Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

  1. Preheat broiler. Finely mince onion and garlic. Mix with shredded cheese, curry powder, sour cream and cooked chopped chicken.

  2. Spread over your favourite thin bread slices or crackers. Heat under broiler until melted and starting to brown and bubble. Don't walk away from this… it will only take 2-3 minutes.

  3. Let cool for a few minutes. Cut bread slices into 4 equal pieces.

Helpful Tip

For fancier occasions that call for fast snacks you can garnish with chopped fresh herbs, sliced olives or bits of tomatoes.
