    Cooked this on the grill. Turned out pretty good. Bacon makes everything better.

    Make sure you don’t have the sugar all over the baking dish, it will burn. Otherwise I can agree it tastes lovely.

    This was so good!! The entire family loved it. I took a suggestion from another review and used cayenne pepper instead of chili powder.

    Really nice flavour! I added a small bit of onion powder and put a rack in the dish as well. Would taste better with potatoes instead of rice as a side. Would make again!:)

    Delicious!!! My husband wants to add it to the weekly menu. I added cayenne pepper and probably could’ve added a little more because we like it spicy. When seasoning to taste, don’t be shy with the spices!!

    It was delish. I didn’t add the brown sugar, I’m not that into sweet foods unless it is dessert.

    Wonderful, flavor filled dinner! Wouldn’t have changed a thing about the recipe, and will definitely be making it over and over again!

    Yum! I love the heat of the chili with the sweetness of the brown sugar wrapped up in the salt of the bacon! I think i could cut the size, add toothpics and have a go to appetizer.

    It was excellent. My son said I have to make this again right after his first bite!

    I used turkey bacon instead, made 2 bowls - one with the spices and one with brown sugar. I sprinkled the spices over the chicken, then rolled in bacon. I then fried all pieces lightly (let sit on paper towels to absorb some of the grease) then rolled into the sugar, laid all out into clear baking pan. Delicious! Let the chicken sit for just a few minutes after you remove from the oven and the olive oil/sugar will thicken into a wonderful sauce.
