Chicken Poppers Recipe

Wrapped in bacon, these cute chicken bites can be served with your favorite dipping sauce. "I made up this recipe using a few food items that were on hand," explains Charlene Crump from Montgomery, Alabama. "It was an immediate hit!"
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 20 YIELD:25-30 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup ground fully cooked ham
  • 25 to 30 cubed cheddar cheese (1/2-inch cubes)
  • 1 pound sliced bacon
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness; cut into 1-1/2-in. strips. Spread each with 1 teaspoon ham. Place a cheese cube on the end of each strip; roll up. Cut each slice of bacon in half widthwise. Wrap each around chicken roll-up; secure each with a toothpick.
  • 2. In a large skillet, cook roll-ups in oil until bacon is crispy, about 10 minutes. Add the broth, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 25-30 appetizers.
