5 from 1 reviews


  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 2 cups flour
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cups whole wheat panko
  • Olive oil spray
  • 1 bottle buffalo wing sauce (careful, some can be really spicy!!)
  • 3/4 cup reduced fat sour cream
  • 1 packet of dry ranch dressing mix (to taste, may not use whole packet)
  • 45 stalks of celery


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degress
  2. Cut the chicken breasts up into chicken nugget size pieces (about 1-2 inch cubes) and season with salt and pepper
  3. Place your flour, egg, and panko in three separate dishes (baking dishes work well)
  4. Whisk the egg thoroughly
  5. Season the flour and panko with salt and pepper
  6. First, place the chicken in the eggs and toss until evenly coated. Transfer the chicken to the flour and toss until evenly coated. Place the chicken back into the eggs, and toss until evenly coated. Finally, transfer the chicken into the panko and toss until all the chicken pieces are evenly coated in panko
  7. From there, evenly disperse the chicken across two baking sheets that have been sprayed with olive oil liberally
  8. Once all the bites have been dispersed across the baking sheets, spray the tops and sides of the chicken bites liberally with olive oil – they need it to crisp up!!
  9. Make sure they have space and aren’t touching, or else they won’t become as crisp
  10. Place both baking sheets in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through
  11. While the chicken is in the oven, make the ranch dip. Place the sour cream in a bowl, and stir in the dry ranch dressing mix to taste
  12. Slice the celery into small, bite size pieces
  13. When the chicken is done, try one and season to taste with salt
  14. Place the bites in a large bowl and drizzle on buffalo sauce to taste – toss to combine *see note*
  15. To assemble, place a buffalo bite onto a toothpick followed by a piece of celery
  16. You can either drizzle ranch over all the buffalo bites, or set it aside as a dip
  17. **Note: Tossing the bites in buffalo sauce will take away some of the crispness. They are still yummy that way, but if you would like to avoid this, just pour some buffalo sauce in a small bowl and use it as a dip like the ranch**
