Skinny Buffalo Bites with hot sauce

I love anything buffalo chicken flavored and after making this recipe for Skinny Buffalo Chicken Bites, I have found my new go-to appetizer! It tastes just like the dip, but this recipe is chip-free! The breadcrumbs create the crunch that the chips would add otherwise.

I always have cooked shredded chicken on hand. I just purchase the chicken in bulk and cook 4-5 chicken breasts in the slow cooker at the start of the week, so this recipe took me less than 10 minutes to put together. Modify the amount of hot sauce and the brand depending on how hot you’re willing to go. These spicy little bites will be a big hit at your next party!
