Recipe

Let’s talk about buffalo sauce for a minute. It’s one of those hidden gems I always have in my fridge for when something just tastes bland and needs a little something, something. Add it to a turkey sandwich and it magically tastes better. A few glugs in a quick weeknight hash delish. I have even been known to sneak it on to my egg whites in the morning, rolled up in a tortilla with some cheese and veggies. However this recipe is for when you really want that buffalo flavor. Slow cooked chicken tossed with just the right amount of buffalo sauce. Use it in tacos, lettuce wraps, sandwiches, chicken salad, the list goes on and on. And if you really want it to taste like a buffalo wing, add in the butter at the end for a smoother, richer taste.
