Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese is a great one-pot meal that will blow your mind!  It’s a twist on traditional mac & cheese that is easy to make and done in minutes.  It’s super cream, full of tender chicken, and has a great spicy and tangy flavor from the addition of buffalo sauce. The recipe can be found here. Start by slicing the chicken into bite sized pieces.  Add the chicken to a bowl and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Toss to coat all pieces. Turn on the sauté function of the Instant Pot.  Add a small amount of oil.  I like to use avocado oil or coconut oil, but olive oil works just as well.  Add the chicken and cook until cooked through, about 5-7 minutes.  Make sure to stir the chicken while it cooks so it doesn’t stick to the bowl of the Instant … Continue reading

Buffalo Chicken is an obsession of mine and seems to be a very popular food item in general.  Most people I talk to have a favorite buffalo chicken dish of some kind.  I don’t know what it is that draws me back but it’s SO juicy and flavorful…. I could eat it every night of the week. Recently, we made Crock Pot Pulled Buffalo Chicken.  I have a long list of why I love this recipe but the gist of it is, it’s juice, spicy, simple to make, and absolutely delicious!  It can be a meal by itself or used in sandwiches, salads, wraps, tacos, dips, on pizza, and more.  We chose to use it in sandwiches.  It’s a crock pot meal and makes a healthy portion so you’ll be able to eat it for a few days or serve to a crowd. The recipe can be found here. Make … Continue reading

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Bread is a meal in itself.  I typically think of buffalo chicken as an appetizer or side dish but could seriously make a loaf of this bread and eat the entire thing as a meal.  I probably wouldn’t feel the best after but at least I’d be happy, right? 🙂 All joking aside, this Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Bread is amazing!  It’s huge flavor packed into a loaf of bread…. think creamy, cheesy, spicy and crunchy.  You get a little of each in every bite! The recipe can be found here. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  While the oven preheats, make the buffalo chicken dip and prepare the bread loaf. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese (softened), sour cream, mayo, hot sauce, ranch seasoning, chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt. Add the blue cheese, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, and chicken.  … Continue reading

Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken Dip is the perfect recipe when you are looking for something quick and easy!  It’s cheesy, filled with tender chicken, has a bit of heat (hope you can handle it :)), and comes together in very little time.  It’s a great appetizer for game day or parties…or whenever you just need a little buffalo chicken kick! The recipe can be found here. Make sure the chicken is completely thawed and trim off any excess fat.  Place the chicken in the bottom of the Instant Pot.  Pour the hot sauce over the top.  I like to use Frank’s Xtra Red Hot Sauce for a little extra heat.  If you don’t want the added spice, use Frank’s Original Red Hot Sauce. Close the lid and make sure the valve is in the “sealed” position.  Cook on high pressure for 15 minutes.  Let the pressure release naturally for about … Continue reading

When was the last time you ate a Sloppy Joe?  It’s not a common meal in my house but there is something about a Sloppy Joe that reminds me of family dinners as a child.  I wanted to create a new version of a Sloppy Joe that combines another favorite food of ours – buffalo chicken.  The result was a Buffalo Chicken Sloppy Joe.  It was amazing! These Buffalo Chicken Sloppy Joe’s have enough heat without being too spicy and veggies hidden within the meat that add great flavor.  I recommend drizzling some ranch or blue cheese dressing on top to offset the heat.  And because who can enjoy buffalo sauce without ranch or blue cheese?  It really completes the sandwich! The recipe can be found here. Let’s get cooking!  Start by doing all the prep work.  I like to chop my veggies, measure out my dry and liquid ingredients, … Continue reading

There is nothing like a juicy burger hot off the grill, chilled cocktail in hand, and warm weather to cure those winter blues.  I want to share some of my favorite chicken/turkey burger recipes with you now that it’s starting to feel like summer!  These are all a nice break from typical hamburgers and healthier for you (well, maybe not once you add all the toppings).  I think they are very flavorful, simple to make, and delicious to eat.  The first recipe I want to share is for Buffalo Chicken Burgers.  These are ¼ pound burgers that taste just like buffalo wings but without the mess.  Who wouldn’t want that?  I like to top my burger with extra buffalo sauce and a little ranch dressing, then add a small amount of each onto my plate for extra dipping sauce.  This burger would also pair well with blue cheese.  The recipe … Continue reading

One of our favorite meals is Tacos, no matter what kind! We prefer soft shell tacos and  love to experiment with different fillings. Our favorite new filling is Buffalo Chicken using our favorite wing sauce Wing-Time. We think you will love this Buffalo Chicken Taco with Guacamole recipe. We really enjoy the chicken cubed rather than shredded in this recipe.  Dredging the chicken in the flour mixture makes the wing sauce adhere to the chicken cubes when you assemble the tacos. While many taco recipes have green onions, avocado, cilantro and peppers; we believe it is easier to just make our Chunky Guacamole recipe for the filling. Rather than sour cream we prefer to use Taco Fiesta Top the Tater, a sour cream dip that is seasoned perfectly for tacos. We are also crazy for Fish Tacos with Chunky Guacamole. Again, we use the guacamole for our filling and also … Continue reading
