4 servings

Ingredients list:
  • 3/4 pounds Koch Foods Crispy Chicken Strips, cubed into about 1-inch pieces
  • 1 quart cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 pound Antonio Mozzarella Factory Mozzarella Balls
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Toothpicks or small skewers
  • Quick Balsamic Syrup
  • 1/2 cup Cavalli Classico balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sugar

  1. For the optional balsamic syrup: Add the vinegar to a small pot with the sugar and stir over low heat until it’s simmering.
  2. Keep an eye on it and stir it for about 5 minutes until it’s bubbling up and the hot syrup will coat a spoon in a thin layer.
  3. Then remove it from the heat and allow it to cool. It’ll thicken a lot as it cools. Be careful not to overcook the syrup or it can burn quickly.
  4. For the chicken, heat per the instructions on the package.
  5. To assemble the bites, add a chicken nugget to a small skewer or toothpick and top with a basil leaf. Then add a grape tomato and half of a mozzarella ball. Finish all the bites and then drizzle them with balsamic syrup.
  6. Serve while warm!
