"I couldn't find ground chicken so I chopped up pre-sliced chicken tenders, it was still very good! Great for a light supper or just an anytime snack."

"I made these tonight and actually used the leftover baked buffalo chicken cut up from the October 2015 TOH issue I also added additional hot sauce to kick things up a notch. What a great way to use leftovers."
