3 Dairy-Free and Paleo Buffalo Chicken Appetizers

3 Dairy-Free Buffalo Chicken Game Day Snacks

We’ve got five words for you: buffalo chicken Super Bowl party. Honestly, if we only ate buffalo chicken for the rest of our lives we’d have zero complaints. But since we have to be responsible adults and eat vegetables sometimes, we limit our 100 percent buffalo chicken diet to just one day a year, Super Bowl Sunday.

Of course, dairy-free buffalo chicken dip is a must for us. Fortunately, it’s surprisingly easy to sub out the cheese for paleo mayo without sacrificing the classic flavor or creamy texture. Dairy-free and gluten-free buffalo chicken pizza is equally simple to pull off—we use our grain-free English muffins for the crusts and a plant-based mozzarella. Or make it even easier on yourself and serve up some Buffalo Chicken Pockets cut into bite-sized pieces!

4. Spread ½ tablespoon of sauce in the center of each English muffin half.
5. Evenly spread the chicken mixture on top of each muffin.
6. Top each muffin with sliced red onions, peppers and mozzarella.
7. Arrange muffins on a nonstick baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
8. Top pizzas with cilantro.
9. Cut in to bite-sized slices before serving, if desired.

Mikey’s Buffalo Chicken Pocket Bites

It’s true we usually have Mikey’s pockets for a quick on-the-go lunch, but they’re equally handy for easy party snacks. Our new spicy Buffalo Chicken Grain-Free Pockets are our favorite to serve when friends come over to watch the game.

Here’s what to do:

Set your oven to 350 F and pop in a tray of pockets for 18-22 minutes. When they’re done cooking, let them rest for 5 minutes, then cut each pocket into four slices. Serve and enjoy!
