Wowza! These are fantastic. Even my uber-picky DS loved these. I was crunched for time, so I used pre-breaded chicken nuggets, baked until crispy. I also did not have/could not find the chipotle bbq sauce, so I used regular and added in about 1-1/2 choppped up chipotle in adobo. Very nice and just a bit spicy! Thanks for a great treat.
