    They are delicious HOWEVER the only reason I’m giving them a 1 star rating is because they DO NOT make 5 dozen! You would have to triple the recipe at least!

    This is absolutely delicious. Can also be used on a croissant for a wonderful lunch along with a spinach salad.

    Very tasty and different appetizer. Well, I thought it was different, but as it turned out someone else also brought a curried chicken type of appetizer to the party! I suppose curry dishes are becoming more popular. Anyway, these were widely enjoyed. I had some left over, and my family enjoyed eating them over the next couple days--quite a treat!
