Anyway, I was *planning* to bring food to each event, until I had a liiiiiitle too much fun on the first night and ended up scratching every activitiy on Saturday. Oops. In any event, my logic was that instead of making a bunch of different appetizers, I would make one batter bowl-ful of Elina's Chicken Buffalo Bites and then before each party, fill 24 mini-muffin bite sized snacks to bring along. Great idea in theory... and it worked great for the 4/7 parites I made it to.
I love love this recipe because it's so darn tricky. It tastes like you're eating fat football food, but really its 100% greek yogurt (all protein, no fat) and chicken with some spices. Okay and some cheese. Elina doesn't add cheese to hers and she's right, you don't totally need it. But I need it!! I love cheese too much! Add as much or as little as you want and it won't affect the overall taste.
Elina's Buffalo Chicken Bites
(this makes a TON, so halve this for a more modest amount of the bites. BUT keep in mind, whatever's left, you can throw in a dish in the oven and serve as a dip with torn bread or celery sticks. Freezes well too.)
2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1/2 cup Red Hot
14 oz 0% Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt
2 handfuls of Shredded Cheddar/Mexican Blend (Elina doesn't do this, but the thought of not makes me sad)
1 package Dry Ranch Seasoning (use a full package no matter how much you make)
Grands Jr. Flaky Layers Biscuits
Just add the yogurt, ranch, hot sauce and cheese in a bowl and mix well.
Put a thin layer of the biscuits into the bottom of each pan and press down.
Chicken 5 minutes in the microwave in my Deep Covered Baker then chopped in 2 seconds with Salad Choppers. I know you're jealous if you had to bake and then two-fork shred your chicken!!
