"I have been making this since it came out a couple of years ago. I love buffalo chicken and this is so quick and easy and tasty. I add extra seasoning after I dish up the little kids portions. I usually make with chicken and sometimes substitute flavored cream cheese. I always use reduced fat or whipped cream cheese and no one can tell."

"This was really good but I had to all a lot more buffalo sauce to it to be detected. The blue cheese was a nice touch and rounds out the flavors. Kind rich to be repeated too often though."
