3 quick easy buffalo chicken recipes


I love quick and easy made from scratch cooking, especially on the weekends when it always seems like we’re rushing around! This Saturday it seemed like we were on the run most of the day. While we were out I stopped by Kroger to pick up a few things to make a quick and easy supper we could munch on while we watched our favorite Ohio college football team. Kroger is my absolute favorite grocery store! I love their natural foods section and their variety and the quality brands they carry.

While I was browsing I found a couple new products from Hormel in the refrigerated entrees section. Great taste, freshness without preservatives and 0g Trans Fats? I was intrigued, so I picked up Hormel Hot Sandwich Grilled Buffalo Style Chicken for our Saturday night football noshing. I also picked up Everyday Scratch Flame Seared Chicken Breast for a quick lunch or two next week.

I had a few ideas for the Buffalo Chicken, so I also picked up some refrigerated pizza crust, Scoops corn chips, sour cream, salsa, and cheese. While we were running we also stopped by our local farmer’s market and picked up some fresh tomatoes and greens.

We were late for kickoff because we were still running, so when we got home I wanted to make our food as quick as possible so I could watch the game. I couldn’t decide between buffalo chicken pizza muffins (one of my son’s faves), and buffalo chicken nacho bites ( a twist on one of my husband’s faves) so I made both, plus a buffalo chicken and ranch salad for me. Yum!

Buffalo chicken nachos are a fun twist on one of my family’s game day favorites.
