Buffalo Chicken Bites

Crispy bite-sized boneless chicken with a buffalo-style dipping sauce… Yum!

The key here is to buy good chicken, which is easier said than done these days. Luckily, a market near us sells Miller’s Amish Country Chicken, which is organic, free-range, antibiotic-free, vegetable-fed chicken with no additives.


  • 2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Canola oil (for frying)

For the breading…

  • Bowl #1:  About 1.5-2 cups all-purpose flour, seasoned with your choice of seasonings (I use salt, paprika, cumin, and a bit of cayenne)
  • Bowl #2:  3 eggs, beaten
  • Bowl #3:  Panko bread crumbs (Japanese bread crumbs – but regular bread crumbs would work too)

For the dipping sauce:

  • 1/2 Cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce
  • 1/4 cup (half stick) melted butter


  1. Heat your oil to about 375 degrees
  2. While the oil is heating, cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces and prepare the breading materials in three separate bowls as described above
  3. Dip the chicken in the seasoned flour, then the eggs, then cover with the panko bread crumbs
  4. Drop the chicken gently into the oil and fry until golden brown and cooked through (only takes about 2 minutes if the oil is hot enough and the pieces are bite-sized)
  5. For the sauce, just stir together the Frank’s Red Hot Sauce and the melted butter, then serve!
