Ingredients

  • 2 medium boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 9 slices center cut bacon
  • 1 Tablespoon McCormick Grill Mates Hot Pepper Blackened Seasoning

Sweet Pepper Sauce

  • 1 large bell pepper stem and seeds removed
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon salted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon McCormick Grill Mates Hot Pepper Blackened Seasoning

Instructions

  • In a blender, pulse the bell pepper, sugar, vinegar, butter, and Hot Pepper Blackened Seasoning together until the peppers are chopped into small pieces. Transfer to a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer with the lid off for 15 minutes. While the sauce is simmering, prepare your lollipops.
  • Preheat your grill to medium high (about 375-400 degrees).
  • Slice your chicken breasts lengthwise into 1 inch thick strips. Lay a piece of bacon on your cutting board and top with a strip of the chicken. Roll into a pinwheel and slide onto a bamboo skewer. Repeat with the remaining chicken and bacon strips.
  • Season both sides of the lollipops with the Hot Pepper Blackened Seasoning.
  • Place the chicken bacon lollipops on the grill and cook for 6-8 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reads 165 degrees with an instant read thermometer.
  • Transfer the finished lollipops to a large plate and serve the sweet pepper sauce on the side for dipping (or pouring).
