    I used FF Greek whipped cream cheese and mild wing sauce and it was so good! For texture purposes I used grated carrots. I don't even care for buffalo wings and I enjoyed this

    Very good. Instead of making the roasted tenderloin recipe, I lightly seasoned the tenderloins and grilled. I left off the blue cheese due to family preferences. I would recommend starting to saut? the carrot a bit earlier as that took longer to soften.

    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.

    I would leave out the hot sauce and the cheese. Otherwise it was very good
