Ingredients for sticky fingers chicken salad.


  1. Cut cooked frozen cooked chicken into bite size pieces. In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, combine the hot sauce, brown sugar and water. Stir and cook until sugar dissolves and mixture begins to boil. Remove from heat and let stand a couple minutes to slightly thicken.

Yum! This looks like a good recipe for summer. The chicken mixture reminds me of the filling for lettuce wraps. That might be a good alternative to the salad, with all the same flavors.
