Buffalo Chicken Broccoli Cheddar Bites

Raven Higheagle


If there could be a perfect football food, these buffalo chicken cheddar bites would be it. Although, no need to like football to enjoy them, I’ll gladly pop a few back without the tv on!
There’s precisely 1 sport I actually enjoy watching. Hockey.
The Stanley Cup just doesn’t elicit the same dedication America has to epic finger foods like the Super Bowl does.

The only thing football does right in my opinion, the food.
So, if I’m gonna be forced to watch the stupid “big” game, you can find me by the tray of these, face planted into buffalo chicken goodness
