I have found a great recipe for chicken poppers that my family absolutely loves for quick snacks to grab and go. I found the original recipe here, however, I changed it just a little to meet our dietary restrictions. I actually liked these so much that I ended up going back and making a quadruple batch to freeze and thaw when we ran out of the current batch. I highly recommend these for gatherings, family snacks or lunches, or refuel after a workout. I use organic ground chicken and organic vegetables to try and get the best nutrient intake for our family.

Sweet Potato Chicken Bites

A great snack, lunch option, or for a grab and go. These sweet potato chicken bites are great for those that want a healthy option for kids and adults. These went fast at our last gathering, so be sure to make a double or triple batch. They freeze great too.

Notes

I got this recipe from unboundwellness.com . I changed the recipe slightly, to fit my dietary needs. You can visit their website for the original recipe. 
I also enjoyed these bites cold out of the fridge. I portion them out into freezer bags and only take out what I need for the day and freeze the rest. A way I portion control and meal prep.
