The big day is coming….Super Bowl Sunday!! I have to admit I’m not a huge NFL girl. I mush rather watch a college football game then I would NFL, but I make an exception for Super Bowl Sunday. Yes, the commercials are fun…and the halftime show….but my favorite is cheering for the underdog. Makes it a little more exciting to me for some reason. So who will the underdog be this weekend….we shall see and I promise I’ll be cheering them on till the end.
Another favorite thing about Super Bowl Sunday is the food. I love mapping out the bites for the game! With that being said I had to test out a test run this weekend on these chicken salad crostini’s. The exciting part about these crostini’s is they are totally Paleo and your guest will totally not know they are Paleo either.
I’m going to keep this short because I’m one totally tired girl and need a little shut eye. It’s going to be a busy week. Working and mapping out some things that I hope will change a few things around here. Don’t worry nothing too major….just exciting! Stay tune and enjoy these Paleo Crostini’s!
Sundried Tomato, Bacon, Chicken Salad Crostini
1 pound chicken breasts
1 quart low sodium chicken broth
2 bay leaves
3 slices sugar-free bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/4 cup sundried tomatoes (packed in olive oil), diced reserve some for topping the crostini’s
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
2 to 3 green onions, diced
Wash chicken and season with salt and pepper. In a large pot bring chicken stock with bay leaves to a boil. Place chicken breast into the stock, cover and remove from heat. Let chicken sit in the stock for 40 to 50 minutes until cooked through.
Remove chicken and dice or shred chicken. Place chicken into large bowl and add sundried tomatoes, bacon, fresh basil, green onion, and garlic herb mayo. Remember to reserve some of the sundried tomatoes to top the crostini’s.
Cut the paleo buns in half and lightly toast in a toaster oven. Top each half with chicken salad mixture and top with sundried tomatoes and extra chopped fresh basil.
Makes about 14-16 crostini’s.
You can also serve chicken salad as is without the paleo bun/crostini’s. Still delicious!
