Fried Buffalo Chicken Bites

These Buffalo Chicken Dip Bites are right up my alley. I seriously cannot get enough so I try to make every version I can possibly think of. Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches, Buffalo Chicken Enchiladas, Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad, Buffalo Shrimp Tacos, and now Buffalo Chicken Bites.

Deep Fried Buffalo Chicken Dip is fueling my addiction. I have such a love affair with buffalo sauce. One of the first times I wanted to cook was when I wanted to learn how to make buffalo chicken dip for a Super Bowl party.

Annnyway, I have always loved buffalo sauce and these Fried Bites are such a fun twist on a game day favorite.

Spicy Fried Buffalo Chicken Dip 

Buffalo Chicken Dip Bites were inspired by Mozzarella Sticks. I saw Buffalo Chicken Mozzarella Sticks on a FB Tasty video and knew I had to try my hand. I just had to. Mom and I got together and tested out the recipe and these delicious bites were born. We found the sticks to be too big and even after frying still had a frozen center. AMAZING idea but it didn’t quite translate into perfection.

Making these Buffalo Chicken Bites smaller and adding a double batter made them one of the most epic tailgating recipes we have made to date! Crispy outside, molten cheesy inside, buffalo chicken dip and mozzarella stick IN ONE! Obsessed.

How do you make shredded chicken?

I used cooked rotisserie chicken for this recipe, but if you’d prefer to cook and shred your own chicken, it’s easy!

  1. Place your chicken in a skillet or sauce pan and cover with about an inch of water.
  2. Bring to a boil and then reduce to simmer for 10-12 minutes.
  3. When the internal temperature reaches 165°F it’s done!
  4. Remove from water and heat and use two forks to shred.

Then you’re half way there on this recipe!

Can you freeze these?

YES! These would freeze beautifully! Just make sure you seal them very tightly in a container before freezing.
