Chicken Scampi Bites

We have a thing about appetizers in our house. We love them. Like, a lot. A lot of times, we’ll do what my kids call a “snacky dinner” and just make a bunch of apps and eat them tapas style. {Don’t even get me started on tapas: a dinner where you can try 6 or 7 different foods?? Sign me up!}

These chicken scampi bites are a quick, easy and delicious appetizer that's perfect for parties this holiday season!

All this means that I get super excited when I find new appetizer recipes to try. And new products to try. 

So when I discovered that I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® has a new formula and a ton of recipes to try on their website, I was totally sold.

Start by melting some I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® in a pan, and add some garlic in there as well. Toss in your chicken, cook until done, and then add in a splash of lemon juice. Take the pan off the heat, stir in some lemon zest and parsley, and skewer your chicken pieces with your tomatoes, and you’re good to go! This recipe would also be crazy good with shrimp instead of chicken!
