Crab Dip With Tequila Lime Cocktail Sauce

While Maine is best known for lobster and steamers clams we have a love of all things seafood.  I came up with this Crab Meat Dip. It's easy to make and everyone loves it.

Apple Rum Sauce Rocks Chicken With Bacon

Looking for an easy appetizer to wow guests at parties? Chicken wrapped bacon with our Apple Rum BBQ Sauce is so easy and YUMMY!! These chicken bites are great to make ahead and just pop in the broiler when guests arrive.  I use 2 boneless skinless chicken breast and 1 pound of regular hardwood smoked bacon for 12 people. Cut the chicken in to cubes about 1.5 inches in size. Cut the bacon into thirds while it's still in the package. Wrap each piece of chicken with a strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick. I then put the chicken bites in a shallow dish and pour on our Apple Rum Sauce. If you are making these the day...
