    Yum yum! Great way to prepare the chicken. I used "corn flake" crumbs, thought it went well with the hot sauce. I went ape on the vegetables and toppings here-- carrots, celery, cukes, red pepper, tomatoes, cheese, hard boiled eggs. I used ranch dressing and added a little hot sauce to that as well. Our salads were HUGE, DH couldn't even finish his! Thanks for the idea and recipe!

    Very good....I used already breaded chicken nuggets by tyson in freezer section and melted the butter and hot sauce in microwave in bowl. cooked nuggets as directed and put in bowl with hot sauce blend and shook to coat. all else the same. really nice recipe. thank you

    This is better than the buffalo chicken salads you can get in restaurants. I used a chipotle sauce, and added some red onion and chickpeas to the salad. My husband raved, and normally he's not much on main-dish salads for dinner. I made extra chicken tenders (cut up some breasts) on purpose so we could snack on them with a blue cheese dip later. Just delish! Thanks.
