Buffalo Chicken Cupcakes

First, I am so very sorry that three weeks after saying I'd post this I am finally posting.

Second, I cannot take credit for this recipe. It is the work of this site. (see the button at the end of the blog)

Third, the pictures here ARE mine as this is my attempt/version of the recipe.

Here we go!!

What you need:
2 C boneless, skinless chicken breast - cooked and chopped small
3 T Buffalo Wing Sauce (I used Franks brand)
1/2 a celery stalk - chopped small (I used my Ninja Prep Master)
1 C reduced fat 2% shredded cheddar cheese
16 Wonton Wrappers (varies where you'll find them at the store, but try the produce section or where the cold "ethnic" foods are)

Here's what you do:

Cook your chicken. I boiled mine as there were no specific instructions given for cooking it and this was the fastest way I could think of.

(When it's done, remove it from the water and let it cool down some before chopping.)

Preheat the oven to 375. Lightly mist 8 cups of a muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.

Chop your celery stick (again, I used my Ninja Prep Master...because IT. IS. THE. BOMB!)
Put Buffalo Sauce and celery in a bowl and mix.

Chop up the cooked chicken small and add it to the celery and buffalo sauce. Mix well so that chicken pieces are coated nicely.

Layer the eight muffin cups with a single wanton wrapper.

Add a spoonful of the chicken mix.

Add a layer of the cheddar cheese (use your judgement on how much as you only have a cup to work with).

Layer another wonton wrapper.

Repeat the chicken and cheese layers.
Bake in oven for 18-20 minutes.

*I increased the recipe to use the last of the chicken I had on hand...not quite double, but more than the regular size. That is why there are more than 8 cupcakes here*

**the original recipe calls for four Laughing Cow Blue Cheese Wedges to be in the celery sauce mix. But Blue Cheese isn't a favorite in this house, and I couldn't find it, so I did without**

The original recipe has a serving as one cupcake with 4 points each. Without the blue cheese, however, the points value for my recipe is only 3.

These have husbands approval, which is a wonderful thing when you're trying to cook healthy! They are also great snack foods and would be perfect for game day, or something similar.
