Buffalo Lime Chicken

Buffalo Lime Chicken - chicken marinated in buffalo sauce and lime - grill, pan sear or bake for a quick weeknight meal. Ready to eat in 15 minutes!

I love spicy food, especially buffalo chicken. This chicken is marinated in wing sauce and lime juice. I loved the zing the lime juice gave the chicken. I was worried that the chicken would be super hot, but it really wasn't. It had a great buffalo sauce flavor to it.

This chicken was so easy to make. I had everything in the pantry and was able to just throw this together in minutes. I let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator all day. I cooked the chicken in a sauté pan, but these would also be great grilled. We both really liked this chicken. It is definitely going into the dinner rotation.

  1. This sounds FANTASTIC! I have every single ingredient on hand except for chicken tenders. But I have shrimp! Might this work for that? I might try it tonight!
