Now a major question is, “How many appetizers is enough when entertaining?” I personally like to put out a good variety, and usually wayyy more than I need to.
According to What’s Cooking America: “A fairly standard formula is used among caterers to figure out how many appetizers are needed from each recipe. 12 pieces per person times the number of people divided by the number of different appetizers.”
If the guest list has fewer than 45 people, plan on using roughly 6 different appetizers. For more than 45 guests, approximately 8 different appetizers. The rule of thumb for smaller gatherings is that 3 types of appetizers are suitable for 8 to 10 guests; 4 or 5 types of appetizers for 14 to 16 people.

Is there a difference between chicken tenders and strips?
Tenders are the smaller outside muscle of the breast meat. Strips are the other slightly tougher side. A chicken breast has 1 small section, that is used for chicken tenders. Fingers and strips can just be the rest of the chicken breast cut to size and shape.
Are chicken tenders better than chicken nuggets?
While primarily breast meat, nuggets can be made from chopped and formed from different parts of the chicken, while tenders are solid strips of poultry breast meat. If you find a quality nuggets from a high-quality, smaller company,” it’ll be less “cheap meal products” and more like actual “breast meat cut into chunks.”
