We’ve been playing since our mob was encapsulated inside the community at the old Recipezaar. After the forums there went *kaput* we found new digs elsewhere.

  1. We made these chicken lollipops for a light dinner. Love how the croutons added a really nice crunchy coating. Next time I would add more curry powder, but just my preference. We tried using tamarind chutney, but found that these lollipops went better with mango chutney.

  2. Dear Sue! I would like to tell you that these bites were so delicious and that my family said that these are real wonderful chicken nuggets as the come out crunchy, very tasty and juicy! Couldn’t have turn better! As chutney we used a special preparation made with figs, which was waiting to be tried with something special like your great bites! Thanks a lot, I will make this again! I really recommend this recipe!

  3. Wow, Sue, these are wonderful. The spicing is spot on in these very tasty little treats. We enjoyed these with our dinner the other day… when they were all gone, we were looking for more… so very good. Quick, easy and super tender, very flavorful and delicious. Thanks for sharing your recipe with us and for coming to play. So happy that you are. Made as written and wouldn’t change a thing. Made for Round 1 – RSC game. ♥
