This is a variation of the Tuna or Salmon Muffins. I wanted to add pimiento, but didn't have any on hand. The chicken seasoning I used is a blend I found that has no added sugar. These might be nice served with a Mushroom Sauce or some gravy over them. These are good, but quite a bit more expensive to make than the Tuna Muffins. You could save a bit of money by not buying expensive canned chicken and use some leftover roast chicken that's been shredded. You will need about a cup or so of meat.
