Asian Chicken Salad Cups will be the delightful hit at your next gathering. Your guests will keep coming for more!

My family used to get together on Sundays. We would all meet at my parents house, which is only about an hour away from where I live.

Mom would get up early, cleaning and preparing food for everyone.

Most of us would bring something, but mom always put out vegetables, dip and nuts while she put the finishing touches on dinner. Dessert was usually cooling, and there were usually bites missing out of whatever it was because two (or more) of us would take the liberty of sampling it.

You know, to make sure it's good!

When the time came to serve dessert, the guilty parties would mock surprise at the missing section of dessert, which was pointless because everyone knew the routine by now. Yes, I was usually one of the culprits, and no, I never felt bad about it.

One Saturday last summer, I was rummaging around at home, wondering what I could bring to Mom and Dad's the next day. I had chicken, wonton wrappers and cabbage.

Knowing that we all liked to snack before dinner, I made these Asian chicken salad cups.

I put the salad together on Saturday evening and baked the cups Sunday morning, adding the salad after we arrived. I walked around offering these Asian chicken salad cups to everyone and they laughed good naturedly at me.

Apparently I was very energetic that day (lots of coffee, probably) and I resembled an enthusiastic server that you might see at an event, offering appetizers to the attendees. Even now I cannot mention Asian chicken salad cups without hearing a giggle and someone asking with mock innocence "What are they called again?” or “What's in them?" I don't get why they thought it was funny, but everyone was smiling, so that's a total win.

All these cups were gone too, so that made it even better.

Good food is made awesome with good people to share it with, don't you think?
