Buffalo Chicken Bites

Here's the Dish

Football season is officially upon us, and what goes better with a football game than wings!?! If you like my Skinny Pizza Rolls, watch out…These Buffalo Chicken Bites are just as good, but with a spicy kick!  At just 45 calories a ‘bite’, you can serve these appetizers with confidence knowing that they are guaranteed to be crowd pleasers without throwing off your whole day!


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


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet pan with foil or parchment paper (for easy clean up) and spray with cooking spray.


In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese, hot sauce, mozzarella cheese, and seasoning.


Add the shredded chicken and stir until well combined.


Begin filling the wonton wrappers by placing about a tablespoon of filling in the center of each wrapper. You could use a little more or less, just try not to over-fill them, or the filling will ooze out the sides when you are baking them. To seal them shut, place your finger in the water…Then trace two of the corners with the water.


Fold the wrapper in half to meet the two dry corners with the two wet corners. Press to seal the two sides together. (Note: the water acts like glue to seal the corners shut!)


Continue filling until all of my wonton wrappers are filled. (Note: You may be able to fill even more than 24 wrappers depending on how much filling you use in each one!) When wonton wrappers are filled, give them a light spray with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese over the top of each one if desired.


Lay buffalo chicken bites on prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the tops are lightly golden brown. Enjoy with hot sauce, or light greek yogurt mixed with dry ranch seasoning!


1 cupChicken, cooked and shredded
1/4 cupHot sauce
1/2 cupMozzarella cheese, grated
4 ozFat free cream cheese, microwaved 30 seconds to soften
1/4 tsp Garlic powder
1/4 tsp Onion powder
24 Wonton wrappers
Optional:Additional mozzarella cheese for topping

Katie's Tip!

Make these ahead of time, and bake right before company comes over!

They are in the fresh produce section of the grocery store. They are a little tricky to find!

I made these yesterday and they didn’t get golden like the picture…anything I could have done wrong? I did spray with cooking spray before baking.

They taste great and everyone loved them.

Could you do this with crescent rolls instead of wonton wrappers? And would they cook about the same time?

Dashing Dish said:

yes! :) and maybe about 5 min more on baking time

Super yummy, and crunchy! I used Cholula Original hot sauce. Definitely has a kick to it, but I think the cream cheese helps cool the bites down because I was able to eat them without dipping them in anything (and I usually dip anything “Buffalo” in bleu cheese). Yummy party snack!

My husband’s favorite food is wings, and he loved these! I made a blue cheese dip to go with them out of greek yogurt, low fat blue cheese crumbles, garlic powder and a little hot sauce. Delicious!

I made these today for football Sunday. They are super easy to make and taste delicious! Even though I read a comment about baking with cheese on top, I totally forgot until the first batch was finished. They probably look better with melted cheese on top, but I don’t think they could possibly taste any better! Thank you for this recipe!!

We made these approximately 100 times this holiday season! Such a tasty, savory treat and they are a huge hit no matter who tries them. My husband loves them so much he has started hitting up your blog just to find this recipe so he can make them and have extras in the freezer for Sunday afternoon football games :b

Sooo whenever I make recipes off of websites like this they usually end up terrible. I always attributed it to me being a back cook. But these turned out REALLY GOOD!! My boyfriend is already thinking up ways to tweak it for different flavors.

Thank you for the wonton wrapper trick, these are going to be awesome!

How do these do for a tailgate during the day? Are they still good if they have been chilled or do they get soggy? Will probably be made the night before and put in fridge or may have to be b in cooler during some of the tailgate.

hey jenni, to be honest i’ve never waited until the next day to make them… they are best fresh!

Do you find the wonton wrappers keep moist if you make them the night before. My 3 year old LOVES them and wants them for his birthday party. I’m trying to do as much prep work the night before so all I have to do is pop them in the oven before guests arrive. Thank you!
