Chicken Cordon Bleu Bites

My husband and I were out to eat the other day and I was brainstorming ideas for yummy appetizers to have at a Superbowl Sunday party when this brilliant idea popped into my head. Chicken Cordon Bleu Bites! Well, at least I thought it was brilliant at the time and if I must say so myself I think they turned out pretty darn delicious. I made a bunch of appetizers the other night and had my best friend and her husband over as taste testers. These were included among the appetizers and my best friend ended up hoarding them all for herself and telling her husband they were gross so he wouldn’t partake of her goods. I think it is a bit of an understatement to say that she loved them. :)

    This is a great idea. I think I’m going to make them but use fresh breaded chicken instead of the nuggets. Question for you….when you say Pillsbury Buttermilk Crescent dough, do you mean the biscuits? Thanks!
