Spicy Chicken Appetizers

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Bergy

This is a lovely crisp finger food served warm to compliment a glass of wine or a cocktail. It is also good served as a snack. They are baked not deep fried! You may make the sauce posted or serve them with a prepared Teriaki sauce or a hot Thai chili sauce. You may double the recipe to make 48 appetizers. Remember to allow time for the Spring roll wrappers to defrost ahead of time- overnight in the fridge is best..

I made these exactly as written, and they were a hit! My husband and my 7 year old son particularly loved them (although DS had them without the sauce - he likes spicy, but not quite that spicy lol). Very very tasty! I have read the other reviews, and I disagree about the cinnamon, it really lifted the flavour, worked well with the other ingredients. These have a very definate Asian flavour, and we will be making them again (today's batch is already all gone!)
