So with the Stanley Cup Finals fully underway and Football season looming in the horizon, it’s high time we get up to scratch on our bar food basics, to ensure smooth sailing into this year’s sporting season. First up are these tasty little buffalo chicken bites. With all the perks of traditional buffalo wings but none of the mess, these babies are a guaranteed party favorite!
And in terms of keeping your waistline in mind, these little bites are baked and not fried for guilt free (more or less) indulgence all season long.
3 cups shredded cooked chicken
1/4 to 1/2 cup hot sauce (to taste)
3 1/2 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 3/4 cups sharp shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup chopped green onions
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 – 4 cups Corn Flakes cereal, crushed
Directions:Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or tin foil. In a large bowl, combine chicken, cream cheese, hot sauce, cheddar cheese and green onions. Roll a heaping tablespoon of mixture into a 2-inch ball and place onto a plate or separate baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining mixture. Place flour in a shallow dish. In a second shallow dish, place eggs. In a third shallow dish, Place cornflakes. Dip each chicken ball first into the flour, then the egg and ending with the Corn Flakes. Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm with blue cheese dressing (this one is THE BEST!).
