We are having a ROYAL WEDDING with an American Princess people!
THIS IS NOT A DRILL!
Last night, I stayed up talking to my Food Network cast mates about our Royal Wedding plans and our chatter quickly turned to wedding watching party snacks! Mrs. Joy Hall Thompson was busy posting photos on Facebook of her lemon and elderberry syrup that had arrived just in time for her to recreate her own version of the Royal Wedding Cake!!
(I LOVE THIS HILARIOUSLY FESTIVE WOMAN!)
But not to be out-done, I began to make a list of party snacks for me and the boys to enjoy. …after buying a fancy fascinator hat for my couch party, I got to work! 😀
My mind immediately went to these Red Pepper Jelly Chicken Salad Wonton Cups, which we featured on our YouTube channel last season.
I originally learned about the technique of folding jelly or chutney into chicken salad the first time I made Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation Chicken Salad, which includes chutney and curry powder.
Well I wanted a version of my own, so Red Pepper Jelly Chicken Salad was born! It looks fancy in wonton cups for parties and southern garden parties…
You can get red pepper jelly (also called jalapeno pepper jelly, and hot pepper jelly) in the jelly and jam section of most supermarkets. Here it is on Amazon.
Red Pepper Jelly is simply a jam made from jalapenos or bell peppers, or a mix of both. It comes in spicy and mild versions (but the spicy versions really aren’t that hot).
Alrighty y’all, have a great Royal Wedding watching party!
Would you like to make the chicken salad wonton cups with red pepper jelly together? Here is a video I made walking you through it…
I’ll be going live on Facebook and debuting MY NEW HAT via the Urban Cowgirl Facebook Page.
I’ll be inviting fans on my live stream to chat about the wedding and REVEAL their Urban Cowgirl snacking spread. We’ll see you there!
