Sweet & Smoky Chicken Bites with Roasted Red Pepper Goat Cheese Dipping Sauce

This recipe was adapted from a baked wing recipe that gained Pinterest popularity. I can't always find "Buffalo style" segmented wings at the grocery store, and I absolutely refuse to use the intact wings with that nasty pointed end piece. If you don't know what I'm talking about, that's for the best. So I decided to copy the basic gist of the recipe, especially the dipping sauce, and adjust it for good old chicken breasts. As it turns out, they were delicious little sweet but subtly spicy-smoky morsels that Adam practically hoovered off of his plate... and then I licked mine. Clean. I may have even snuck a small spoonful of the sauce, but I don't necessarily condone that much gluttony. Check out the wildly easy recipe below.

2. Combine all spices in Ziploc bag.
3. Cut chicken into 1" cubes, add to Ziploc bag, and shake.
