Guiltless Buffalo Chicken Bites

Every time my husband and I go shopping, a bag of those frozen buffalo chicken bites sneaks its way into our cart. Then, over the course of about 2 or 3 days, the bag goes from being full in the freezer to being empty in the trash can. Do I ever get any? Nope. There are a couple reasons. First, my husband loves them so by the time I remember they’re in the freezer they’re usually gone. Second, if I do remember they’re there, I take one look at the nutrition content on the back of the bag and decide against them (even though I have an obsession with buffalo chicken anything). I make chicken nuggets a few days back, so I decided I’d try to make buffalo chicken bites. I’m please to announce that it was a major success!

A serving of frozen buffalo chicken bites is 3 pieces. THREE PIECES. That’s like, maybe half a chicken breast…if you take the 3 biggest pieces from the bag. That serving is 150 calories, 7 grams of fat, 12 grams of protein, and I can’t even promise you that it’s chicken. This recipe is much better for you, and gives you way more food.

I paired this with some homemade French fries but you can serve it with whatever you’d like! This would be great for appetizers at a Superbowl party or tailgating event! You don’t even have to tell anyone it’s healthy ;) The way I cut the chicken (nugget sized pieces) it made 10-12 bites per serving!
