2 Ingredient Buffalo Chicken Bites

We threw an impromptu Seahawks get together yesterday, and I had to come up with some easy appetizers to serve at the last minute. I love to order my chicken online through Perdue Farms, for cost effective, high quality products, and their popcorn chicken is my favorite! Buffalo chicken wings are a favorite for game time at our house, but I did not have time to thaw wings, and then fry them all up, so I used the Perdue Farm Popcorn Chicken to make a super quick and easy version of Buffalo Chicken Wings. This dish is budget friendly, as it only requires two ingredients, but no one has to know how easy they are if you serve them in a pretty dish!

The best part was that I could use half of the chicken to serve plain with dipping sauces for the kids, and everyone was happy!

If you put the Buffalo Chicken bites into small serving dishes, they will really stretch to feed a crowd too. I had these mini martini glasses that my husband got me for Christmas. They fit three bites plus a celery stick (and serve with a side of ranch), and it makes a great single serve size if you are serving with other dishes.

If you don’t have small glass dishes, you can also easily serve in a clear plastic cup (we got these at the $1 store). If your tailgating, this is a great way to dish them up and throw in a cooler. They are great chilled too, and just add a dollop of ranch right in the cup.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Bag of Perdue Farms Popcorn Chicken (could use the chicken strips too)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of Franks Red Hot Buffalo Sauce (or your preferred buffalo sauce)

Optional – ranch dip and celery or carrots to serve with it.

To make the Buffalo Popcorn Chicken follow these three easy steps:

#1 – Bake the Popcorn Chicken according to to the instructions on the bag (cook it directly from the freezer, making it perfect for last minute get together).

#2 – Add approximately 1/4 cup of Franks Red Hot Buffalo Hot Sauce (or your favorite Buffalo Sauce) to the pan (more or less depending on your taste). Toss until all pieces of the popcorn chicken are coated.

**note – it does seem to be spicier then your typical chicken wings as the sauce really absorbs into the chickens coating. I would start out going lighter on the sauce and add more later if you feel you need extra flavor)

#3 – Place it back in the oven and cook for 5 more minutes to let the sauce saturate the chicken, and set (so it goes from the liquid consistency, to set into the chicken like step 3 above).

Serve with celery and ranch dip (to cool it down). You can add less sauce if you do not like it too spicy).  If you have kids at your get together either cook up a second bag, or divide your bag in half and serve the kids the popcorn chicken with no buffalo sauce. You can then serve theirs with a small bowl of ketchup, BBQ sauce and ranch dip so they have plenty of dipping options. This is a super easy way to have something to serve for everyone!

  1. I eat the buffalo and hot and spicy plain, maybe with some rice. On the other breaded varieties, I eat them with mashed potatoes and country gravy.

  2. With homemade tartar sauce for dipping – but we may have to try the buffalo sauce, it sounds yummy!

  3. I’ve never used the cooked chicken but I always have a bag of Foster Farms chicken in my freezer. Sandwiches, salads, baked, and grilled.

  4. Commented on FB that I will be trying your recipe for next week’s wild card games :)

  5. I like to cook up the strips, cut them up and put them over a salad with blue cheese for buffalo blue cheese salad. Or BBQ chicken salad.

  6. I subscribe to your email and admit that when I use this chicken, I’m just tossing it in the oven to add to a salad or eat “as is.” Lazy, I know, but it’s the truth :)
