  • Author: Julie
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 40 minutes
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 36 pieces 1x



  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup apricot pepper jam (I used Just Jan’s Savory Spread)
  • 18 bacon strips, cut in half (I like to use center cut)
  • optional: dried parsley and freshly cracked pepper

For the Dipping Sauce

  • 1/3 cup apricot pepper jam
  • 2 tablespoons water


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place an oven proof rack inside a rimmed baking sheet and spray with nonstick spray.
  3. Cut chicken breasts into one inch cubes and place them in a large bowl.
  4. Warm apricot pepper jam in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds. Reserve two tablespoons, and then pour the rest over the chicken and toss to coat.
  5. Wrap each chicken cube with a half strip of bacon, and secure with a toothpick.
  6. Brush each one with the reserved jam.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes, then flip each chicken bite over. Bake for an additional 20-25 minutes or until the bacon is nicely browned.

For the Dipping Sauce

  1. In a small microwave safe bowl, combine jam and water. Heat for 30 seconds and stir. If it is still to thick, add another tablespoon of water and reheat.
