I like to used chicken breasts for this buffalo chicken bite recipe, but you can also use chicken breast tenderloins or chicken thighs. Just be sure to cut them into even sized bite sized pieces.
You can make this recipe dairy free by substituting the butter for a plant based butter substitute. You can also make this boneless buffalo wing recipe vegetarian by replacing the chicken breast pieces with cubes of tofu. It is best to use extra firm tofu so that it does not crumble when it is breaded.
How to make Buffalo Chicken Bites
First, cut some boneless skinless chicken breast into cubes. Then, simply bread them with an egg wash, almond flour, salt, and pepper.
Next, place the breaded chicken bites on a baking sheet in an even layer. Bake the bites for 25 minutes at 350F. I always bake on a baking sheet lined with parchment for easier clean up.
Then, toss the baked bites in a butter and hot sauce mixture. If you want to make Whole30 buffalo chicken bites, just sub the butter for some ghee.
Serve the bites however you would like! I like mine on a salad with cucumbers and ranch dressing. I always use my homemade ranch dressing recipe.
These bites are also perfect as an appetizer on a toothpick with some blue cheese or ranch dipping sauces.
Storage and Reheating
These buffalo chicken bites are best if enjoyed immediately. If you have leftovers, store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Reheat in the oven or toaster oven to keep these buffalo chicken breast bites crispy.
