BBQ Rub Bacon Wrapped Chicken

1 - 1.5 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Chili Powder
2-4 Chicken Breasts or 4-6 Chicken Thighs (skinless)
3 slices of Smoked Bacon for each piece of Chicken.
2 tbsp Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 400°

Combine Brown Sugar and Chili powder.
Dredge Chicken in Rub mixture.
Wrap each piece of chicken with Bacon Slices
Pour 2 tbsp olive oil into bottom of baking dish to coat
(line baking dish with aluminum foil if you’d like as clean up is kind of messy)
I actually used my Cast iron skillet for this so sticking wouldn't be an issue.

Place chicken in baking dish and Bake for 50-60 minutes
Half-way through, remove pan from oven and drain "juices" from the pan, and then place the chicken back in the oven for remainder of cooking time.

I served this with Buttered Egg Noodle and a Spinach / Seedless Grape Salad.
