Grilled Buffalo Chicken


When I saw this recipe in the January edition of Cooking Light I knew we had to make it.  Since it is finally grilling weather, we gave it a try.  We LOVED it!

It wasn't as spicy as I thought it would be.  It was actually pretty mild for us.  Next time I will pour some of the reserved buffalo sauce over the chicken after we take it off the grill.  I also want to try this as a sandwich and top it with lettuce, tomato, bleu cheese or ranch dressing and pepper jack cheese.   That sounds like the perfect Sunday lunch.




Grilled Buffalo Chicken
Cooking Light
(Printable Recipe)

3/4 cup hot sauce (such as Crystal)
1/4 cup butter, melted
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Cooking spray
1/4 teaspoon salt
Light ranch dressing (optional)

Combine hot sauce, melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, and onion powder in a bowl. Reserve 1/4 cup hot sauce mixture; pour remaining hot sauce mixture in a zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken breast halves to bag; seal. Marinate at room temperature 20 minutes (don't refrigerate it - the butter will harden). Remove chicken from bag; discard marinade in bag. Sprinkle chicken with salt. Grill chicken until done. Brush reserved marinade over chicken. Serve with light ranch dressing, if desired.

  1. Chicken Leg's grilled chicken always looks grilled to perfection - something I have not gotten the hang of - I can do killer ribs, and hubby can smoke some awesome butts, but my chicken does not look like his - "not dry" - what is his secret? slow, low temp? high temp? I love all your recipes! Teri Dingler

  4. Teri - I guess it just takes practice. We use charcoal and it cooks in about 12-15 minutes - just depending on the size of the chicken. He takes it off the grill at about 10 minutes and we cut it to see how much longer it has. I think that is the key to not drying it out.

    Ribs and pork butt are on my list to grill this summer. I love good BBQ.

  5. That chicken looks so good. I finally got my barbecue out on Friday. I hope Mother Nature cooperates enough to let me keep it out. I would really like to try this dish!

  6. I've enjoyed grilled buffalo chicken several times this Spring but I have been cheating and using KC Masterpiece's new marinade.

  7. I added you to my reader about a month ago but I just read your profile (about me)section. I think I am going to be trying a lot of your recipes because everyone makes fun of me for always ordering chicken. I look forward to searching through your past posts and adding to my "To Make" list!
