    Crispy Buffalo Chicken Bites

    I’ve been kind of on a fry-all-the-things kick lately (healthfully, of course). Not really awesome for my Jamaica beach body I’m working towards but I mean, healthy fried chicken bites that aren’t dry and that are crispy, flavorful, and gluten-free, grain-free, and nut-free? I. Just. Can’t. Stop.Crispy Buffalo Chicken Bites

    This week for Foodie Friday with American Express let me introduce you to your new appetizer, snack, or chicken dinner that nobody will guess is completely allergy-free!

    You can really coat this chicken in any sauce you’d like, but I always am a buffalo fan! My next move… chop the chicken bites up and turn them into a buffalo chicken pizza. Clearly the perfect use of this chicken!

    Guilt-free fried chicken bites for the win!

    These Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potato Skins are so creamy, flavorful and delicious! Omit the cheese to make these Whole30 compliant and paleo-friendly!

    Healthy Buffalo Chicken Sweet Potato Skins | Lexi's Clean Kitchen

    Potato skins have always been a staple (delicious, yet not the healthiest) whether an appetizer at a bar/restaurant or making for friends at a Superbowl or March Madness party. This healthy version is delicious and packed with nutrients. You can adapt these even more to the real thing (if you are so inclined) by throwing in some nitrate-free bacon and topping with melted cheese!

    Ingredients

    Instructions

    1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees °F.
    2. Pierce sweet potato with a fork, and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 30 minutes, or until soft.
    3. While the sweet potato is baking, saute onions, carrots, garlic, and scallions for 2-3 minutes, or until the onions turn translucent. Add in spinach and cook just until the spinach starts to wilt. Remove from heat, let cool, and place in a medium mixing bowl.
    4. Add shredded chicken, mayonnaise, hot sauce, and pepper to the sauted vegetables and mix well. Taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
    5. Once sweet potatoes are soft, carefully cut sweet potatoes in half and scoop out insides to make “boats.” Leave about 1/4 – 1/2 inch of flesh so they don’t become too fragile and difficult to handle.
      Set oven to a high broil.
    6. Fill the sweet potatoes with a heaping spoonful of shredded buffalo chicken. Top with cheddar cheese and broil for 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is fully melted. Serve hot!
