These Spicy Maple Chicken Bites are so easy and delicious, you will love them for both reasons.
I know I have been MIA of late. There is however, a very good reason for that. I have re-posted all 97 posts on this blog in a new format. My son and I have worked on it the entire month of January. I love the look of it and it will dramatically increase our SEO. My intention was to have it running by the first of February. Although it is complete and ready to be moved over to Binky’s Culinary Carnival, as with most large projects there is always a snag. We may have to wait another 5 days.
So, instead of this post being on our shiny new site, it will be on our old site but I knew I had to share these super easy appetizer’s for Super Bowl with you! The best part is that you probably won’t even have to go to the grocery store because you have all of the ingredients!
They have a hint of maple flavor and the jalapenos give them such a nice little kick!
You only need four ingredients for these tender little bites. Namely bacon, pickled jalapenos, chicken breasts and real maple syrup.
Cut the chicken breast into bite-sized cubes. Then season with kosher salt and black pepper.
Place a slice of jalapeno on each chicken breast cube.
Roll each chunk of chicken and jalapeno with a slice of bacon. Most of the pieces I cut of chicken fit in 1/3 of slice of bacon. A few needed 1/2 a slice of bacon. Secure them with a toothpick.
Dip each of the rolls in maple syrup and place on an old baking sheet. A lot of the maple syrup drips off but they still have a lovely hint of the maple flavor. Bake for 25 minutes at 425Â°F then remove them from the other and flip. Bake another 15 to 25 minutes, until chicken is done. (165°F on a thermometer.)
These take about 10 minutes to put together so that you have more time to watch the big game!
Have fun cooking!
