•1 loaf (1/2 pound) French bread

Method

•In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain.
• Cut chicken into 32 cubes, about 1 in. each. Wrap a bacon piece around each cube. Cut bread in half lengthwise, then cut into 32 slices.
