Of the 15 to 20 items I set out when hosting holiday parties, these savory puffs are the first to get snapped up. People enjoy the zippy flavor. They're a nice finger food to eat since they're not sticky or drippy.
These crisp, cheesy melts look special and taste great! "On busy weeknights, I like to serve these with a salad for a satisfying meal. But they make hearty appetizers as well," notes Sandra Futros of Dugald, Manitoba.
My wife, daughters and I often enjoy these buttery wings while watching TV on Saturday nights. The crisp coating of french-fried potato chips is also great on the chicken tenders I make from cut-up boneless chicken breasts.

At the Victorian-theme bridal shower I hosted, I spread this dressed-up chicken salad on bread triangles. It's also appealing served on a lettuce leaf. Apples and dried cranberries add color and tang.

My hot wings are a foolproof way to curry a little favor with the men in my life. Thanks to tons of sweet (orange marmalade) and hot (Sriracha) flavors bursting through with every bite, these wings are a winner on game day—or any day of the week. —Jennifer Locklin, Cypress, Texas
I came up with this recipe when I got tired of the same old wings. These are baked with onion and garlic, then broiled and basted with a mixture of raspberry jam, barbecue sauce and jalapeno peppers. The sauce is also excellent on pork and is great for dipping. —Sandra Fisher, Missoula, Montana
Over the years, Andrea Donofrio has experimented with many versions of chicken salad. “But this delicious recipe is my favorite,” says the Walpole, Massachusetts cook. “Chunky apples, juicy grapes and toasted walnuts add just the right amount of texture and great flavor to these tasty bites.”
This recipe packs a bite-size punch of creamy chicken salad wrapped in a crispy shell. "These yummy wonton cups make a great appetizer for a ladies' luncheon or a fun snack anytime," assures Starr Tharp of Parchment, Michigan
Zesty chicken strips pass the trim-and-tasty test LaDonna Reed gives most of her recipes. "I prefer food that is low in fat but has lots of flavor," she notes from Ponca City, Oklahoma. "I made these chicken strips for supper one night...and they were a huge hit! They're simple to make, too."
