A very versatile recipe for Chicken and Creamy Garlic Bread Baskets – serve as a light dinner, snack or as an appetizer. Perfect to use up leftover Chicken and Bread.
Two or three of these Chicken and creamy Garlic bread baskets, add some salad and you have a quick dinner.
These are also great as a party snack as well. Sturdy and will not break apart when taking a bite. Therefore another ideal addition to your savory party platters !
I found this recipe, originally, on KNORR’s website, but as usual with me, I changed it a little.
The muffin sized snack might look small, but be assured, it is loaded with sauteed onion and tomato, Chicken as well as Feta cheese.
And then there is also the eggs which binds all the ingredients together, leaving you with the perfect appetizer, snack or light dinner.
We mostly have these Chicken and creamy Garlic bread baskets as a light dinner. However, I do make them quite often to add to my savory party platters.
Should you for some reason do not have a packet of the KNORR sauce powder on hand, simply make your own.
Combine one heaped tablespoonful of Cornflour (Cornstarch) with a tablespoonful of fresh Garlic. Mix well and use as per the instructions below.
TIP: when you pour in the Egg mixture – start with a little to each basket, giving it time to run into all the openings between the filling.
By the time you have done all 12, add the remaining mixture starting from the first basket you filled.
