Buffalo Chicken Potato Bites

Bite size loaded potato skins, stuffed with a creamy and spicy buffalo chicken filling. A perfect game day snack!

Buffalo Chicken Potato Bites Recipe from @bakedbyrachel The perfect game day snack!

I’ve been talking a lot about Fall lately. The weather getting cooler, the leaves starting to turn and so much more. But there’s one thing I haven’t touched upon yet. Football.

If you hadn’t noticed, football season is here. And with that comes the need and desire for comforting tailgating food. Whether you’re at the game or just cheering for your favorite team from the comfort of your home, having the right food is always essential. Bad take-out can surely spoil the mood of the party. So, I’ve got you covered with a brand new, mouth watering recipe.

Buffalo Chicken Potato Bites Recipe from @bakedbyrachel The perfect game day snack!

I’m a huge fan of playing around with PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese and Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wing sauce. Like apples and caramel, cream cheese and buffalo sauce are a match made in heaven. It’s a classic combination and one I clearly love, as I’ve shared many recipes with that pairing already. But what’s one more, right? There is always room for more.

Since it’s football season, I knew easy finger food would be preferable. Who wants to sit down to the table in the middle of a game? Bite size potato bites are ideal party food! They’re stuffed to the brim with a creamy and spicy buffalo chicken mixture, topped off with a layer of cheese and garnished with pepper and green onions.

These are sure to disappear quickly, so grab some while you can! They were a big hit in my house! And I’m sure they will be in yours too!

Buffalo Chicken Potato Bites

Bite size loaded potato skins, stuffed with a creamy and spicy buffalo chicken filling.

Ingredients:

  • 1lb Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 2-3 tsp olive oil
  • 1C chicken, shredded
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp celery, diced
  • 3oz PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened
  • 1/4C Franks RedHot Buffalo Wing sauce
  • 1/4C blue cheese crumbles
  • 1/2C Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • Green onions, chopped

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet with olive oil.
  2. In a large bowl, toss potatoes with olive oil, coating well. Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes or until fork tender.
  3. Remove potatoes from baking sheet, allowing them to rest until cool enough to handle.
  4. Increase oven temperature to 425°F.
  5. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine shredded chicken with salt, pepper, celery and cream cheese. Stir with a wooden spoon or combine with your hands. Mix in buffalo sauce, coating mixture completely. Finally stir in blue cheese crumbles. Set aside.
  6. With a sharp knife, carefully slice off the top of each potato. Hollow out potatoes with a melon baller or small spoon, being careful to not rip through the potatoes edge. Fill with buffalo chicken mixture and sprinkle with Monterey Jack cheese.
  7. Bake for an additional 10 minutes or until potatoes are heated through and cheese is fully melted. Garnish with a sprinkle of ground black pepper and chopped green onions.
  8. Serve immediately.

    This is why I love football season. I’m not a football lover, but the food makes me excited!! And Frank’s Red Hot and Philadelphia cream cheese are a match made in heaven!

    These look scrumptious! Are they super spicy? I may have to cut down the Frank’s if that is the case. I love spicy, but my family doesn’t. In any case, looks like a fantastic recipe – thanks!!

    • Rachel — September 19th, 2014 @ 6:28 pm

      I wouldn’t say they’re overly spicy but you can always cut back on it a bit just to be sure it isn’t too over the top.

    Yum! I made something similar (yet totally different – haha) around this time last year and they were a huge hit. Next time, I’ll have to try your filling… I bet the cream cheese makes it insanely delicious!

    Have you experimented at all with making these in advance? I was thinking of cooking and coring the potatoes and mixing the filler a few days ahead, refrigerating or freezing and then filling/baking the day of. Any suggestions?

    • Rachel — November 7th, 2014 @ 7:40 am

      I have not, but you’re welcome to try!
