Tips

Remove the skin from the chicken breasts before you cut into chunks. This will help reduce fats for this appetizer recipe as well as make it easier to blend together in the food processor.

If using deli meats to alter this appetizer recipe, use low fat mayo or use only mustard to save on some fats and calories. Be sure to use low fat or fat free mayo when making your spreads to make it a healthier appetizer.
