I love the Super Bowl and everybody knows it’s not just the most exciting game of the year, it’s the #1 junk food day of the year! Well it can taste like it’s bad for you and still be a healthy snack. These little bites of chicken wrapped in turkey bacon are just the ticket. I’ve paired them with an apricot jelly barbecue. These little gems are sure to please the big game eaters as well as the calorie conscious, (I used chicken thighs, but the breast meat would make it even lighter) … But just to give you more ideas to go with, Linda and I added some other great appetizer ideas with links at the bottom of the page.
