Expert Tips

If you are heating the chicken, serve this appetizer on a warming tray so it stays warm throughout your party.

Hacked chicken is available at Chinese restaurants. It is a mix-ture of shredded cooked chicken, sesame paste and peanut sauce and is served as a cold appetizer. Two cups of shredded cooked chicken mixed with 1/3 cup thick peanut sauce can be used instead. Or use 2 cups of a thick, flavorful barbecue meat mixture of your choice, and serve warm or cold.
