Low-Carb Snacks – Buffalo chicken bites

Posted by 4love2love on June 29, 2011

Preparation time: 25 minutes (includes baking time)

Buffalo chicken bites
Cooking spray
1 pound cooked chicken breasts, cut into bite-size chunks
1/2 cup red hot sauce (such as Frank’s Red Hot Sauce)
3 tablespoons melted, reduced-calorie margarine
2 teaspoons dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Celery sticks
Reduced-fat ranch or blue cheese salad dressing (I prefer no salad dressing or an oil-based dressing)Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a baking dish with cooking spray, and place chicken bites in the baking dish. In a bowl, combine Red Hot sauce, margarine, parsley, and garlic powder. Pour evenly over chicken. (If you wish, you can refrigerate the combined chicken and sauce until you are ready to heat and serve.) Bake for 20 minutes. Put a toothpick in each piece of chicken and place on serving tray. Serve with celery sticks and salad dressing.

Yield: 42 pieces
Serving size: 7 pieces

    My human loves hot things like this – I’ll pass this along and watch him smoke as he eats them!

      LOL!!! Well you should tell your human to make some of my fire stew. They can even add more peppers or use a different type of pepper to make it even hotter than my recipe is set up for. 😉
