Buffalo Chicken Fries!

Here's the Dish

These Buffalo Chicken Fries are the perfect combination of spicy, crispy, and gooey goodness thanks to the melted cheese! They would make a great game-day snack, or as a quick and delicious lunch or dinner! This recipe has a great balance of healthy carbs and protein…Not to mention they are ready in under 30 minutes! Score!

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 20-25 minutes.

1

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a sheet pan with foil (for easy clean up) and spray with cooking spray. Cut potatoes into wedges (I microwave them first for 2 minutes so they are a bit easier to cut), and place on baking pan.

Brush potato wedges with the egg white (this will help seasoning to stick, and help them get crispy!) Sprinkle seasoning evenly over potatoes. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until they begin to get lightly golden brown and crisp. When finished baking, remove from the oven (but keep oven on).

Meanwhile, mix the hot sauce and chicken together in a small bowl, and toss to coat. (If you like things spicy, you may add more hot sauce if desired.)

Evenly distribute the chicken/hot sauce mixture over the fries. Top with both cheeses, and return the fries the oven for five minutes, or until cheddar cheese melts. Remove from the oven and top with Greek yogurt and chives/green onions if desired. Enjoy!

These are the bomb! I used reduced fat blue cheese instead of feta(only because it is what I had on hand). Simply amazing!

I made this tonight and it is AMAZING! I’ve been a fan of your site for a couple of years now. Your recipes helped me lose 80 lbs after the birth of my first baby. Now I’m trying to take off baby weight from my second child. Thanks for what you do and keep it up!

I’m not a huge fan of spicy, so I make these using BBQ sauce and they’re amazing. Everyone asks me what I’m having for lunch when I heat this up in the lunch room!
