Not me, that’s for sure! This recipe is incredibly easy and a great way to work a little protein into game day.

I covered the chicken with potato chips because they add a lot of flavor and texture to these sweet and salty bites. Combine these with the red pepper, garlic and brown sugar and you have a really pop-able combination!

For different flavor combinations, try swapping out the garlic chips with some of your other favorite flavors like barbecue or cheddar.  

When it comes to entertaining, I’m all about ease, and that’s where these bacon wrapped chicken bites come in. You can easily prep them ahead of time, cover them and keep in the fridge.
