Buffalo Chicken Thighs

"These chicken thighs go well with a side of celery sticks and light ranch dressing. After breezermom's helpful review, I changed the heat to cook the chicken in the skillet from medium high to medium. The medium high heat is too low for me, but my oven is old and the burners probably aren't as hot as newer stoves."

  1. I only omitted the salt. But other than that didn't change the ingredients. I forgot to remove the skin :( But it was still great with the yummy spicy sauce. I baked them longer (maybe 20 minutes more). Thanks Lainey :) Made for Holiday tag game
  2. Wow! The taste is fabulous! I made the mistake of following the directions to heat my skillet to medium high.....it totally burned the outside of my chicken. And, I doubled the hot sauce/butter mix, and so glad I did! I'll reduce the temp on the skillet so I don't have burnt chicken next time. Giving this 5 stars, because it is soooo delish!
