These pepperoni wrapped chicken bites with cheese and basil bring the flavor of pizza to an easy keto chicken appetizer! 😉
- 1 pound of chicken breasts or tenders trimmed
- 4 oz. block sharp cheddar
- 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes
- 1/2 pound pepperoni sandwich size
- large bunch of basil
- **optional** Marinara sauce for dunking
Cut chicken into bite size chunks.
Cut off 1/4 inch slices of the cheddar, then cut each slice into 4-5 narrow sticks.
Slice the sun-dried tomatoes into thin strips.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Place a sliver of sun-dried tomato on each large slice of pepperoni, then put chunk of chicken over it.
Tuck piece of cheese against chicken on one side, then lay a basil leaf or two on top.
Roll the chicken up in the pepperoni. Poke skewer through starting at the lose end of pepperoni, and right through.
Skewer as you roll them*, and lay out on baking sheet.
Bake for 7-8 minutes. Then remove and drain from oil.
- Serve warm, with marinara if you like.
*3 per skewer works out well, but as long as they are not packed on tightly adding a couple more should not be a problem.Use the sandwich sized pepperoni. It is called Pepperoni Salami at some deli counters.
