Bangin’ Hot Buffalo Chicken

This buffalo chicken will be a hit with any family-- you'll never believe what's in the marinade! It's SO worth it, but trust me, it's hot hot hot. If you want a great chicken recipe for dinner, this is the one for you-- cut it up and serve it over tacos, rice, or by itself.

They’re where it’s at– I love them by themselves, or cut up over rice, pasta, or in tacos. There’s just something spicy about them, and I’m so glad I found this recipe in my family recipe box to share with all of you. My grandfather must have known what he was doing to serve this super-spicy Buffalo Chicken!

Usually that takes me all day because the crust has to rise from morning. How were we going to have pizza in time for practice? Easy. With biscuit dough.
