Buffalo Chicken Bites

I love to roast two whole chickens at the same time, I’ve got the stove going and it doesn’t take that much more effort and energy than one bird. But 9 times out of 10 I’ve got enough leftover chicken for one maybe two meals depending on how we stretch it. This recipe may just be the king of stretching leftovers. It only takes 2 large chicken breasts to make about 36 Chicken Bites.
