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!

This chicken is super easy to make. Whisk together hot sauce, melted butter, Worcestershire sauce, and onion powder. Let the chicken hang out for a bit and then throw it on the grill. Don’t have a grill? No problem! You can make the chicken inside. Pan sear the chicken for 3 to 4 minutes on both sides. Place chicken on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 165ºF.

This chicken 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.

We served this chicken with some corn and butter peas. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with this Grilled Buffalo Chicken:

Grilled Buffalo Chicken – chicken marinated in butter, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and onion powder. Seriously delicious!! Drizzle with a little ranch and you have a light and healthy meal!! #grilling #chicken

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup hot sauce
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 4 (6-oz) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • Cooking spray
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • Light ranch dressing, optional

Instructions:

  • 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.

Notes:

To cook chicken without a grill, pan sear chicken for 3 to 4 minutes on both sides. Place chicken on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 165ºF.
Can use marinade on any cut of chicken – breasts, thighs, tenders, legs.
Can use bone-in or boneless chicken – adjust the cooking time and cook until internal the temperature reaches 165ºF.
I use Crystals or Frank’s hot sauce.

  1. I made this today! This was my first attempt at cooking chicken breast on the grill and they were DELICIOUS! Thanks for sharing will definitely make this again

  2. I just came across this and went out to the grill and got started. Great recipe! This was exactly what I was looking for. VERY simple and really delicious. WIN!

  3. Oh good! I tore this out of the magazine, too, but haven't gotten around to making it. Glad to know it'll be tasty!! Thanks 🙂

  4. 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!

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

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. This looks so delicious! Would really have to try out that buffalo sauce. Makes me drool just looking at the photos!

  9. Just found your blog. Going to try the Buffalo Chicken this weekend. Look forward to trying more of your recipes!

    I'm a recipe blog-aholic.

  10. 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
