Recipes Tips

If you want to make this recipe even healthier, you can use ground turkey instead of ground chicken for a leaner protein source. You can also use Greek yogurt instead of sour cream for the dip to reduce the amount of fat and calories. Additionally, you can serve the buffalo chicken with celery sticks or carrot sticks instead of chips for a healthier snack option.

Another tip is to make a double batch of the buffalo chicken mixture and freeze it for later use. This way, you can have a quick and easy meal ready to go whenever you're in a rush.

Lastly, if you're looking for a vegetarian option, you can substitute the chicken with tofu or tempeh and use a vegan buffalo sauce. This will give you a similar flavor without the meat.
