I too was confused with the title "Buffalo Chicken". So what I did was turn the amounts around. I mixed the mayo & Franks Wing Sauce together. I placed it in a bowl lined in lettuce and drizzled the barbecue sauce on top. I served it as an appetizer with tostito scoops. It was delicious. My family actually got a separate bowl of the barbecue sauce and drizzled on each scoop as they ate it. Nice, refreshing and easy. Thank you.

This get 5 stars for being so easy and tasty even if it doesn't scream "buffalo chicken." I never thought of mixing BBQ sauce with mayo and the combination was delish! I added in enough hot sauce to satisfy my taste buds and ate this on sandwich buns. Will definitely make again! Thanks for posting Made for Zaar Cookbook Tag.
