Buffalo Chicken Pockets

It may be a surprise to a lot of you out there to hear that I am a picky eater. You’re probably also wondering how a food blogger can be a picky eater. It’s not that I don’t enjoy food, because I do, but I’m very weird about certain textures and flavors. Mushrooms, count me out. Eggs, forget about it!

Another thing that I’m really picky about is eating meat off of the bone. Did I also mention that I’m a very visual eater? There are a lot of foods, however, that I enjoy that traditionally are bone-in, such as chicken wings. I’m obsessed with buffalo sauce. The downside to this is that when I’m out at restaurants buffalo sauce most of the time comes with, you guess it, bone-in chicken wings. I had to come up with a way to enjoy buffalo chicken without the bones.  

Ready to Bake
Because of my aversion to certain types of foods I have had to create alternatives that still allow me to enjoy certain flavors.  I can typically get over the fact that French toast has been soaked in eggs by drenching my favorite breakfast food with syrup or fruit. Chicken wings are a little harder to get past and so I’ve come up with an alternative: Buffalo Chicken Pockets. I use rotisserie chicken (no bones) tossed in buffalo sauce and tuck it away inside of a flaky biscuit. The perfect solution. Oh, did I mention the tiny crumbles of Litehouse Simply Artisan Blue Cheese? They perfectly compliment the buffalo chicken. These make for an enjoyable snack or football food.  

Serve with Veggie Sticks and Bleu Cheese Dressing Dip

While I don’t think I’ll ever get over my aversion to mushrooms, or the fact that I can only eat bananas cold and sliced, I have managed to find ways to enjoy my favorite foods in alternative ways. I’m sure everyone out there has a picky eater at home. How have you been able to transform favorite flavors into palatable foods?
