Instructions
  1. Slice the cucumber making either 48 rounds or squares.
  2. Shred your chicken with a food processor if you have one or using a fork.
  3. In a bowl thoroughly mix the chicken, mayo, cilantro, scallions and cumin and salt and pepper.
  4. Lay a slice of cucumber on the plate you will serve the appetizer on. Add a heaping tablespoon of the chicken salad on the cucumber, lay another piece on top.
  5. Add a toothpick to hold it together.
  6. Place kalamata, black or green olives through the top of the toothpick to pretty it up!
  7. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
Recipe Notes

Extra Tips:

Cut the cucumber ends off, then sliced it in half, then lengthwise. I wanted them to resemble little crackers or tiny sandwiches. You can easily just slice the cucumber and use rounds.

Cucumbers vary in size but I was able to make 24 “sandwich” bites. That was 48 sliced pieces.

I used chicken I had in the freezer from my freezer cooking burrito recipe and it was seriously delicious! Use whatever cooked chicken you have on hand.

I shredded the chicken because you can use a lot less mayo rather than just using chopped chicken. It may seem dry at first, but work with it and it will absorb well and be just as tasty even though it doesn’t have tons of mayo.
