Buffalo Chicken Bites

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… 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!

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 wills 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.

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.

The secret to this recipe… 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!

In need for some side dishes? 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!
