When it comes to food preparation, one of the most frequently used meats is chicken,perhaps because of it's versatility and flavor, not to mention its reasonable cost. It is no wonder that chicken appetizers will always be a big hit at parties, holidays and other events. Of course, chicken appetizers are also great anytime as quick protein snacks. Chicken appetizers can be cooked on the outdoor or indoor grill, on the stove or in your oven, and can be marinated, breaded, or ground up in your food processor with other ingredients and made into flavorful meatballs or fillings for pasta dishes, such as Chicken Koftas and Chicken Pot Stickers (shown below). Because of my appreciation of chicken, this Chicken Appetizers page is destined to continue to grow with more great chicken appetizer recipes.

This Panko Chicken Nuggets recipe offers a pleasant change from traditional chicken nuggets. Rather than using solid pieces of chicken, this recipe combines small shredded pieces of chicken with other ingredients, giving them added flavor and a wonderful texture. The ingredients are formed (much like meatballs) into bite-size oblong shapes, dipped in egg, then coated with panko bread crumbs, giving them a crispy outer crust.
