Chicken Confetti

Sometimes you must just entertain on a shoestring. Fortunately, General Mills offered us help in 1971 with this recipe for Chicken Confetti. It isn’t particularly imaginative and I am far more likely to serve it to family than use it to entertain, but it might be a nice choice for entertaining as well.
