Bon Appetite!

Asian Chicken Bites with Peppers

Written By: Chris - Jun• 05•13

The gals were coming over for the newest season of Bachelorette and I needed to come up with something to serve on a fly.  I’ve been keeping the groceries at a limit between travels so I worked with what I had on hand in the freezer, pantry and fridge to create these tasty little appetizer bites!  They tell me that they really liked them, so I thought I would share!  You may not have the exact same name brands of sauces, but you get the point of how easy it is to “toss some ingredients together” to create flavorful and tasty dishes!

Ingredients:

Oven Roasted Chicken Bites, Schwans 1.5 bag thawed
3 Red Bell Peppers, chopped into 1″ chunks
2 Large Jalapeno Peppers, de-seeded and cut into thin strips
1/2 Large Onion, cut into thin strips
2 Tablespoons Wok Oil, House of Tsang (found at most grocery stores!)
1/3 Cup Kraft Asian Toasted Sesame Anything Dressing
1/2 Cup Hoisin Sauce
1/2 Cup Asian Dipping Sauce, Trader Joe’s Gyoza
1/2 Cup Chunky Peanut Butter

Set aside chopped red bell peppers and chicken.  Heat Wok oil in a skillet over medium high heat.  Saute the onions until they start to become translucent.  Add the jalapeno peppers and cook until soft.  Mean while, combine all of the other sauce ingredients within a crock pot that’s heat has been set on high, allowing them to melt while stirring together and the peanut butter has melted.

Toss with cooked chicken and the onions and jalapeno peppers.  Repeat the heating of the Wok oil and sear the red peppers to your preferred doneness and then add them to the chicken mixture.  Coat everything evenly and serve immediately.  This could be served over rice, but tastes great on its own as a flavorful easy appetizer and it holds well in a crock pot during social events.

It was also a celebration of Kristen and Jen’s birthday!  Love you ladies in my life!
