Buffalo Chicken Bites (Healthier Version)

Put out the buffalo chicken beacon and I'll be the first one there!  And I feel like Super Bowl is one of the best days for all things buffalo chicken.  I wanted to come up with a recipe for buffalo chicken dip that was healthier and I got the idea to make them into bites, and believe me.  These turned out amazing!  I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

4 whole wheat tortillas, cut 2-3" round circles out with cookie cutter or mason jar lid
(I find it helps to warm the tortillas in the microwave for 20 seconds)
2 large chicken breasts, thawed
1/3 cup buffalo wing sauce
1/2 c plain low fat Greek yogurt
1/2 c low sodium organic chicken broth
3 tbsp chopped yellow onion
1 tbsp chopped parsley
1/2 cup shredded cheddar/colby cheese
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp garlic salt
2-4 tbsp greek yogurt Ranch dressing
