TASTY CHICKEN BITES
This comes from Tui Flower’s New Zealand Woman’s Weekly Favourite Recipes book from 1976, when cooks often used packet soup. I’m not a packet-soup kind of cook, but I have to say these turned out to be rather delightful. A great addition to a platter of nibbles.
1½ cups flour
1 packet cream-of-chicken
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup cream
1 Sift the flour, soup powder and baking powder. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
2 Mix in the cream to make a soft dough. Turn onto a floured board. Roll out to 3mm in thickness. Stamp out shapes using cookie cutters or cut into diamonds.
3 Place on an ungreased oven tray. Bake at 180oC for 10 minutes. Note: no extra seasoning necessary.
