For an Asian style appetizer with a beautiful presentation, try these Garlic Chicken with Bok Choy Rice Cakes. Japanese short or medium grain rice is cooked, then mixed with bok choy, green onions, sesame, and rice vinegar seasoned with sugar and salt. The rice is cooled in a large baking pan, then cut into small circles to make little cakes. They are topped with garlic chicken and shredded green onions. There is a bit of prep work, but the rice can be made up to 2 days in advance. You can also go the lazy route like Chad and just make a meal out of them by topping chicken over the rice without cutting them into cakes.
