If you are like me, you do not want to spend your entire food budget on one steak dinner, chicken is cheap so it will have to do!  That being said, I am always looking for yummy new recipes for chicken.

Bang Bang Buffalo Chicken was born when I found an unopened bottle of Franks Buffalo Wing Sauce in pantry. Rather than traditional chicken wings (I mean…can you ever get tired of tasty chicken wings? I don’t think so!)  I tried something different and used the Buffalo Wing Sauce in a batter for my chicken instead.

I will tell you that this is the most crispy, delicious chicken that I have ever tasted. It took a little bit of time to make, but it was so worth it. Just a note – I used my deep fryer to make these, but you can also fry them in a skillet.

These delicious Bang Bang Buffalo Chicken bites are amazing served with Sweet Buffalo Chili Sauce.
