I’ve been selfishly sitting on this recipe for over a week now, but I wouldn’t dream of holding out throughout football season. Last week, Chris joined his first fantasy football league. It turns out just watching it on tv is not enough to get started.

I wanted to send him off with a great game day appetizer and these sweet bacon wrapped chicken bites did not disappoint. Who can resist chicken covered in Kettle Brand potato chips, brown sugar wrapped in bacon?

Not me, that’s for sure! This recipe is incredibly easy and a great way to work a little protein into game day.

I covered the chicken with potato chips because they add a lot of flavor and texture to these sweet and salty bites. Combine these with the red pepper, garlic and brown sugar and you have a really pop-able combination! For different flavor combinations, try swapping out the garlic chips with some of your other favorite flavors like barbecue or cheddar.
