•Cut each chicken breast into large, bite-size (about 1-inch) chunks and put them in a 1-gallon zipper bag.
•Stir together oil, lime juice, Sriracha and cumin and pour over the chicken. Let marinate for about an hour.
•Cut each bacon slice into two pieces and drape each piece over and around a chicken cube, securing with a toothpick. Arrange wraps on a flat surface and sprinkle evenly with brown sugar.
•Spray top rack of a broiler pan with high-temperature grilling spray and arrange chicken wraps on top. Adjust the oven rack so that the chicken sits about 6 inches under the broiling element.
•Bake at 350 degrees for 25-28 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
•When chicken is cooked, set oven to broil and broil for about 3 to 6 minutes, watching carefully all the while, until sugar starts to brown and edges of bacon are crisp
•For a lighter version, try turkey bacon.
•For crispier bacon, use precooked bacon
