Cheesy chicken pops are  excellent butlered hors-d’oeuvre for a party menu. These delicious, cheese oozing bite-sized appetizers are just ideal for big parties where there is lot of mingling around and there is still time for the main course to be served. They can be prepared in advance, even a couple of days prior to the party and stored in the freezer,thawed and fried just before serving.

They can be passed around with party tooth picks or satay sticks and paper napkins/tissues. And if the party is a glamorous one how about trying the tooth picks with swarovski crystals like the ones I found online on blog.timesunion.com

I am serving these hot and melt in the mouth chicken pops at the Fiesta Friday Anniversary party. The biggest and most sophisticated party online. The elegant party host Angie has made sure it is celebrated in style. This week happens to be the ‘Appetizers & Amuse-Bouches’ round. So, I am rushing to Angie’s place @ The Novice Gardener. Two most amazing blogger friends Hilda @Along The Grapevine and Julianna @Foodie On Board are co-hosting this big event.They are going to make sure every one is going to have a great time. Do join us for some fun and feasting 🙂

    Any appetizer that can be made ahead of time are high on my list of ones to make when I entertain… yet, these chicken pops are at the top of that list thanks to the delicious flavors you offer! I love everything about them… from the “stick” to provide ease of eating, to the masala flavor, to the cheese… well done, skd! ❤ Delicious!

      Thank you Nancy 🙂 You must still be having the tandoori masala which Sonal sent you. You can try the chicken pop recipe then. Even I like to prepare a few dishes in advance for parties, otherwise I would start panicking on the d day 😓

      Thank you so much Selma☺ Aren’t they so elegant. I think we can crumb coat and bake them. I am not sure how the flour batter will take to baking. Have you tried the AirFryer? I have heard it is close to deep frying without the oil.
