Stuffed Chicken Bites
The chicken meatball reminds me of a miniature version of chicken dinner, filled with stuffing and paired with my favourite flavour combination, goat cheese and cranberries. Not only are they tasty but they look pretty fancy with only a few ingredients and minutes of preparation.
With a crispy outside, a juicy chicken inside and a perfectly creamy tart but sweet flavour, you will have mouths watering for more. Make up a batch of these for your holiday guests through the New Year and your guests will clear the platter. That is if you can keep from eating your own appetizers first.
While shopping for my ingredients, I choose the freshest ingredients. Specifically for chicken, I look for the Raised by a Canadian Farmer logo which tells me that the chicken is raised in Canada by farmers dedicated to producing unmatched quality chicken that meets the highest nutrient, food safety and animal care standards.
You can read more about Canadian Raised Chicken on the ChickenFarmers.ca website, understanding the Supply Chain will relieve any concerns you may have.
