Chicken Nut Puffs

READY IN: 54mins
Recipe by Nicole Brummett

This recipe came from my mom's Sunday school class. These have been a staple at showers, teas, weddings, and get-togethers for years. I make these up sometimes just for snacks or a change from chicken nuggets. My 5 yr. old thinks they're great. :)

I found these in a Taste of Home appetizer cookbook. I changed the recipe a bit I didn't have celery seed and couldn't find my seasoned salt. (We were at the cottage) I added chopped chives instead of the celery and added a dash of dry mustard and garlic powder to the salt. I thought they were just okay but I had made them for patio party so i took them anyway. They were a hit so maybe I am not the best judge. I would have given them a three but the guests thought they were a 5 delicious so I am compromising on a 4. Thanks for posting.
