Now, these are one of those recipes that I can’t tell if kids or adults like them more. I like to change up from my usual routine of chicken wings when I don’t feel like deal with the bone. How lazy does that sound? But it’s completely true. No bone , no mess, no worries!

The thing I love so much about making bites is they are awesome as a make ahead and freeze really well so you can make a big batch and then even sauce and freeze them for later.

This recipe is super simple and easy. Try it out and let me know what you think!
