Before Thanksgiving I bought a basil plant from our Sprouts grocery store here in town.  I love fresh herbs and was excited to cook with them.  Well, that one little plant has grown and now takes up a big part of the window sill above my sink!  I have been trying to find any and all recipe to add basil in just so I can use it all.  I’ve used in pizza dough, on pizza, in bread and on so many other recipes I’ve lost track.

When I had some leftover chicken one night I thought these little bites would be a perfect way to use more basil!  I already had mozzarella and baby tomatoes in the fridge so I was all set.  All I needed to do was assemble the bites really since I had everything on hand.  Don’t you just love when that happens??  I know I do!

I chopped until the chicken and mozzarella into chunks and stuck them onto a toothpick.  I added the tomato and the basil and repeated the process until I ran out of my ingredients.  It doesn’t get much easier then that friends!  Then you set them up and watch them disappear.  And they would be perfect for a New Years party.  [Hint hint!]
