Pulled BBQ Chicken Toasts with Smoky Corn Bacon

Pulled BBQ Chicken Toasts with Smoky Corn Bacon is an easy and delicious appetizer to serve during game day! 

We made it!

To the Big Dance that it is.

My beloved Kansas State Wildcats squeezed in and I could not be more excited. Well, and nervous. Even though my palms will be sweating over the next two weeks (fingers crossed), I love this time of year because of all the ups, downs, twists, turns when it comes to the Big Dance. You never know what is going to happen.

The one thing I can guarantee is that I will be actioning these Pulled BBQ Chicken Toasts with Smoky Corn Bacon. First of all these bad boys are simple to make and great to serve while hosting friends or family over to the watch the Big Game.

What makes these toasts so easy is the Pulled BBQ Chicken from Curly’s. The bbq chicken is smoked for hours and is fully cooked. Simply reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop! You can find the pulled bbq chicken in the refrigerator section of the grocery store. Can you say, slam dunk?

To assemble the toasts, all you have to do is toast the bread, make the smoky corn bacon (which is a game changer!), pile on the pulled bbq chicken, and BOOM! Big Dance approved appetizer that is a total breeze!
