While you could take the time to cook your own chicken at home, I took a little shortcut by buying an already cooked rotisserie chicken at my local Giant Eagle grocery store.  All you have to do is shred the chicken, whip up the quick sauce and roll these babies up.  But actually I saved even more time by having the hubs shred the chicken while I mixed up the sauce.  Go teamwork!

    • I used Frank’s Red Hot. It’s basically a blend of cayenne red peppers, spices and other stuff. Really any hot sauce will do though.
