Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Bites

Have you ever seen this?
I don't know how I've lived without it for this long.... and yes, it's as fun as it looks ;)
My wonderful sister ordered this for me and I'll never, ever complain about shredding/chopping chicken again.  Buy one, trust me.

On to the irresistible recipe ...
On vacation, I tried these bites and adored them.  I'm always looking for another way to use quinoa and this is the best quinoa recipe I've found so far!  They're a perfect little app, or light meal, and a great addition to a party spread.  Blue cheese dressing for dipping is a must.
Best dishes and yummy dreams!

I have not tried quinoa but these do look fun if not tasty. And I have had one of those chopping tools for several years and have given them as gifts. Never used it with chicken though, mostly hamburger.

Like Wendy, I have one of those chopping tools, but have only used it for ground meats. Next time I need to shred chicken I will try it.

Have never eaten quinoa but anything with buffalo chicken must be good!

I haven't tried quinoa before, I've always been too scared. But I keep finding all of these great recipes that make me want to try it and here's another one! These bites look wonderful :)

I would love to have you share this recipe at Mom's Test Meal Mondays! Hope you've had a wonderful day!

I love quinoa and I LOVE buffalo chicken! What a great idea to combine the two. I'd love for you to share this recipe, along with any others, at my Monday party.

Shred your chicken in a kitchen aid with they paddle attachment. Easiest, best thing ever! Pulled pork, shredded turkey on mashed potatoes, love it!
