If you’re looking for an easy chicken recipe that is gluten free? This can be an appetizer for a crowd or a dinner you can prep ahead of time. Try these easy bacon-wrapped chicken poppers! Even the picky eaters in the house love these!
A Gluten Free Appetizer that is Delicious!
Two chicken breasts make about 36 poppers but if you’re making for a lot of people or want leftovers, just increase the chicken breasts and bacon. We made this for our eldest son’s 2nd birthday party and they went over well! We made them ahead of time and then kept them warm in the crockpot which not only was delicious but made the house smell amazing!
That then 2 year old is now 6 years old and he just asked for this recipe recently so I’ve added it to our Plan to Eat Meal Plan for next week!
I have this recipe in the appetizer and main dish sections of my blog because we’ve used it as both depending on the need. If having it as part of the main meal we pair it with a gluten free pasta salad, recipe is below, or Alexia’s Frozen French Fries.
