Grilling can be such an experience. You can make anything from appetizers to full blown meals. Cook things low and slow to fast and furious in a matter of minutes. Lately, I have been on an appetizer KICK and THESE smoking' yard bird bites are NO exception to flavor and grilling royalty.
First off, a little history behind the yard bird bites.....JUST KIDDING! Let's get to the nitty gritty on how to make this STUNNING and FLAVORFUL appetizer for YOUR next get together.
- 2-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into bite size chunks)
- 1 jar of hot dill pickles (I mixed Kosmo's Q Dirty Bird Sriracha into hamburger dill pickles)
- 1lb thick sliced bacon
- 1/4 cup TX Brew and Barbecue Screaming Yard Bird Rub
- 1/4 cup Kosmo's Q Sweet Honey Pecan Rub OR Honey Killer Bee
- 1 container of Palmetto Pimento Cheese
- Place bite sized chunks of chicken breast in a pan to coat with Screaming Yard Bird rub. Coat BOTH sides evenly.
- Remove chicken bites from tub and place on half strip of bacon. Add 1 hot dill pickle slice, one tbs of pimento cheese, and secure bacon around the bite with a toothpick.
- Season the chicken bites with Sweet Honey Pecan Rub.
- Prepare charcoal grill or gas grill for 2 zone grilling – hot and cool side. Shoot for 300º-350ºF.
- Place the bacon wrapped bites on the cool side of the grill away from direct heat. Let them cook for 35-45 minutes moving as necessary to prevent burning. Internal temperature should reach 165ºF internal.
- Serve these spicy bacon wrapped chicken bites with a sweet barbecue sauce to offset the heat.
This appetizer will elevate your grilling game, make you the GRILLIONAIRE of your own backyard, and can make tasty and delicious food for any event!
