This Grilled Buffalo Chicken begins with a delicious buffalo sauce marinade that is packed with a kick! This is such a fun and tasty grill recipe!
Summer flew by. School is in session, but the heat is still here. Which means, I am still outside grilling to keep the heat outside.
I LOVE grill recipes and this one is no exception. This buffalo marinade is phenomenal and packed with a kick! We served this at a family get together and it received such high compliments! It is an addition form the Buffalo Chicken Wings recipe and is absolutely fantastic!
I also love this Grilled Buffalo Chicken because it marinades overnight, make it dinner prep even easier the day of. All you do is throw it on the grill. I reserved a little bit of the sauce before it touched the raw chicken and stored it in an airtight container in the fridge to be able to lather on a little bit extra after it had been grilled and cooked.
This received thumbs up all the way around! Give this a try before you retire the grill for the year ;) You will be happy you did!
