Thai Chicken Salad Appetizer w/ vegetarian option (Pillsbury)

A simple appetizer that will impress your guests! 

Super yummy Thai Chicken Appetizer

It’s Finger Food Friday! I was super excited to give this appetizer a try.

 

Thai food is a love of mine.

 

The Thai Chicken Salad Appetizer recipe was simple to make and tasted great. The only complaint I had was about the pie crust it sits on.

 

On taste only, the pie crust was AMAZING. But it wasn’t very sturdy.

 

So with one bite into the appetizer, the pasty fell apart, leaving you with a hand full of chicken (or in our case, chickenless chicken :) Next time I might double up the crusts.

 

The chicken mixture would also taste great any crackers, toasted bread or even cucumber slices! Hope you enjoy!

  1. The thought of this theme gags me, but seeing your daughter’s shirt makes me think we should add The Wiggles to the theme list for Bento of the Week…maybe next year sometime….

  2. Oh the Wiggles.. we have such a love/hate relationship :)

    How much Peanut sauce? See it in Step 6…
    Thanks

    • How the heck did I miss that! hahaha. That is the most important part. Must not have copied right when I moved it over. It’s 1/3 cup cup Thai peanut sauce (from 11.5-oz bottle) I will go add that in now!
      Thanks for the catch :)
