I feel that the most tasty is to use the frozen Worthington Chicken Roll slice in 1" slices and then cut each slice into 'bite-size' pieces. When this is not available, the canned Fri-Chik makes a good alternative. Sandi Hann makes 'chicken-like' tofu cubes that may work very well. 

This is primarily a 'family' size recipe-- I usually double or triple it as it is a favorite for our family.
