Juicy flavorful All Purpose Buffalo Chicken is is a meal all by itself or instantly transforms salads, sandwiches, wraps, tacos, etc into the most flavor bursting meal EVER! I love having this chicken on hand!
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 and Buffalo Chicken Taco recipes, I knew I needed to create a dynamite All-Purpose Buffalo Chicken marinade 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 Bleu Cheese Ranch. That matchup is going to be a close one.
Then it was on to 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!
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.
Dynamite delicious Buffalo Chicken is waiting to transform your ordinary meals to extraordinary! And check back soon because all that juicy Buffalo chicken is being piled high into these tacos….
