So it’s that time of year again and your favorite football team is headed to the championship, but the last thing you want to do is ruin all those hours spent at the gym for one night of greasy pizza, fried wings and beer. I dare you to channel your inner Skinnygirl with this delicious game day-worthy recipe that is sure to make your girlfriends swoon while still keeping those hungry boys happy!
Instead of fried wings that are almost 200 calories per wing, try these baked (not fried) buffalo chicken bites with the same great taste, but half the calories!
- 3 cups shredded cooked chicken
- 1/3 cup favorite hot sauce
- 3.5 oz. fat-free cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 3 cups Corn Flakes cereal, crushed
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine shredded chicken, hot sauce and cream cheese; mix well. Stir in cheese and green onions and set aside. Using 3 separate bowls, set out the flour, eggs and crushed cereal. Scoop out chicken mixture and make 1 1/2-inch balls, first rolling in flour, then dipping in egg, and last coating with cereal. Repeat this until you have about 30 balls.
Place balls on sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden. Serve with light blue cheese or ranch dressing and enjoy! Makes 10 servings.
