Notes

Buffalo sauce – we love the mild Sweet Baby Ray’s buffalo wing sauce. Feel free to use your favorite sauce or the regular heat variety of the Sweet Baby Ray’s Buffalo sauce. You can even toss your chicken in buffalo seasoning mix. Whatever you have or hand or according to your preference.

Chicken– for the chicken, you have a variety of options: 1) use pre-cooked and cubed chicken from the grocery store, 2) slow cooker chicken breast, 3) frozen cooked, cubed chicken, 4) canned chicken, or 5) rotisserie chicken. As long as it’s cooked and chopped into bite-sized pieces, that is what really matters.

Dipping options – we love tortilla chips, but you can get creative with dippers. For example, carrots, celery sticks, peppers, pita chips, bagel chips, crackers, etc. So many great options.
