Chicken Macadamia Appetizers Recipe

Chicken Macadamia Appetizers           

1 can Underwood® White Meat Chicken Spread
1/4 cup light cream cheese with roasted garlic
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
1/3 cup coarsely chopped macadamia nuts or almonds
1 pkg. Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crusts, softened as directed on package
1/2 cup Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs

Heat oven to 400 degrees. In small bowl, combine chicken spread, cream cheese, onions, nuts and mix well.

Remove crusts from pouches. Press out fold lines. Using 2 1/4-inch round cutter, cut 16 rounds from each crust. (Rounds must be cut close together.)

Spoon about 1 tablespoon chicken mixture onto center of each of 16 rounds. Brush edges with water. Press remaining rounds slightly larger to fit over chicken mixture. With fork, press edges to seal.

Brush top and bottom of each appetizer with water and coat generously with bread crumbs. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Prick top of each appetizer with fork to let steam escape.

Bake at 400 degrees for 18 to 23 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Arrange appetizers on serving platter. Garnish with cilantro and grapes if desired.
