While this year looks different for the holidays we love to have delicious but oh so easy appetizer recipes on hand, preferably with ingredients we normally would have in our kitchen and these bacon-wrapped chicken bites meet all of these easy requirements.
I also love rosemary and as I grow some in my garden which even now at the end of November (thank you milder winter weather Pacific Northwest) is still growing I will add it to recipes that I know will give it that extra bit of flavour to enhance the recipe, not overpower it. Combine that will brushing these bacon-wrapped chicken bites with maple syrup and we think this is a perfect (and easy) appetizer.

Is that it? Yes! It’s really that easy to make these scrumptious bacon-wrapped chicken bites! As mentioned on the recipe card you can do some slight variations to give subtle flavour changes like different types of bacon. I personally love using maple bacon even with the maple syrup as a glaze because I love maple syrup. I am a Canadian for sure but who doesn’t love maple syrup?! If you don’t love it, don’t tell me I just can’t imagine, kidding (not).
Seriously you can’t go wrong with bacon and chicken and maple syrup, it’s truly a heavenly combination but then again we’re totally biased when it comes to this recipe!
