Buffalo Chicken Bites

Posted on

My friend, Tiffani, made these buffalo chicken bites from pinterest and she told me they were to die for. She said they were easy and not totally killer, as in unhealthy, for you so it was a must-make in my book. Joe said this was his favorite recipe I have made so far and that’s saying a lot. I realized the reason he liked them so much was because they had meat in them! I wasn’t eating meat for almost a year and a few months ago my body started craving it and I mean really craving it. That’s all I could think about was meat. I figured my body was telling me something and I incorporated meat back into my diet a little at a time. I would say, we still eat a lot of vegetarian meals but we have meat on average twice a week – Joe sometimes more. This was one of our meaty meals for the week…Buffalo Chicken Bites
