If you have been following my cravings for any time at all, you have probably noticed my slight obsession with Buffalo sauces (aka Cayenne Pepper Hot Sauce with a butter base) and therefore Buffalo recipes such as Slow Cooker Honey Buffalo Meatballs, Honey Buffalo Chicken Wings, Honey Buffalo Chicken Taquitos and on and on…the kick of spice just gets me.

So when I began dreaming of Buffalo Chicken Salad (with new VIDEO) and Buffalo Chicken Taco recipes, I knew I needed to create a dynamite All-Purpose Buffalo Chicken Recipe first so the chicken could stand alone in its delicoiusness or remain the star of the show when paired with such bells and whistles as Cilantro Blue Cheese Ranch. That matchup is going to be a close one.
How To Make Buffalo Chicken
Then it was on to buffalo chicken marinade testing. But first can I say how much I love marinades? They are the easiest way to create, tender, juicy, flavor bursting chicken with crazy little prep. But to be flavor bursting, it has to be the right marinade.
At first I just marinated the chicken in Buffalo Hot Wings Sauce, splashes of honey and lime and a rainbow of spices but it was missing a little something-something.
So to transform this chicken from good to great, I reserved some of the marinade, whisked in some more honey and lime and glazed the cooked chicken with it and now we have dynamite delicious Buffalo Chicken! I can’t even tell you how many midnight sandwiches I’ve devoured with this chicken – because I crave this chicken – because I can’t go to bed without this chicken!
Is this Buffalo Chicken Recipe Spicy?
The buffalo chicken alone isn’t too spicy, just very flavorful so you don’t have to worry about it not being family friendly. The glaze is really where the punch of heat comes so you can completely control the spice level of your chicken – more heat – more glaze, less heat, less glaze. Either way, winner winner chicken dinner. I’ve been wanting to say that for a while.
Ways to customize your Buffalo Chicken
- You can use chicken thighs instead of chicken breasts and adjust cooking time accordingly.
- The more glaze the spicier the chicken. The less glaze, less heat.
- Use Franks Hot WINGS Sauce for spicier chicken, traditional Franks Hot Sauce for less heat.
- Try tossing the chicken with your favorite BBQ sauce – amazing!
- Chicken is incredible sliced or chopped for sandwiches, in wraps, salads, tacos, etc.
