It still surprises me that buffalo chicken is one of my favorite foods. I was raised on very mild food. Sometimes the only spice used was garlic powder in very small quantities. As I've gotten older, I have been pretty open to trying new foods because I don't know what I may love that I haven't had. I also had never eaten anything spicy at all until I met my husband. It just wasn't in my wheelhouse. I started off eating the Tyson buffalo chicken strips and Hanover's buffalo pretzels. It took a long time to build a tolerance to spiciness, but I love it now. Buffalo sauce is just so dang good. I prefer Frank's Red Hot and just the thought of it makes my mouth water.

This recipe is fairly simple and has elements of basic breaded chicken with the added buffalo sauce deliciousness to it. Italian seasoning pairs perfectly with buffalo sauce! I served up these little nuggets with cheese pizza :)

      I love crunchy baked chicken and this Parmesan Chicken with Caesar Roasted Romaine is just awesome.  I can't think of a better finger food than these Buffalo Chicken Cheddar Bites from Running in the Kitchen.
