These Chicken Mushroom Canapes are so popular to serve at parties. Toasted baguette topped with a hearty chicken, mushrooms and cheese mixture and baked.

Spinach and Artichoke Canapes is also a great open-faced sandwich.

These chicken and mushroom canapes are wonderful. The cooked chicken mixed with sauteed mushrooms and a cheesy mayo mixture is a great combination of flavors. Once baked the baguette becomes crunchy and the mixture becomes cheesy and so delicious. This is a great recipe to serve at parties or get-togethers! Always a hit and everyone wants the recipe.

ingredients for chicken mushroom canapes-

  • Chicken breast
  • Mushrooms, sauteed
  • Oil, to saute
  • Shredded cheese (Mozzarella, Colby Jack, Mexican or Four cheese)
  • Mayo
  • Dill
  • Baguette

TIP: Using a regular knife to cut the baguette may lead to some difficulties, so I love using a serrated knife it just smoothly cuts into the bread, leaving you with great bread pieces.

Hot Sauce or Sriracha may be added to taste to give the sandwiches a kick. Chopped tomatoes also work great! 🙂

can the canapes be prepared in advance?

Yes, this is a wonderful recipe to prepare the day before serving. Prepare everything per instructions and keep refrigerated. 

This is a great recipe to make and enjoy for a few days. I like to make a large batch and keep stored. Then I just toast a few open-faced sandwiches at a time.
