If you love deviled eggs then you'll love this spin off with chicken, buffalo sauce, and celery. Published by Debbie Moose (Deviled Egg: 50 Recipes from Simple to Sassy) ***if you like a lot of chicken, I now use a full cup of chopped (and I'm talking chopped) chicken and any extra mix I have after the eggs are filled, I use them on a celery log and cut them into bite size pieces (think ants on a log). Also, I now add a little bit of ranch to the chicken soaked in buffalo sauce (thanks to a review). ENJOY!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup chopped cooked chicken (store cooked rotisserie chicken for me)
  • buffalo wing sauce to cover chicken, plus 5 teaspoons
  • 6 hard-boiled eggs, peeled cut in half and yolks mashed in a bowl
  • 14 cup softened butter
  • 14 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chopped celery, plus extra to garnish


  1. cover chicken with enough Buffalo sauce; let sit at least 5 minutes.
  2. combine yolk and butter.
  3. stir in celery and Tabasco.
  4. add chicken and 5 teaspoons of Buffalo sauce.
  5. place mixture in zip lock bag with the corner cut off (big enough to squeeze out mixture).
  6. fill egg whites with mixture and garnish with celery.
  7. enjoy right away or let it sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes for flavors to develop.

I absolutely LOVE this idea...great combination. However, I changed a few things to make it even better. Instead of using 1/4 cup butter, I used 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened. Then I used green onions instead of celery, only because I didn't have any celery in the house, and it was delicious! I, too, added some ranch and a little blue cheese dressing and it was very creamy and yummy.

Fabulous! We loved the combo of buffalo chicken with the deviled eggs. I included the suggested small amount of Ranch dressing and used about 1/2 c of shredded chicken. Thanks for sharing! PAC Spring '12

I thought these were great. DH gave them a little less enthusiastic review. That may be because I took it a little easy on the wing sauce to ensure these were crowd friendly. I did add about a tsp. of fat free ranch which I think really enhanced the flavor. I think this is a keeper!
