15 minute chicken salad bites with cranberries and walnuts
These Chicken Salad Bites with Cranberries and Walnuts are the easiest little appetizers, and they’re ready in only 15 minutes! Just stir cooked chicken together with the Greek Yogurt dressing, and then spoon it into purchased fillo cups. Or you can make your own wonton cups from scratch!
Should we even discuss that it is election day today? I think not. That most likely will make every single one of us loose our appetites completely.
Instead let’s talk about these little appetizers! Aren’t they adorbs?
I got the idea for them from one of my old recipes Sesame Chicken Wonton Cups. This time, I made the chicken salad much more traditional with a creamy base. I lightened it up with Greek Yogurt and added in tarragon, because that’s my fave!
Then I put in some cranberries and walnuts for added flavor and interest. It is such a fantastic combination.
Then I just spooned the chicken salad into my home-made wonton cups. But I also tried it in those purchased fillo cups and that was equally as good.
