Gluten-Free Party Yumms Sneak Peek – Chicken Salad Puffs Recipe

Gluten-Free Party Yumms Sneak Peek - Chicken Salad Puffs Recipe

Coming this summer, a new Gluten Free Yumms mini cookbook filled with ten gluten-free appetizer recipes, plus two bonus recipes. Just like my Gluten-Free Holiday Yumms cookbook, this one is filled with beautiful photography, step by step directions, tips and other helpful suggestions. This collection includes recipes for Spinach Artichoke Dip, Bagel Spice Hummus, Blue Cheese Stuffed Buffalo Chicken Meatballs and these cute yummy Chicken Salad Puffs. More information will be coming in the next few weeks on when the Gluten Free Party Yumms cookbook will be available for purchase.  But for now, here’s a little teaser recipe.

The chicken salad can be made a day ahead of time from diced rotisserie chicken, chopped celery, red onion and pecans seasoned with paprika, salt and pepper. Once the puffs have cooled, simply cut the tops offs, scoop in some chicken salad and replace the top. Voilà, you have cute, little chicken salad puffs perfect for any get together.
