This is by far one of my FAVORITE appetizers of all time!  It’s so simple to make and the flavor is absolutely delish!  I can literally eat a whole plate of these Sweet Chili Chicken Bacon Skewers all by myself!  They are a MUST for any gathering– especially FOOTBALL!

Sweet Chili Chicken Bacon Skewers Recipe

Bite-size chicken nuggets packed full of flavor…they’re gone before you know it!

Okay, so you know these things are good when my 83 year old grandma puts away the same amount of nuggets as Hubs!  These are always on my must make list whenever I have get together– I’m totally making them for Super Bowl Sunday!  I love that they have the perfect combination of sweet and savory with just a hint of spicy….obviously if grandma’s eating them then they’re not super spicy….they just have this perfect little kick!

You know I’m a big fan of SUPER simple recipes and this one is oh so easy…you can even let the kids help make them….when Little Man is a little bit older I’ll let him help but right now I’m afraid he’ll try to eat the raw chicken!
