Boneless Buffalo Chicken Bites Recipe

Have you ever had buffalo chicken bites? If you have not – you are REALLY missing out on something

I personally love a good hot wing BUT I hate the bones. A couple weeks ago my husband and I went to Applebee’s. When I told my dad we went there he asked “was it horrible” ( that is my dad for you ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

The answer was yes

But that is not the point.

There are 2 reasons why we went – 1) There are almost no “chain” restaurants in Portland OR ( Chili’s or TGI Friday and the list goes on)

2) I remembered that they had boneless chicken bites as an appetizer that my mom and I use to share ( because they are not gluten – free friendly I did not have them)

BUT the whole experience inspired this recipe because I wanted to try and make them at home and give y’all a gluten – free alternative

Whew. I am glad you liked that story and now onto the recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

Boneless Buffalo Chicken Bites Recipe

I do not want to say this is a copy cat recipe since I have not had the Applebee’s version in 12 years and my dad will not go to one – BUT I will say my whole family loved these bites ๐Ÿ™‚ My husband ate everything on the blue plate above in one sitting

To make this dish gluten – free simply use gluten – free flour instead of whole wheat – they are interchangeable

You can also use almond milk for this recipe as well

I did fry these bites – you can bake them at 350 for 15 – 25 minutes – do whatever method floats your boat

Here are some pictures of the final product ๐Ÿ™‚
