New Favourite Appetizer


Hope everyone's Christmas went well, and everyone's belly was full. We had a nice, but quieter couple of days of meeting and eating here in Winnipeg. This is a new recipe I tried and will definately put in my regular appetizer tray.

Chicken & Brie Croustini

4 boneless, skiless chicken breasts (or you could use leftover chicken/turkey)
2 tbsp canola oil
salt and pepper


2 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced in half
1/4 cup mayonnaise
8 oz Brie cheese
2 cups arugula
1/3 cup tart fruit preserve ( I used a spicey raspberry jelly I had, use something with a little kick)

Brush chicken breasts with oil and season and broil until done (about 7 min. each side)
Let coo and slice on the diagonal into 1/4 slices
(you can do this step the day before, or use your leftovers)

Rub one side of each croustini toast with garlic and spread a little of the mayo.
Top with a few arugula leaves and then one or two slices of chicken
Slice brie into thin slices, leaving the rind on and place on top of chicken.
Place chicken brie croustini under broiler for 5-7 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbling
Transfer to a platter and top with a spoonful of preserve, serve warm.

Happy New Year Everyone!
