  1. This was quick and easy to prepare. I used butter and since I ran out of Tabasco I added a little Vietnamese Chili-Garlic sauce to make 1/4 cup. The sauce was tasty, and so was the chicken, but they didn't really want to stick together, because the sauce was too thin. I will be working on this to see how it can be thickened or made to stick better; it will be well worth the effort.
  2. I had bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs, and I wanted them cooked faster, so I sprinkled with a little garlic salt and fried for closer to 7-8 minutes per side to crisp up the skin and speed up the cooking. Instead of hot sauce, I had Food Lion "buffalo style wing sauce" (super cheap and plenty tasty). Put the chicken on a cookie sheet, coating both sides of the chicken in just the sauce (no water or butter), roasted at 400 for about 10 minutes (used thermometer). My husband raved about these thighs! Will do again, paired with veggie pizza. No more Domino's! Some reviewers complained about the runniness of the sauce- no problem here. I omitted the water and butter and used the thicker sauce, and the thighs turned out nicely coated.
  3. This was GREAT! I used bone-in, skin-on thighs, but next time I'll use boneless skinless because the skin was a little fatty and gummy. I preseasoned the chicken with garlic salt, Mccormick Rotisserie Chicken Seasoning, and Mrs. Dash Chicken Seasoning. My boyfriend said the seasoning really added something special. I also baked the thighs without browning them in the skillet, which worked fine. 350 for 30 minutes, then I added the sauce and turned the heat up to 450 for 15 minutes to get the skin golden. I used Frank's Buffalo Wing Sauce, and next time I'll leave out the butter and the water because all they really did was thin down the sauce. Delicious! The boyfriend told me I should definitely save this recipe for later. Will make again ,maybe for potlucks and parties !
  4. It was very Yummy!!
  5. Delicious, and very easy. I left out the water, and added about 1/3 cup of tomato sauce. Served with rice to soak of some of the delicious sauce.


  1. I added more hot sauce to the recipe then made a horseradish sauce/hot sauce dipping sauce because I forgot I ate all the Bleu cheese yesterday! ??
