Mistakes Were Made: Buffalo Chicken Bites

I was pan-frying some chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces, and added a bit of barbeque sauce for a quick dinner.  I wanted to spice things up, so I grabbed the wing sauce, meaning to add a couple of squirts.

Only problem, it was not a squeeze bottle! Much like forgetting your spice container did not have a shaker top and dumping an entire container of cayenne in a dish, I managed to add at least a 1/4 cup or more of wing sauce to my skillet.  My lightly coated barbeque chicken turned into hot wing sauce chicken. So I went all the way and used this recipe:

Skillet Buffalo Chicken Bites

  • 1 lb boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • extra light olive oil
  • 1 cup potato starch
  • 1/4 tsp of each:
    • salt & pepper
    • garlic powder
    • cayenne pepper
    • adobo seasoning
  • buffalo wing sauce
  • bleu cheese or ranch dressing


Lightly coat chicken pieces in oil.  Add spices to potato starch and mix well.

Heat 2 tbsp of oil in skillet. Dredge chicken pieces in spiced potato starch mixture and add to hot oil. Reduce heat to medium. Flip the chicken pieces as they brown. Once they are browned on all sides, reduce heat. Add buffalo wing sauce and stir until all the pieces are coated. Let simmer on low for 5 minutes.

Serve with bleu cheese or ranch dressing.

You can serve with Garlic Mashed potatoes or over lettuce (as I did).
