Allergy Friendly Homemade Buffalo Chicken Bites

You have heard of the popular chicken wings called Buffalo Wings. They originate from a small restaurant in Buffalo, New York, thus the name. They were invented accidentally by the chef of the restaurant.

I have used it as a basis for my homemade, allergy friendly, dairy free & gluten free Buffalo Chicken Bites recipe. It is a very easy and tasty dish to make. This is one of my children's favorite appetizers that they often eat as their main meal.

In this recipe I have changed things up a bit to make it allergy friendly for us

  • Instead of the wings I used boneless and skinless chicken cubes.
  • Coated the chicken with gluten free flour to give some crunch.
  • The sauce was made from scratch for coating the chicken.
  • Instead of using the Frank's hot sauce as in the original recipe I have used Piri Piri sauce as the hot sauce contains vinegar which is a no go for us.

Marinate the chicken at least for 30 minutes, for the chicken to absorb the flavors. For the sauce I use the pasta sauce I have at home. Serve on their own or with fries. Can also be enjoyed with my homemade wedges and a salad.
