Lemon Chicken Bites

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by FLKeysJen

These sweet tidbits are popular take-alongs to a potluck or tapas party. Because they are baked, not fried, they can even be made the day before to save time on party day. Steps #1-8 can be done in advance, then make the sauce and coat before your event, or make the entire recipe the day before and chill to serve cold. Nicely presented over a bed of shredded iceberg lettuce.

These were the perfect appetizers last night. I did use a combo of thighs and breasts. We also used some of it as a dipping sauce too. One of the best recipes that I have tried. The sauce was FANTASTIC!!! Glad I picked this and will repeat. Made for Spring 2010 Pick a chef.
