Buffalo Chicken Bites

It has been a very stressful week so far.  Cally went for an overnight visit to Mount Union Monday and Tuesday.  Well she figured one thing out for sure, she is not going to Mount Union.  Here we thought she had it all figured out, she was going to Mount Union and was going to play on the Women's golf team.  Now she is not wanting to play golf and is back to thinking she might go to Shawnee State.  From one end of the state to the other.  I guess she will figure it all out eventually.

I found this recipe for Buffalo Chicken Bites on Pinterest.  I just love that website!  There are so many neat things to look at.  I like these chicken bites because they are baked but still crispy and tasting like they were fried.  Another plus for me is I cheated and bought a rotisserie chicken and shredded it.  Bill and Billy eat them just plain like they are but I dip mine in bleu cheese dressing.  The corn flake crust is really crunchy and gives it a nice breading taste.

the orange color you see is Frank's Hot Sauce, and oh is it soooooo gooooood !!

Buffalo Chicken Bites
adapted from: Sweet Pea's Kitchen

3 C shredded cooked chicken ( I used a whole rotisserie chicken, shredded)
1/2 C Frank's Hot Sauce
4 oz cream cheese
2 C shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 t onion powder (you can use chopped onion if you prefer)
1 C flour
4 eggs, slightly beaten
3 to 4 C crushed corn flakes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.  In a large bowl, combine chicken, cream cheese, hot sauce, cheddar cheese and onion powder.  Roll a heaping tablespoon of the mixture into a 1 1/2 inch ball and place onto a plate or separate baking sheet.  Repeat with the remaining mixture.  Place flour in a shallow dish.  In a second shallow dish, place eggs.  In a  third shallow dish place the corn flakes.  Dip each chicken ball first into the flour, then into the egg, and ending with the corn flakes.  Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes.  Serve warm with ranch or bleu cheese dressing if you desire.
