Variation on a Theme

Some of the best recipes are variations on a theme. One of my favorite lunch recipes when I was growing up is the Beef Snackins one that I have made for the blog. In that one I use roast beef and chili sauce to fill biscuit cups.

I didn’t have any beef, so I decided to see what I could do with chicken.
