Spicy PBJ Wings

Rating: 4.53 stars
I promise you that this is no gimmick. The spicy, sticky, and peanut-based sauce base delivers a distinct chicken wing-eating experience. If you're a fan of satay, you will enjoy this approach.

Indonesian Satay

Rating: 4.59 stars
This is an original Indonesian satay. I send it from a long way. Hope all over the world, readers can enjoy it.

Chicken Liver Appetizers

Scrumptious and sooo easy!

Buffalo Ranch Chicken and Cheese Dip

Rating: 4.63 stars
This is a creamy, hearty dip that works well for a gathering. It's not light, and is a good option when you are serving close to meal time, but don't want to prepare a full meal. I serve this with multigrain tortilla scoops.

Chicken and Spinach Puffs

Rating: 4.29 stars
These puffs are stuffed with a delicious creamy chicken mixture and baked.

Chicken and Sun-Dried Tomato Bruschetta

Rating: 4.79 stars
This recipe is the definition of versatility - if the weather's mild, use the grill outside to prepare this appetizer. In colder months, use your oven instead. The amount of ingredients for this recipe can be scaled back or multiplied to accommodate any range of party guests. You can also alter the amount of most of the ingredients according to your personal preference. You'll enjoy this variation on regular old bruschetta appetizers!

Scott's Coast-to-Coast Famous Chicken Wings

Rating: 4.62 stars
Where I'm from, they're just called 'Wings.' I've made this recipe for as long as I can remember - hopping from my hometown of Buffalo, NY, to Raleigh, NC, now to Seattle, WA. This wing recipe has been sought after by many that have tasted them, and I've never given up the recipe or prep method...until now.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bites

Rating: 4.05 stars
I created this recipe to try to duplicate some appetizers I had last summer from Stew Leonard's famous dairy retail store in Connecticut. They are great as appetizers or as a fun food for kids. I love to make them with bread crumbs seasoned with Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!

Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings

Rating: 4.78 stars
This is similar to the hot wings recipe served at a popular restaurant chain. If you have ever had them, you have to love them.

Liver Pate

Rating: 4.61 stars
A great appetizer for New Year's Day and the Rose Bowl Parade. Serve with thinly sliced brown bread, rye crisp, crackers or chips.

Air Fryer Chicken Taquitos

Rating: 4.81 stars
These taquitos are air fried, which makes them healthier than deep fried ones. Using shredded rotisserie chicken provides a quick prep but you can always use home-cooked chicken. Serve with sides of sour cream, Mexican tomato sauce, and guacamole, or your choice of sides.

Outrageous Warm Chicken Nacho Dip

Rating: 4.73 stars
This is my jazzed up version of classic queso dip taken to a heartier level, perfect for football games, tailgating or for taking along to pot lucks in a slow cooker! This is a serious crowd-pleaser that is served hot as a dip, spooned over crisp tortilla chips nacho-style, or rolled up in a warm flour tortilla! The heat can be turned up or down with the addition of jalapenos to taste.
