A great way to use leftovers. My family love these for lunch with a simple tossed salad. They also make a good main meal served with fresh vegetables. Using seasoned breadcrumbs always adds that little extra. I've made small balls to take along to bring a plate nights.

- 1 cup cooked chicken, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup cheese (cheddar or your choice)
