Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites
We weren’t going to do anything for Super Bowl Sunday…but a couple people ended up coming over so I made some low carb appetizers. These were the big hit…everyone seemed to like them…and they were gone so that says something 🙂
Update: It has been 2 years since I posted this recipe. Since then, I have made several times without the cream cheese and they are great! Just season your chicken, wrap in bacon, and bake. I have even put them in my son’s school lunches!
6 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into chunks
12 pcs bacon, cut into thirds
4 oz whipped cream cheese
6 basil leaves, chopped
3 parsley sprigs, chopped
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 garlic clove, minced
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
In a medium bowl mix together your whipped cream cheese, basil, parsley, salt, pepper and garlic.
Cut your bacon into thirds, and spread the cream cheese mixture on each piece. Then wrap 1 piece of chicken with the piece of bacon. It will only wrap around one time.
Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake in the oven for 30 minutes…until the bacon is crispy and the chicken is cooked through.
