If you want a portable, protein packed snack or lunchbox addition, these Chicken & Bacon Bites from Nourish: The Paleo Healing Cookbook are where it’s at! I love this recipe: it only uses a handful of ingredients and yet is packed full of flavor. The bacon gives a lovely subtle, smoky flavor and does double duty by making sure that these little burger bites stay tender and don’t dry out even a little. The result is a light bite that can feature in any meal you like or be an energy boost when you need it, whether that’s post workout or an “I-just-got-home-and-I’m-starving!” mouthful.
I’m sharing the recipe for these Chicken & Bacon Bites exclusively over at The Paleo Mom as a little “thank you” for Sarah’s kindness and generosity in writing the foreword for Nourish. Here’s some of what she had to say (yes, I did squeal like a girl!):
