Buffalo Chicken Bites

Inspired by Emily Bites Buffalo Chicken Cupcakes (but not ready for wonton wrappers) and Eggface's famous bites (but, alas, no buffalo chicken recipe), I decided to make my own. They were sooooo yummy! Had quite a kick, so if you choose to make these, you may want to take it easy on the buffalo sauce. I like spice, and I couldn't have done much more. Had I used low-fat cheese, they would have been more healthy, so will try that next time. Scroll down for photos and the nutritional value of the ingredients I specifically used. I will confess that I don't cook much so trust me when I say "if I can do it, you can do it".

Buffalo Chicken Bites (recipe yielded 17 "bites")
5 eggs (if I had to make again would go down to 4 and aim for making a dozen)
2/3 cup canned chicken (I used Trader Joe's canned chicken in water)
1/4 cup Buffalo Wing Sauce (they had a kick, so try less if not your thing)
2 teaspoons Ranch Dressing Seasoning (I don't like blue cheese, but you could play with that)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

350 for 30 minutes

Ranch dipping sauce
Mix 1/2 teaspoon of Ranch Dressing Seasoning per 1 oz (2 tablespoons) of greek yogurt for a tasty topping

Combined ingredients (except cheese) in bowl. Filled mini
muffin tin about half-way and added cheese, then filed to top

Fresh out of the oven. Cooled, then popped out of pan into the freezer
Nutritional facts for the ingredients I used
Chicken Enchilada Bites (recipe yielded 12 "bites")
After the success of the buffalo chicken bites, I thought I'd go another round with chicken enchilada bites. When I make them again, I might actually cut the taco seasoning in half and add more enchilada sauce.

4 eggs
2/3 cup canned chicken (I used Trader Joe's canned chicken in water)
1/4 cup Enchilada Sauce
2 teaspoons Taco Seasoning
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (wish I had used more, and probably gone for low-fat)
Top with greek yogurt

350 for 30 minutes

  2. Tried the chicken bites tonight. They did not disappoint. Even my husband and five year old daughter enjoyed them. Thanks for sharing your recipes.

  3. Hi, just had a gastric sleeve done 2 weeks ago. Is this for the puree level? Both sound amazing.
