Buffalo-Style Chicken Bites in a New Light

Recipe Courtesy  A Diabetes in a New Light




  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat blue cheese crumbles
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound ground chicken breast
  • 1 small red bell pepper, minced
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium bottled hot pepper sauce
  • 2 tablespoons plain dry whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 1/2 cups celery sticks
  • 2 1/2 cups carrot sticks




1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Spray a large baking pan with cooking spray.

2. To make the dressing, combine mayonnaise, sour cream, blue cheese, lemon juice, and pepper in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate to allow the flavors to blend, about 15 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, combine ground chicken, bell pepper, 2 tablespoons hot pepper sauce, bread crumbs, shallot, garlic, and salt in a large bowl until well mixed.

4. With lightly moistened hands, form the mixture into 30 (1 1/4-inch) balls. Place on the baking sheet. Bake until meatballs are lightly browned and cooked through, 12 – 15 minutes.

5. Transfer meatballs to a large bowl. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce and gently toss until coated. Serve with the dressing, celery and carrot sticks.

    These sound yummy, it is like buffalo wing meatballs.
    I like ranch dip with mine. I enjoy Chef Bryan. I think it would be awesome to have a job working for you.
