Quick little appy that disappears fast. Cooking time does not include chilling time. You can add a dash of hot sauce for more heat.

These were fantastic! I doubled the recipe & got 8. Next time, i'm going to put the filling on even thicker. I think i over-chopped the chicken using the food processor, so next time, i'll finely chop it w/ a knife and add it w/ the cheese. These were delicious & quite a few friends copied out the recipe. Thanks so much. Such an easy make-ahead appetizer!
