    I used regular mayonnaise with about two tablespoons of hot and spicy mayonnaise added to make 1/3 cup. I also cooked the chicken breasts in chicken broth, because I had some broth over from another recipe. Also used cilantro paste as recommended from another reviewer, it worked out great. I think I'll make the circles larger next time when ****** these, because two tablespoons didn't really fit. Could have been because my chicken wasn't shredded enough. Made chicken soup with the strained cooking broth by adding some chopped carrots, celery and small pasta. Add one chicken bullion cube to pop the flavor and some parsley flakes.
