Here is a quick and easy appetizer or brunch for those
Buffalo Chicken lovers.


Filling:
2 cups boneless chicken breasts cut into chunks sautee' in 2 tablespoons of olive oil with 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic and 1 tablespoon of worcheshire sauce (or grill outside on a gas grill until chicken is cooked and browned basting with sauce and sprinkle some garlic powder on the chicken)  then set aside draining any oil off.

Buffalo Chicken Pie taste like chicken wings with a cornmeal crust, cheese and blue cheese.

You can make this as hot as you like just kick it up with more cayenne pepper.
