Chicken Bacon Bites

 photo chickenbaconbites_zpse048721c.pngThis is a recipe that I have a pretty interesting history with. When Steve & I were planning our wedding, he said that the only detail he cared about was having bacon at the reception. My mom’s best friend was catering for us, and she suggested these bacon chicken bites as a good option.

I immediately went home and made them because they sounded so good – and they were. We even have a small bacon grease smudge on our marriage certificate from the pastor eating one before signing it (don’t worry, we don’t mind). 

Everyone who eats them loves them, and they’re just so easy to make that it’s really a no-brainer recipe for parties, tailgating, or any other time you need a good appetizer.

Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until the bacon is done.
