"My husband and I really liked this but it was too spicy for my teen. We'll just have to make without him. Only adjustment I would make would be for less canola oil."

"Really liked the taste! Used Tyson frozen chicken tenders prepared according to directions in oven transferred to stove top skillet following rest of recipe to complete. Used cheeses on hand-mozzarella / cheddar. Really quick after working all day! About 1/2 hour total. Hubby loved the spicey kick."

"YUM! I made this the other night! I pulled out the leftovers and snacked on them while I made dinner last night. I just couldn't get enough. I used the medium wing sauce since I'm not a spicy person & I also used panko bread crumbs (Japanese bread crumbs that have WAY more substance than traditional bread crumbs). The panko bread crumbs made the chicken nice & crunchy. I'll scale back the cheese next time-too much for me & I'll probably try adding some crumbled blue cheese on top for a more traditional take on the whole buffalo style chicken. SOOO glad I tried this one!!"

"Yummy. I use barbeque sauce and don't cook the chicken quite so long."
