Obviously, the amount of BBQ is completely up to you. I, however, like lots and lots of sauce. If it doesn’t get on my face, there’s not enough sauce. This recipe is great because its all up to you and your preference. What do you prefer? A drizzle? Or are you like me?

DIFFICULTY: Simple
HOW MANY DOES IT FEED: 20-30 bites
ANY CHANGES MADE: We used more chicken and cooked for longer
ANY SUGGESTIONS FOR NEXT TIME: None

    Do you soke the toothpicks in water or are they fine in the oven without soaking

    How much counts as a serving? Does it make 20-30 individual bites? I’m making them for a baby shower with 100 guests. So I’m trying to figure out how much food to get.

      I would count it as each chicken breast, you could maybe get close to 10 cubes. So, depending on if you want your guests to have a couple?? If you are having more appetizers, I wouldn’t feel like I needed as much. Maybe double or you could triple, if you want plenty. Hope that helps you! Have fun and good luck 🙂
