Zesty Paleo Chicken Bites

Appetizers & Snacks  |  Published on Mar 10, 2015  |  Last modified on Apr 2, 2018

I give full credit of this blog post to Lexi behind I came across her website the other day and knew I had to instantly make these! They were a hit in the kitchen and everyone loved the slight spicy flavor to them! We had them for an appetizer one night, and then used the leftovers the next night in a pasta dish. YUM! These also are a perfect way to trick you kids into eating healthy chicken fingers! I love that these don’t have breadcrumbs, but instead are opted out for flax meal. Love getting an extra boost of omega-3’s in the diet!
