These turned out really good!! I timed it perfectly and put them straight in after the chicken came out. They really need to be eaten warm. I tried one the next day and it wasn’t so great. Most muffins need to be eaten on the day! They did stick to the casing so this may be a time I recommend silicone muffin case.
You may be thinking my Thanksgiving plate might be looking a bit on the skinny side, first off I am on a diet, second the plates are bigger then normal plates and last I had seconds! ;0) Tomorrow I'll be posting the best part dessert!! Pumpkin Cheesecake!
