Fried chicken wings are really popular on Super Bowl Sunday, but today's recipe for buffalo chicken bites has chicken breast meat baked in the oven with a cracker-crumb crust.

Chicken breast meat
2 or 3 eggs
All-purpose flour
Creamy blue cheese dressing
Celery sticks

Ingredients For Wing Sauce:
1/2 cup Louisiana hot sauce
1 stick of butter

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and, before handling the raw chicken, set up a dredging station with some all-purpose flour in one shallow bowl, the beaten eggs in another and some coarsely ground crackers in the third.

Next, cut the chicken breast meat into bite-size pieces and dredge a few at a time first in the flour, then lightly in the beaten egg and finally in the cracker crumbs. Place them onto a oiled baking tray as you go.

Place the tray into the oven and, depending on the size of the chicken pieces, it will take around 15 to 20 minutes to bake. It's a good idea to flip the pieces over halfway through.

At some point, even a little bit ahead of time, make the wing sauce. The simplest version of wing sauce is equal parts Louisiana hot sauce and butter. Gently heat 1/2 cup hot sauce and then slowly whisk in one stick of butter, a little bit at a time. Once it is incorporated, turn the heat off.

Once the chicken is done, place a wooden toothpick into each piece and serve them up on a platter with the wing sauce, creamy blue cheese dressing and celery sticks on the side. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
