Chicken and bacon bites are delicious with prepared sweet and sour sauce or prepare your favorite dipping sauces.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless chicken breast halves, skin removed
  • 12 slices bacon, cut crosswise into thirds
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 quart oil (for deep frying; or more or less as needed)

Steps to Make It

  1. Wrap each piece of chicken in a bacon piece and secure with a toothpick.

  2. In a bowl, combine egg, milk, and water. Add flour, cornstarch, sugar, salt and baking powder, stirring to make a smooth batter.

  3. Heat oil in the deep fryer to 370 F.

  4. Dip each bacon-wrapped piece of chicken into batter. Fry in batches until crispy and golden (about 4 minutes).

  5. Check a piece in the first batch to make sure the chicken is cooked through and adjust time as necessary.

  6. Transfer the chicken bites to paper towels to drain. If necessary, keep warm on a cookie sheet in a warming drawer or 200 F oven.
