Served alongside a carb of choice (potatoes or bread or rice) and a healthy side of sauteed or steamed or roasted vegetables, it makes for a hassle-free and go-to dish.Buffalo chicken is basically any form of cooked chicken (wings are most popular) coated in a melted butter and hotsauce mixture. The crumbled blue cheese topping mimics the generic blue cheese dressing buffalo wings are usually served with.
