Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is one kickin' appetizer! The hot sauce adds quite a bit of heat, but the spinach and cheese cool things down a bit. These are fancy enough for a cocktail party but would be yummy for gameday too.

Ingredients

3 lb
boned and skinned chicken breasts
1 bottle
Louisiana hot sauce, 12 oz.
1 stick
butter (divided in half)
1 1/2 c
fresh chopped spinach
4 clove
garlic (crushed)
1 c
shredded mozzarella cheese
1 medium
French bread or baguette (cut into 3/4 in slices)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Take chicken and place it in a slow cooker with hot sauce and half of butter. Cook on high for 5 hours. When cooked, shred chicken.
2
Place the rest of the butter and garlic in a microwave safe dish and melt slowly, a few seconds at a time, until all of it is melted. Brush onto both sides of bread.
3
Place bread into a well-oiled skillet on med-high heat. Brown both sides then reduce heat.
4
Place a small amount of the chicken and spinach on it and put the lid on till the spinach is slightly wilted (only slightly).
5
Then place a small amt of cheese onto the top of the crostini and put lid on again till cheese is melted. Do this until you have no ingredients left. Enjoy!
