Buffalo Chicken Bites

These little bites are the perfect finger food.  And they will be perfect for football season.  Surely, I'm not the only one excited about football season....right?  We are dire hard Arkansas Razorback fans in this house.  I was born and raised in Arkansas, my Dad has had season tickets to the games since I was a child.  He used to tell me that he'd disown me if I supported any other college team...especially one in the SEC.  He was probably kidding don't ya think?  Lucky for him I'm a loyal fan.

Enough about football and more about food.  That's why your here, after all. Like I said these are the perfect finger food and are great served with ranch dressing for dipping.

Let's Get Started:

Buffalo Chicken Bites

2 boneless, skinless, cooked and shredded chicken breast
1/2 cup of Buffalo Sauce (I recommend Frank's-use more or less to suit your taste)
4 ounces of cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (or whatever you prefer)
1 pie crust (I used a refrigerated pre-made)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a small saucepan add shredded chicken, buffalo sauce, and cream cheese.  Heat of low heat until the cream cheese is completely melted.  Stirring occasionally.  Add sour cream and cheddar cheese.

Using a floured rim glass, cut circles out of pie crust and set aside.  Roll out remaining dough to make additional circles.

Of course I used a Razorback glass to show my support!!

Add about a tablespoon of your buffalo chicken mixture to one side of each cut out circle, leaving enough room on the edges to seal.  Sprinkle with blue cheese.  Fold over, seal edges with a fork.

Bake for 20-25 minutes.  Serve with ranch or blue cheese salad dressing.


  1. Since I'm from Chicago but have moved south, I've learned that the word football means something much different down here than up there. For us, football means the Bears, Packers and Vikings. Down here it means the Razorbacks, Crimson Tide, the Gators. :)

    Your chicken bites definitely will be added to the list of football party food.

  2. Yum! Everybody is pumped for football to return! I just read a post on Dees Delights about nacho dip, can't wait :)

  3. Oh, my husband would LOVE these. He's such a buffalo chicken junkie! These look perfect for a football party! :)

  4. These looks yummy! I love the spicy hot sauce mixed with the cream cheese... TOUCHDOWN! You will score big with these. My hubby is a big football fan and I'm sure to make him a happy camper if I make these for his next football game.

  5. Yeah, try growing up partly in Indiana (where Colts fans are everywhere) and being a Philadelphia Eagles fan. lol

    These look like perfect football party snacks for sure!
