Buffalo Chicken & Blue Cheese Muffins


My cousins and aunts on my mother's side get together once a month to eat, drink, and catch up. Normally the food is filled with fatty (but delicious) dips, chips, and cakes, but this time we decided to switch it up and make it a "clean eating" party. I wanted to make something that tasted like it was "bad" for you but that was actually filled with healthy ingredients. 

Ingredients

2 cups quinoa, cooked and cooled
2 eggs
2 large chicken breasts, seasoned, cooked, and chopped into very small pieces
1/2 cup Franks Buffalo Wing sauce
1/2 cup low fat mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp salt and pepper, each

Optional: low fat blue cheese dressing for dipping

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350*.
2. In a large bowl combine all ingredients until combined. 
3. Generously spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Fill each cups 1/2 way with mixture. Should 
    make 24 muffins. 
4. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Let cool.
