Thai Chicken Bites

My file of recipes that I want to try is so large that realistically I’ll never make all of them. For every one I make I add two-four new recipes. So clearly the bottom will never be reached. When I complete my weekly meal plan I always scour through my file and try to find some new/interesting meals to try. However every now and then I find a new recipe and it doesn’t go in the file. It goes directly onto the meal plan for the following week. This recipe is one of those. I saw it, I added it to the menu, and I made it. This is not healthy (at all…) but it’s amazing. Served with a simple salad it creates a delicious dinner, or serve it at a party as an appetizer. Either way you can’t lose! It’s somewhat spicy, somewhat sweet, somewhat crispy… and very delicious.
