It’s funny, but some of our favorite recipes are truly born out of necessity. This is definitely one of them. We were heading home from playing ball with some friends at the park. We had been out for hours, it was dark, everyone was starving.

We of course invited everyone back to our house and I had to figure something out for dinner.  It had to be satisfying, it had to be good and it had to be fast. I started brainstorming and all I could think of was game day food.

Recipe Notes

  • We have made this with left over shredded chicken. Rotisserie chicken shredded would be perfect and canned would also work.

  1. amazing flavors, way better than crockpot buffalo chicken which can lose the iconic buffalo flavor and sauce thickness. I recommend slicing up a fresh jalapeno for an added kick!

  2. I total winner for easy gameday grab and go food! Everyone loved them, next time I will have to make more.
