SERVINGS: 12
PREP TIME: 30
INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup diced cooked chicken breast- 1/4" dice
1/2 cup diced avocado- 1/4" dice
1 cup diced celery- 1/4" dice
1/2 cup diced artichoke hearts- 1/4" dice
1/4 cup julienned basil
1/4 cup Caesar dressing (we like Girards)
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
DIRECTIONS

Lightly oil a large rimmed nonstick baking sheet.
Sprinkle 2 TBSP of the Parmesan cheese into a 2 1/2-inch round on baking sheet. Repeat with 5 more rounds- making sure not to crowd.
Bake for about 3 minutes, until the Parmesan is melted and golden brown.

With a spatula, carefully lift each round off the baking sheet and drape it over a cup of an inverted small muffin tin, to form a small cup.
Let the cheese stand until cooled and crisp, about 2 minutes. Repeat with the remaining Parmesan to make 6 more cheese cups. 350 degrees

Combine chicken, avocado, celery, artichoke cubes and basil.  Toss with Caesar dressing. Fill parmesan cups with chicken mixture.
