Tangy, sweet/sour/salty combination of Bacon, Chicken and Apricots make this kebab a winner at any BBQ #Kebabs #ChickenKebabs #BBQ #Grilling

Bacon makes everything better ! It is true :-). I am sure you have seen many bacon-wrapped-this-or-that recipes before and if you are a true bacon lover, you definitely have your own collection of favorites.

One of mine are these Bacon wrapped Chicken and Apricot kebabs ! Magnificent … even if I say so myself.

Throw in some sweet, slightly sour, Apricots to Bacon and Chicken and you have a tangy, sweet/sour/salty delight.

The marinating is only 30 minutes, thread the kebabs and grill – can not be easier.

I do not wrap each cube of Chicken in Bacon as I think that is a little much, but you can do as you prefer – wrap half, or all of them.

Do however, watch these kebabs closely when grilling as the added Jam, which is very sweet, also burns very easily. Watch and turn frequently and you should not have a problem and Chicken cooks so quickly anyhow.

I actually do like a little burnt edges on the Bacon, but not everyone does.
