  1. Soak 8 wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes. Preheat grill to medium or medium-low heat. (Between 300-350 degrees F.)
  2. Cut the chicken breasts into 3/4 inch bite-sized pieces. Then cut the bacon into 3/4 inch strips. Alternate threading the chicken and bacon onto 8 skewers, leaving a bare handle on one end of each skewer. Sprinkle the chicken skewers with salt and pepper.
  3. Place the barbeque sauce, MUSSELMAN'S® Apple Butter, and chipotle peppers in the blender. Puree until smooth.
  4. Grill the chicken skewers for 4 minutes per side. Then brush the skewers with the chipotle apple BBQ sauce and grill another 3-4 minutes per side, until the edges of the bacon are crisp, but not burned. Serve warm.


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Thread the skewers with chicken and bacon, then puree the barbeque sauce as directed above. Lay the chicken skewers on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet and brush well with the BBQ sauce. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the edges of the bacon are crispy.
