Grilled Cheesy Buffalo Chicken

Hi Everyone,

Man oh man, I couldn’t wait for dinner tonight!  I was driving to work and for some odd reason at 5:30am I’m thinking I want Buffalo Chicken for dinner.  After work I rushed to Trader Joe’s and picked up my chicken and I just couldn’t wait to start making dinner.  This is one heck of a good dinner that I simply LOVE!  As you know I am a huge Buffalo chicken fan, especially since I am from Buffalo and boy do I miss those chicken wings, but you know what?  I liked today’s recipe better than good old chicken wings.  How could I not, its cheesy, spicy and perfect!!
Grilled Cheesy Buffalo Chicken
My Grilled Cheesy Buffalo Chicken is made with nothing better than Franks Hot Sauce, filled with cheesy, melting mozzarella cheese. It simply screams perfection in my eyes. I served it with a little side salad and purple potatoes. I keep getting purple potatoes in my CSA Box. My Husband thinks they are funny, but he just loves them. They taste just like regular potatoes. They are just odd in color. When I made my Skillet Roasted Chicken and served it with roasted potatoes, I thought they were red potatoes and when we sat down to dinner they were purple. lol

To make this chicken it’s super easy!! I cut my chicken horizontally and just stuffed it with a little cheese, folded it over and it was ready for the sauce. To make the hot sauce, I melted some butter in the microwave, added Franks Hot Sauce and a pinch of celery salt. I brushed it on my chicken and on the grill it went. I know a lot of you can’t grill right now, but don’t let that stop you from having this wonderful dish. You can make it the same way, just by cooking it in the oven. Just heat your oven to 375 degrees, spray a baking dish with cooking spray, add the chicken and drizzle the hot sauce over the top. Place it in the oven for about 35 minutes and it will be done. That was how I was originally going to make it, but with it being 77 degrees out, I just had to cook it on the grill. I love grilling season. Matter in fact this weekend it the opening of the Farmers Market! Yah!! I really think Spring is here! At least in California.

  6. I read this recipe name to my husband and he said YES! Pinned! Thank you for sharing it!

  7. In the directions / recipe I do not see where you stuffed the chicken & melted the cheese. Did you do that at the end of the grilling? Can you elaborate? Thanks.

  8. have made this twice now but have used my Pampered Chef grill pan because the BBQ is hidden under a snowbank. Totally delicious and so, so easy. Would definitely serve this to company.

  9. I am making this asap! How does the cheese not just melt out all over the grill?

  12. Amanda Neilson says:

  13. Jennifer I have tried so many of your recipes and just wanted to say they are always great!! Thanks so much! :)

  14. If I do this in the oven, how long should it cook for??

  15. Vicki Hegedus says:

    Thanks for the super dinner idea! I took out chicken breasts this morning and have been wondering what to do with them ever since. Your idea is a life-saver. It’s too bad we just moved and the grill isn’t hooked up yet, but the oven works : )

  16. I made this for lunch today and am having the other half for dinner!!! It was absolutely fantastic!! I had all the ingredients and it was quick and easy!!! Thank you so much!!!

  17. So when you cut the chicken u don’t cut it completely on one side just kinda make a slit in it and stuff it or will it complety open up and then you fold it back into place ? If that makes since what I’m asking

  18. 1/4 cup of cheese is really enough for all that chicken?

  19. Can this be done on a shove top?

  20. How spicy/hot is this recipe? I really want to try it tonight, but i don’t want it to be to “hot” for my son.

  21. I think I’ll use BBQ sauce instead of hot sauce. We aren’t much for spicy foods. Sounds yummy!

  22. This is heaven on a plate right here! Two of my most favorite things to eat all in one! Genius!!
