Buffalo Chicken Bites

These Buffalo Chicken Bites can be served as an appetizer, or a main dish. They are like chicken nuggets, but better. They are also healthy, and not deep fried, or battered. I love how simple, delicious, and inexpensive this recipe is, to make.

My husband is a buffalo sauce addict. He puts it on his fries, steak, eggs, hamburgers, chicken, etc. You name it, it’s dipped in buffalo sauce.

My husband also loves our Buffalo Chicken Bake. But this time, I decided to make him a dish that was specifically dedicated to buffalo sauce, and created these delicious Buffalo Chicken Bites.

When we go out to eat, my husband will usually get some type of a wing dish, with buffalo sauce of course. But the wings are usually 50% bone, 20% fat, and leaves hime with 30% of edible chicken.

I decided to make my own buffalo chicken bites at home, and these were a home run. He loved them. But there is a trick to keeping them crunchy and not soggy, so read on to find out how.

Tips on how to make buffalo Chicken bites:

Step 1: Cut your boneless, skinless, chicken breasts into bite size pieces. I usually try to buy thick chicken breasts so the bites are a little thicker.

But they will still taste delicious if they are thinner. You may need to cook them for a little less time if they are thinner, so they don’t overcook and end up dry.

Step 2: Make the sauce. The sauce is a simple mixture without any crazy ingredients, and full of flavor. The buffalo sauce is a little spicy, so I even like to add a tablespoon of honey to soften the spice.

I usually just add about 1 tablespoon to the mixture. We put a little honey on a lot of our other buffalo chicken recipes as well. One of our favorites is The Winger’s Sticky Chicken.

Step 3: The secret to this recipe, is to bake the chicken on a cooling rack, on top of a cookie sheet. The reason why?

The chicken will release juice as it bakes, but if there is a rack between it, the juice will drip down and the chicken will get crispy, rather than soggy. The flavor and texture will be that much better.

Bake the chicken, and add more sauce as desired.

Step 4: Serve warm, and dip in your favorite ranch.

Try our Parmesan Lemon Asparagus or whip up a side of our Best Fresh Spinach Dip, add some carrots, celery, olives and cucumbers and you’re set. I could seriously dip anything in this. It’s amazing.

  1. I used chicken tenders, didn't cut them up because they are already so small, added fresh minced garlic to the marinade, and didn't do the second dipping step (but I did boil the marinating juices down and brushed the cooked tendies as I pulled them out of the oven). 20 min at 350 was fine, they were tasty and juicy! Thanks for the inspiration! We ate them with an arugula cucumber salad and boxed mac and cheese (yasssssss) for a fun summer dinner.
