This dish is knock-your-socks-off good! I used boneless and skinless chicken thighs instead of breasts and it worked out just fine. They taste just like the 'Red-Hot' buffalo wings, only with extras. I'll be using the chicken in wraps and on rice. Love this!! Made for Bargain Basement tag game.

  1. Note: Regular chicken can be substituted for more flavor impact!
  2. Preheat large saucepan on top of stove.
  3. Chop onions into one inch bite size pieces.
  4. Add 2 tablespoons margarine or cooking oil.
  5. Add the pepper flakes to release the heat into the margarine or oil.
  6. After about two minutes, making sure the pepper flakes do not burn, add onions and saute until the onions are either translucent or lightly browned.
  7. Add chicken breasts and cook with lid on saucepan for 20 minutes.
  8. Note: Remember to keep on medium heat and check periodically to make sure the hot sauce doesn't evaporate or burn.
  9. If you need to add more hot sauce that is fine. Or if you would rather substitute water instead of more hot sauce that is fine also.
