"Originally, this was a friend's recipe, and it won a contest we hosted at a site I used to moderate. Since then I've adapted it to better suit our taste and dietary requirements. Surprisingly, these are really very good eaten cold the next day, although warm is better. I've found the easiest way to spread the cream cheese is with wet fingers, otherwise it tends to slide on the chicken instead of spreading."
