  1. Stir together first 3 ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.

  2. Rub barbecue seasoning evenly onto each chicken breast. Wrap 1 bacon slice around 1 seasoned chicken breast, stretching bacon, as necessary, to cover most of surface of chicken; slightly flatten each breast with palm of hand. Secure bacon with a wooden pick. Firmly press chicken in breadcrumbs in a large shallow bowl. Repeat procedure with remaining chicken, bacon, and breadcrumbs.
