    Hi,

    Thanks for another great recipe. Quick question, did you use any salt or black pepper or any other spices in your mixture?
    Do you think that it was taste good with ground chicken as well?

    Thank you! I absolutely love your recipes.

      Thank you Natasha, that’s wonderful to know:) Yes, ground chicken should probably work. I think any preferred ground meat should work for these muffin cups. These are really good the way they are without the extra seasoning, as the bbq mixture gives these a boost of flavor and perhaps the veggies contribute to some flavor, but if you want you can season these to taste. Also if using Worcestershire or soy sauce, these liquids are already seasoned so be easy on the salt level when using.
