Skinny Chicken Bacon BitesFootball Season in our home is simply crazy.  You can imagine what it is like to juggle three football schedules.  If you could believe it, there was a time we were juggling four football schedules.  Although our daughter was a cheerleader, it was still another game that we wouldn’t miss!  To say that we are a true Football Family is probably an understatement.  This time of year, there are some Sunday’s when one of our favorite teams is playing that we move Sunday Supper into the family room and enjoy a fun football tailgate menu.  On the top of our tailgate menu list is always Skinny Chicken Bacon Bites.

Are you wondering why Skinny Chicken Bacon Bites?  Well what makes them skinny is the fact that I use turkey bacon in this recipe.  Turkey Bacon is perfect because it has less fat and you don’t get all the grease at the bottom of the pan.  The Skinny Chicken Bacon Bites are actually really crispy on the outside and so tasty on the inside.  The combination of the salty and sweet in this dish makes it perfect to serve on your tailgate menu.

Football Season is the perfect time to bend the Sunday Supper rules a tad and enjoy spending time around the family table in the family room  and yes, our tv is on… and you can find us enjoying Skinny Chicken Bacon Bites on the sofa.

From Pre Game to Overtime, we’ve got your Football Season covered.  Join us around the family table this Sunday Supper as we share our favorite football season recipes and tailgating tips all day long.  Hop on twitter at 7pm EST for the live #SundaySupper chat and share your favorites.  We would love to add your recipes to our Football Tailgate Menu.

YUM :) Looks great!

Wow, you guys truly are a football family! The only time the Husband and I are that devoted to sports is during the hockey playoffs :) I love that you used turkey bacon here – as much as I love the full fat porky stuff, sometimes there IS such a thing as too much grease. These look and sound delicious – the perfect little bite for a tailgate party!


Pam (@MrsMeltaway) September 9, 2012 at 4:01 am

These sound fabulous and you know I can’t resist a skinny recipe! Can’t wait to try these!


Faye Leong September 9, 2012 at 7:27 am

This is amazing! I never try turkey bacon before….will definitely try it out soon.


Paula @ Vintage Kitchen September 9, 2012 at 7:33 am

Since turkey bacon is unknown here I will have to use smoked… no problem. Wonderful and easy recipe! Happy Sunday Isabel!


Lane R (@supperforasteal) September 9, 2012 at 9:16 am

Isabel, this looks perfect. I need to start using turkey bacon again. Looks great for feeding a crowd.


Cindy's Recipes September 9, 2012 at 9:45 am

I’ll bet these don’t last long! I’d make 2 pans, Isabel! ;)
