  • 2 medium boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 9 slices bacon
  • 1 Tablespoon Hey Grill Hey Sweet Rub recipe in notes section

Sweet and Spicy Sauce

  • 1 large bell pepper stem and seeds removed
  • 1 ½ cups white sugar
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon salted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Hey Grill Hey Sweet Rub recipe in notes section


  • Preheat. Preheat your grill to medium-high (about 375-400 degrees).
  • Make the sauce. In a blender, pulse the bell pepper, sugar, vinegar, butter, and Sweet Rub together until the peppers are chopped into small pieces. Transfer to a small saucepan 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.
  • Make the chicken bacon lollipops. Slice the 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. Season both sides of the lollipops with Hey Grill Hey Sweet Rub.
  • Grill. Place the chicken bacon lollipops on the grill and cook for 6-8 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reads 165 degrees F with an instant-read thermometer.
  • Enjoy. Transfer the finished lollipops to a large plate and serve the sauce on the side for dipping (or pouring).
