Sweet and Sassy Chicken

These were inspired from my sister, Amanda. Lately she has been cooking up a storm and I can't wait to try more of the recipes she is whipping up. She made this recipe as an appetizer, so feel free to simply dice the chicken rather than doing whole chicken breasts and serve them with a toothpick! They have a delicious flavor from the different spices, and the bacon cooks into them perfectly. Thanks for a new go-to meal Amanda!

Should this be dried minced garlic or fresh?
