Sesame-Ginger Chicken-Pepper Bites

READY IN: 4hrs 25mins
Recipe by La Dilettante

Little one-bite appetizers served on a toothpick. Could work as an entree over rice or noodles using larger bamboo skewers and more chicken/peppers. Used as an appetizer, they are equally good hot or room temperature. These were such a hit at our recent Hallowe'en party that I wished I had made more!

Everyone at our New Years Eve party absolutely loved these. I went ahead and put them on picks about two hours before party time and kept them in the fridge on the baking pan. So it was very easy to toss them in when it was time. I am a vegetarian so did not try them. I do eat fish so I think next time I will try it as a meal and throw some shirmp in as well. Thanks for a great recipe.
