The perfect, Chirothin-approved snack for winter gatherings and watching football! If you’re a fan of spicy and crispy chicken, then this Boneless Buffalo Chicken Bites recipe is perfect for you. These delectable morsels are marinated, coated with a flavorful spice mix, and baked to perfection before being generously drizzled with Frank’s Red-Hot Sauce. Let’s dive into the details of this mouthwatering dish!
- 4 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized cubes
- 1 1/2 cups water or organic chicken broth (or a combination of both)
- Cayenne pepper, garlic powder, sea salt, and chili powder for seasoning
- Frank’s Red-Hot Sauce for that signature buffalo kick
- Optional sides: celery sticks or a bed of chopped romaine lettuce for serving
- In a bowl, create a flavorful marinade by combining water/chicken broth, a pinch of cayenne pepper, a dash of garlic powder, and a pinch of sea salt. Adjust the seasoning to your preferred spice level.
- Place the bite-sized chicken cubes into a large plastic bag and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag and refrigerate for 1-2 hours to allow the flavors to infuse.
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- On a plate, spread out some chili powder. Remove the marinated chicken from the bag and gently roll each cube in the chili powder to coat them evenly.
- Set a wire rack over a casserole dish. This arrangement allows any drippings from the baking chicken to collect in the dish, keeping the bites crispy.
- Arrange the chili powder-coated chicken on the wire rack and place it in the preheated oven.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, turning the chicken cubes halfway through to ensure even cooking. They should turn golden brown and crispy.
- Once done, remove the chicken from the oven and immediately drizzle with the iconic Frank’s Red-Hot Sauce. Adjust the amount to suit your spice preference.
- Serve your Boneless Buffalo Chicken Bites hot with refreshing celery sticks or atop a bed of crisp romaine lettuce.
