Buffalo-Style Chicken Bites

Buffalo-Style Chicken Bites

Ingredients

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

Directions

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

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.

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

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.
