9 slices of bacon
1/2 pound chicken chunks, pre-cooked
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

Preheat oven to 450°. Partially cook bacon; drain on paper towels. Combine chicken, soy sauce, sugar, ginger, and water chestnuts. Marinate for 20 minutes. Drain. Wrap one piece of chicken and two water chestnuts in 1/3 slice of bacon. Secure with a wooden toothpick. Place on a baking sheet and bake in the oven 10-12 minutes or until the bacon is crisp.
