Sugar Free Sweet & Spicy Bacon Chicken Bites! A low carb, easy finger food appetizer for any party!
When I think of summer parties and easy entertaining I’m always searching for finger foods my kids enjoy but are still low carb. Dipping bite sized chicken wrapped in bacon into a creamy dressing like my homemade Ranch dressing from my cookbook makes for an awesome appetizer. These disappeared before I could have a few for myself!
Aside from the necessary cutting of the chicken and bacon into bite sized pieces and mixing some seasonings and spices together, it’s really not that cumbersome. A few minutes of time in the kitchen, but if you get your kids involved in wrapping the chicken you’ll be free in no time!
As you can see from the photos I have some crispier looking bites and some not so crispy bites. This is for one reason, dependent on what you bake it on and whether you want crispy bacon or not. If you choose to bake these on a regular baking pan these will produce those crispy succulent looking bites. You can also place the bites on a cooling rack over a baking pan if you’d rather have less grease and less crispy pieces of bacon.
Of course my kids and I liked the crispier bacon and my hubby liked the less crispy bacon. Either way they are sure to please everyone and bake pretty quickly.
Please note you can make these spicier but since I was serving these to my kids I made them less spicy. These are only mildly spicy. These can be enjoyed room temperature as well!
