Hen Party

Gidget is hosting a hen party today.  The featured foods are chicken and eggs.  The chicken sandwiches are a family favorite.

 2 cups chicken breasts, poached and ground*

This may be done in a mini-chopper.  You want finely chopped meat.  This should look like a spread rather than a chicken salad when completed.  Add the mayonnaise slowly.  You want it to be a thick, spreadable paste rather than being able to see mayonnaise.

1/2 cup mayonnaise or less
1 tablespoon lemon juice
salt and pepper

bread rounds

Mix ground chicken with mayonnaise and seasonings. Spread on buttered bread and garnish with parsley. Makes about 3 dozen.  Or, top with an additional slice of buttered bread and cut into finger sandwiches. 

*You can also use the breast meat of a pre-roasted chicken or bake chicken breast that are still on the bone.

Instead of deviled eggs.  Gidget has stuffed the hard boiled eggs with her favorite egg salad recipe and added crispy, crumbled bacon. 
For dessert...white cupcakes with strawberry icing, topped with bird nests filled with jelly belly eggs. The nests were created by mixing yellow candy melts with crispy oriental noodles and shaping them in a mini muffin tin.
Gidget isn't too happy with the entire male world, so her door made it clear...
