Chicken Caesar Salad in Baked Bread Cups

Hello friends, I wanted to share a yummy and easy appetizer.  These are bite sized appetizers.  I made them last night.  Since Paul and I love caesar salad,  plus my husband loves bread, these are now a go to easy to make appetizer.

My husband told me they were the best.  He could eat them everyday.




The bread cups could be baked ahead of time.  You can freeze them too.
A perfect bite for parties.  You can also use jumbo muffin pan and make individual salad cups for each guest.  In the past, I have always made a traditional caesar salad dressing.  This new dressing in my favorite.  Lots of flavor.

Yield: 12 cups
