    Reduce the fat content of this recipe by lightening the avocado topping with low fat or fat free ranch dressing.
    Use the pre-roasted whole chickens, and shred the meat for ease of preparation.
    Use your favorite microwavable chicken nuggets and toss these in hot sauce for ease of preparation.
    For another time saving idea; but pre cut celery sticks.
