When you’re starting or living on a low-carb diet, snacks and appetizers is often the biggest hurdle to overcome. Almost everything is laden with sugars and carbs, limiting your options when you’re ready for some appetite-satisfying bites. That’s why we started working on more recipes to solve that. After the success of the surprising combination of pickles & tuna in this recipe, we decided we wanted to explore more ways of serving up low-carb snacks. With the rising growth of individuals trying out that Ketogenic diet, it’s awesome when you find just another amazing snack option to get you through. Thought you were going to miss carbs? Think again. These buffalo chicken bites will have you craving nothing more, than just more of these bites!

Servings: 12-18
Prep Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 bag mini sweet peppers, seeded & halved
  • 2 cans shredded chicken (leftover rotisserie chicken can also be used)
  • 1/4 cup mayo (we used a sugar free variety)
  • 3 tbsp buffalo wing sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/4 cup Green onions, diced

Method

  • Once you have all your mini sweet peppers cut in half, and seeded, line them up on a plate, ready for loading up!
  • Mix your chicken, mayo & buffalo wing sauce together. Spoon into the pepper boats!
  • Enjoy as is - or level up! Place all the buffalo chicken peppers onto a baking sheet, and top with shredded cheese and green onions. Broil for 3-5 minutes on HIGH until the cheese is melted to your liking.
  • Drizzle with additional buffalo sauce. Serve up, and store extras in the fridge!
