Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Bites

Recently we had five wonderful days with my son Jason and his wife Caroline.  After a short local hike on the North Loop Trail in Golden where we saw some mule deer, we came home to watch some college football. 
Having leftover cooked chicken, we made these Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Bites for one of our appetizers.  This tasty recipe is from Little Mommy, big Appetite.comSo few ingredients for such a great appetizer.
