Buffalo chicken bites with blue cheese dip

Buffolo chicken is such a crowd pleaser, I am however not a wings girl. I prefer filet bites. Chicken is tricky as you want to make sure it turns out nice and tender. Nothing is worse than dry chicken. That’s why marinating chicken in buttermilk is such a game changer for me. Batman has Robin, Snoopy has Charlie Brown and buffalo chicken has blue cheese dressing. So to make a great dish perfect, make a homemade dressing and don’t forget to check out my taste on homemade buffalo sauce as well.

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1,5 cups of buttermilk
  • ½ cup of flour
  • Buffalo wing sauce (click here for my homemade recipe)
  • ½ cup of mayonnaise
  • ½ cup of crumbled blue cheese
  • ¼ cup of sour cream
  • ½ cup of buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon of white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of mustard
  • ½ teaspoon of garlic powder

My preparation of this dish already starts the day before. Cut the chicken filet into smaller pieces. Then place them in a bowl. Cover the entire chicken bits with buttermilk and leave it in the fridge overnight. Thereby you ensure that the meat will be super juicy and extra tender.

The next day, preheat the oven at 200 degrees Celsius/400 degrees Fahrenheit and then remove the buttermilk from the bowl and pour the flour over the chicken. Make sure to cover all the bites with it. Lay the filet on a baking tray and place it in the oven. After 8 minutes turn the chicken and bake it for another 7 minutes. Pour the chicken in a bowl and mix it with buffalo sauce. Then put the chicken back in the oven for 5 minutes.

For the blue cheese dressing wisk the mayonnaise with the cream, the buttermilk, the vinegar, the mustard and the garlic. When everything is blended well, add the blue cheese. Stir until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Spice with salt and pepper.
