I made this one morning to be a make-ahead dinner for my family, and it ended up in the refrigerator over night and then eaten the next day due to someone just having to eat out that night at their favorite resturaunt (mom! lol). It was perfectly fine though and the next night that we got to have them they were GREAT. I would almost recommend you let them sit the refrigerator for a while. It's like the marinate when they do.
