I am bringing  you something amazing that you can make as an appetizer,as an amuse-bouche and in a large batch as dinner. And best of all, its a part a healthy diet. I named this recipe as "Chicken Wells". Because of its cool shape. They really are.... :) See for yourself. They are breaded with proteins and wells are filled with sweet and sourness in one bite. Ohh it fools your eyes darling. They are not fried,but baked ! —AshaniHett
