  • 48 tater tots
  • 2 oz light cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup non fat greek yogurt
  • 1.75 lbs chicken breast, raw or about 3.5 cups chopped and cooked chicken breast
  • 1/4 cup Buffalo wing sauce I prefer Frank's
  • 1.5 tbsp ranch seasoning mix I use Hidden Valley
  • 3/4 cup green onions chopped
  • 1.25 cups reduced fat shredded mozzarella cheese divided
  • cooking spray
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

  2. If opting to use  uncooked chicken breast: Season each side of chicken breast with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, spray with cooking spray, place chicken on skillet and cook for 4 minutes on each side or until meat thermometer temp reaches 165 degrees. When the chicken is cooked through set aside and let rest for 5-10 minutes. If you have already cooked chicken. Disregard this step and use 3.5 cups cooked and chopped chicken. 

  3. Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray very well. Place four tots into each cup. Bake for 15 minutes. 

  4. In a large bowl add chopped chicken, green onions, cream cheese, greek yogurt, ranch seasoning mix, buffalo wing sauce, and half of the mozzarella cheese. Stir together until combined well. 

  5. After 15 minutes remove tots from the oven and use a tamper or handle of a wooden spoon to gently press and form a tater tot cup. 

  6. Fill the tot cups with Buffalo chicken mixuture and sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese on top of each tin. 

  7. Place the tots back into the oven for 15 minutes. 

  8. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the muffin tin. 

  9. Drizzle with extra buffalo wing sauce and/or skinny ranch and top off with a few chopped green onions, if desired.

  10. Enjoy!
