If you love chicken and bacon, then you’re going to love these bacon chicken bites! They’re the perfect bite-sized snack or appetizer, and they’re so easy to make. Just wrap a piece of bacon around a piece of chicken, and bake until crispy. So good!

Tips:

1. If you’re short on time, you can cook the bacon in the microwave. Just lay it out on a paper towel-lined plate and cook for about 2 minutes per slice.

2. To get perfectly round chicken bites, use a small cookie cutter or a sharp knife to cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces.

3. Want extra crispy chicken? Dip each piece in a beaten egg before rolling in the bacon and breadcrumbs.

4. Don’t have any fresh herbs on hand? No problem! You can use dried herbs in this recipe – just use 1/3 of the amount called for in the recipe.

Notes:

These Bacon Chicken Bites are the perfect bite! They are packed with flavor and so easy to make. I love to make them for parties or as a quick and easy dinner.

The key to making these bites is to cook the chicken until it is just cooked through. You don’t want to overcook it or the chicken will be dry. I like to use boneless, skinless chicken thighs for this recipe because they stay moist and have great flavor.

To get the bacon nice and crispy, I like to cook it in the oven. This way you don’t have to stand over the stove and watch it carefully. Simply place the bacon on a baking sheet lined with foil and bake at 400 degrees F for about 15 minutes.

Once the chicken is cooked and the bacon is crispy, it’s time to assemble your bites. I like to put a piece of chicken, a piece of bacon, and a small piece of cheese on each toothpick. Then, just dip them in your favorite BBQ sauce and enjoy!

Conclusion and Recipe:

The perfect bite of bacon chicken is juicy, crispy, and full of flavor. It’s the perfect appetizer or main course. And it’s so easy to make! Just follow these simple steps and you’ll be enjoying delicious bacon chicken bites in no time.
