Mess free, boneless buffalo chicken bites. Perfect with fries or as a football party appetizer!
I don’t entertain nearly as much as I’d like, but these buffalo bites are easy to whip up and are a great alternative to the traditional wing. I haven’t met one person who doesn’t like chicken, not that I was looking or anything. I said that to say this: Chicken is almost, always at any and every party. It’s on the cheaper side and can be prepared in almost anyway imaginable.
I thought of this recipe while making Crafty Morning’s 3-Ingredient Orange Chicken Sauce recipe. It was delicious and went well with brown rice and green beans, as does most Asian inspired recipes. While eating it I couldn’t help but think that this would be a nice appetizer at a home football party if it had buffalo sauce on it topped with blue cheese and dipped in ranch dressing.
My husband was in love with the idea and couldn’t wait to try it, therefore, I had to hurry and make it that week for dinner. 🙂 It was perfect and mess free. So much better than the messy fingers that come with eating wings! This recipe is definitely one for the book.
- 1-2 lbs chicken breast
- salt & pepper to taste
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- vegetable oil
- 1 cup buffalo sauce
- 1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
- Ranch dressing for dipping
- In a skillet, heat about 1 inch of oil on med/high heat while prepping chicken.
- Wash and dice chicken into 1 inch pieces and season with your choice of spices.
- In a small bowl, stir together eggs and set aside. In a medium bowl, mix together flour and cornstarch and set aside.
- Dip chicken into eggs and then into flour mixture in groups of 4-5 pieces. Once all chicken is coated evenly, drop chicken into grease and cook for about 5-10 minutes making sure to flip over meat at least once.
- Remove from grease with a splotted spoon and onto a towel lined plate so that the towel soaks up the excess grease.
- Once chicken has cooled for about 5 min, transfer fried chicken to a medium bowl and toss with buffalo sauce. Serve on plate with bluecheese sprinkled on top and ranch dressing as a dipping sauce.
