Meijer Bargain Recipe of the Week - Chicken Puffs

Bargain Meal of the Week

I look for several different things in a recipe. I like it to be somewhat kid friendly. I don't care for ingredients that you have to search high and low for and when there is not 105 ingredients! This recipe meets all my standards and I think it sounds awesome!! I hope its as yummy as it seams! Happy Eating Y'all!

I will not expense spices/oils since most of us have them on hand. W/C means with coupon.
