Baked Buffalo Chicken Bites

We had a little Friday night tailgate dinner party tonight. I was so anxious to try out these bites I couldn't wait until Sunday to make them. The cornflake crumbs give the outside a nice crust and the inside is so creamy and delicious with the bite of buffalo. Next time I make these I will make them smaller and freeze half of them (before baking) so we will have them handy. They were time consuming, so tonight I made them bigger than a "bite," but they were still amazing!


3 cups shredded cooked chicken
1/2 cup hot sauce - we use Franks Red Hot
4 ounces fat free cream cheese, softened
1 3/4 cups sharp shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup chopped green onions (optional)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp cracked black pepper
4 eggs, lightly beaten
3 – 4 cups Corn Flakes cereal, crushed

Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, cream cheese and hot sauce, cheddar cheese and green onions.
Roll a heaping tablespoon of mixture into a 1½-inch ball and place onto a plate or separate baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
Place flour in a shallow dish, season with pepper and garlic powder.
In a second shallow dish, place eggs.
In a third shallow dish, place corn flakes.
Dip each chicken ball first into the flour, then 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 blue cheese dressing.
