Crispy Chicken Bites with Homemade Ranch Dressing

Simple to prepare and full of flavor these chicken bites and the homemade ranch dressing are great for parties and game day crowds (both kids and adults).

Key Nutrition Points:

  • Coating chicken with whole wheat breadcrumbs increased fiber.
  • Preparing at home and baking instead of frying decreases fat and sodium compared to store-bought or restaurant options.
  • The ranch dressing is Greek yogurt based, increasing protein and lowering fat, sugar, and salt when compared to store-bought dressings.
