Baked Buffalo Chicken Jalapeño Poppers

The little bite sized babies might be cute, but watch out – they pack a little punch!

I love jalapeno poppers AND buffalo chicken so I decided to combine them both and really spice things up!

These are so good and real easy to make. Prep them ahead and bake them just before you’re ready to serve. They should be served hot, so don’t bake them ahead. If you want to go carb-less or gluten free, I think they would be good without the panko too.  Just please do yourself a favor and wear gloves when you cut the peppers.

Hot and Spicy Buffalo Shrimp Dip

Move over buffalo wings, this hot and cheesy shrimp dip will have everyone going back for more!

Superbowl Sunday is just a few days away! I have tons of skinny appetizer recipes[1] you can make, but I wanted to add one more, because quite honestly, what’s football without the buffalo dip!

This was inspired by my Buffalo Chicken Dip[2], I wanted to try a shrimp version topped with melted cheese, and we loved how it turned out!

Serve this with crudites to keep it light; celery and carrot sticks are the perfect vessel for scooping up the buffalo goodness! You can even add some baked chips to the table, baked pita chips work great. I minced some of the celery leaf for garnish for a little color. Enjoy!

Skinny Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins

What’s football without the appetizers. These potato skins are stuffed with shredded buffalo chicken breast made in the crock pot, then topped with melted cheese, blue cheese dressing, carrots and celery – they are seriously delicious!

Remember these crock pot buffalo chicken lettuce wraps[1]? Same chicken, only this time I stuffed them in potato skins and topped them with cheese. So good!

You can make the chicken, blue cheese dressing and potatoes ahead, then when you’re ready to serve your guests assemble them and pop them in the oven! Double or triple it for more servings.

They even make a great meal, I had 3 for lunch and it totaled 7 points plus and I was a happy camper. Enjoy!

Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins

Servings: 12 • Size: 1 potato skin, loaded • Old Points: 2 pts • Points+: 2 pt
Calories: 82 • Fat: 2 g • Carb: 7 g • Fiber: 1 g • Protein: 8 g • Sugar: 0.5 g
Sodium: 110 mg 

Ingredients:

For the chicken:

  • 12 oz boneless skinless chicken breast (or tenderloins)
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 16 oz fat free low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup hot cayenne pepper sauce (I used Frank’s)

For the toppings:

  • 12 tbsp reduced fat shredded cheese
  • 1/2 cup carrots, cut into 2-inch matchsticks
  • 1 large celery stalks, cut into 2-inch matchsticks
  • 1/4 cup Skinny Blue Cheese Dressing[2]

Directions:

In a crock pot, combine chicken, onions, celery stalk, garlic and broth (enough to cover your chicken, use water if the can of broth isn’t enough). Cover and cook on HIGH 4 hours or LOW 6 hours.

Remove the chicken from pot, reserve 1/2 cup broth and discard the rest (or save for other recipes). Shred the chicken with two forks, return to the slow cooker with the 1/2 cup of the broth and the hot sauce; Cook on HIGH for an additional 30 minutes. Makes 1 1/2 cups chicken.

Meanwhile, pierce potato with a fork a few times all around. Place in microwave and cook on high about 5 minutes per potato; set aside to cool. Cut potatoes in half horizontally. Scoop out potatoes (I save the extra potato to make skinny garlic mashed potatoes the next day) leaving about 1/4 inch thick wall, skins will weigh about 1 oz each.

Heat oven to 450°. Lightly spray potato skins on both sides with oil and place a foil lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper and bake 10 minutes.

Remove from the oven, add 2 tablespoons of chicken meat filling into each potato skin, top with 1 tbsp shredded cheese and bake 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Top each with 1 tsp blue cheese dressing, shredded carrots and celery and start eating!
