
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons chili powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut boneless skinless chicken breasts into bite-size chunks. Cut bacon strips in half. Wrap the bacon around the chicken and secure it with a tooth pick. Mix the brown sugar and chili powder. Coat the wraps with the mixture and place in pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. When I do these for dinner, I make them like shish kebabs. Just put the wraps on a skewer instead of using the toothpicks, and alternate them with veggies of your choice. Just coat the veggies in a little oil before you cook them. Pineapple is really good with it, but I don't recommend coating those in oil.
