Wings and football go hand in hand – but as football season drives on, your game day eats may be in need of a little shaking up. These buffalo chicken bites turn the classic dip into a bite sized popper perfect for your next tailgate or Monday night football party. They’re so tasty they’ll leave you craving football season year-round.

About 20, varies based on size of bites made

3 cups of cooked chicken, shredded
½ cup hot sauce (I used Frank’s Wing Sauce)
½ cup soft cream cheese
2 cups shredded Tillamook Sharp Cheddar
¼ cup finely chopped green onion
1 cup flour
3 eggs
4 cups corn flakes

Preheat oven to 350ºF and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (I used tin foil and the bites got stuck, if you don’t have wax paper handy, sprinkle a layer of cornflakes and bake the bites on top). Combine chicken, cream cheese, hot sauce, cheese, and green onions in a bowl and set aside. Crush cornflakes using a potato masher, mallet, or using your hands (which I did). Once broken into small pieces, set aside in a bowl.

In a separate bowl, beat your eggs and set aside. Then dump your flour into a shallow bowl or dish. Take a spoonful of the chicken and cheese mixture and roll into a small bite-sized ball. Roll each ball into the flour first, then into the beaten eggs, and then coat in corn flakes and set onto baking sheet. Bake your bites for 20-25 minutes, remove from own and let cool for just a minute or two. Serve with ranch (you can make your own using Tillamook Sour Cream) and enjoy!

If you’re looking for an extra kick of flavor, try using Special Reserve Extra Sharp Cheddar or adding diced jalapenos to the mix!
