This air fryer bacon-wrapped chicken bites recipe by Paula Deen on YouTube is a simple and great appetizer to serve at a family gathering, potluck, or party. The bacon is candied with brown sugar and other spices which adds overall flavor to the bites. It’s an easy snack to make for your guests without a big mess. I love how air fryers are so easy to use and quick to make anything without the extra grease. These look so good and I love the combination of bacon and chicken because it would keep the chicken moist.



  • 5 to 6 slices of bacon
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • teaspoon black pepper
  • oil, for spraying
  • barbecue sauce, for dipping


First, slice the chicken breasts into cubes and the bacon strips into 3 pieces. Wrap one piece of bacon around one cube of chicken, and fasten with a toothpick.  In a bowl, combine brown sugar, salt, cayenne pepper, and black pepper. Roll the chicken bites into the brown sugar mixture to coat well.

Overall, I love how the chicken bites are a perfect size and they are easy to eat. Serve them with barbecue sauce or your favorite dipping sauce. They are kid-friendly and would be a good snack. Also, it’s a keto-friendly recipe since it’s just meat, but they are a sweet and savory snack because of the brown sugar mixture on the outside.
