A Big Game Snack

The BIG game is coming up quick!

Having been in advertising for many years, I know better than to use the actual name for the extravaganza that occurs each year to determine whether the Champions of the NFL will be an AFC or an NFC team!

I could not afford to pay the royalties associated with using the actual name!  OK, now that I have covered my derriere (I am SOOOOO continental - that's just a fancy word for back end) and hope that the NFL will not come down on me, here is an idea for an easy and flavorful Super Bowl party snack!  Besides, anything with bacon in it HAS to be good....right???


Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bites

½ cup soy sauce
¼ cup packed light brown sugar
½ inch piece of ginger, peeled and minced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
8 ounces chicken breasts, cut into 1” cubes (24 pieces)
1 can (4 ounces) water chestnuts, drained, cut into 24 pieces
12 slices bacon, cut in half (24 pieces)

Mix soy sauce, sugar, ginger and garlic together in a bowl (or resealable bag), add chicken and water chestnuts.  Mix well.  Marinate in refrigerator for 6 – 12 hours.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place one piece of chicken and one piece of water chestnut on a slice of bacon, wrap bacon around the chicken and water chestnut and secure with a toothpick.  Repeat for remaining chicken and water chestnuts.

Place on a baking sheet and bake for 20 – 25 minutes until chicken and bacon are cooked thru.

Serve warm or at room temperature.
