Boneless Buffalo Chicken Bites (Wings)

 Who doesn’t love a good hot wing? I love hot wings, the tangy hot sauce that is drenching a chicken wing is so hard to beat. The only annoyance is the bone that you have to deal with. These boneless buffalo chicken bites or wings means don’t have those bones to slow you down. Enjoy all of the goodness of a wing without the bones.

These boneless buffalo chicken bites have a crispy full flavor batter. They are battered carefully and then deep-fried in canola or another type of vegetable oil for some very tasty boneless wings.

The sauce is made simply with butter and hot sauce. Personally, I love Frank’s Red Hot Sauce the best. It is spicy and full of flavor.

I simply cut up a couple of chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces for this boneless buffalo chicken bites recipe. You don’t need to go out and buy expensive already cut up chicken.

I bet this would also be tasty with boneless thigh meat as well to help save a few extra dollars. Be sure to serve this up with plenty of blue cheese dressing or ranch dressing to take away the heat.
