Flaked Chicken


Every Wednesday night, my husband and I have dinner with my grandparents. So, more often than not, I plan my recipe testing days so that they align with our dinner date so I can box up some goodies and bring it to them. Now, most of the time, my grandfather can't eat more than a bite of my treats which has him consistently asking me, "when are you going to make me something with Splenda® Naturals Stevia Sweetener, in it so I can enjoy more than a bite? What am I, chopped liver?". Well, this one was made just for you, gramps! And, I know, I know, I'll have to make you another batch since you were out of town when I made these. Don't worry, they were enjoyed by moi! Can't wait to make them again—and again!
