Buffalo Chicken Bites Recipe – 3 Points +
These Buffalo Chicken Bites are seriously amazing and one of the best Weight Watchers Recipes I’ve ever made. They are a wonderful, much lighter alternative to traditional Buffalo chicken wings, but for a lot less Points. Each serving has just 3 Points +, making this an excellent dish to help you satisfy that Buffalo chicken craving. I like mine super spicy, so I served it with a side of extra Frank’s Red Hot Sauce, but they are also great as is, dipped into a low calorie ranch dressing or low calorie blue cheese dressing. Pair it with some celery for that authentic feel. These were so amazing, that my husband could not believe it was a light recipe. I’ll definitely be adding this to my list of must make Super Bowl Recipes too!
