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.
