Spicy Barbecue Chicken BuffalitosPosted: October 27, 2012
Buffalo Wild Wings is one of my husband’s favorite restaurants. It’s one of the few chain restaurants we found familiar when we moved from Minnesota to Connecticut. And it’s conveniently on the way home from the airport.
He enjoys getting a whole bunch of flavors of chicken wings and seeing how much heat he can stand. He’s been able to eat Blazin’ – the spiciest – but he gets through only one or two of those. Many meals have ended in tears at that restaurant! I personally don’t understand the appeal; I just go for the trivia.
We went in for lunch one day and Nick didn’t feel like trying the whole gamut of wings. So he ordered the Chicken Buffalitos instead. It’s part taco, part wrap. The best part at Buffalo Wild Wings is they will cover your chicken in any of their sauces.
I didn’t want to take the time to make a specialty sauce for a quick dinner, so I mixed barbecue and hot sauce together and poured it over the cooked chicken. My husband added more hot sauce at the table. He said this recipe is a close second to the original and this meal did not end in tears! 🙂
This is a very basic recipe that can be changed a million different ways to suit your taste. Have fun experimenting and enjoy!
Spicy Barbecue Chicken Buffalitos
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken tenders
1 tsp. grill seasoning (I use Montreal Steak Seasoning)
1/2 cup favorite barbecue sauce (Sweet Baby Rays) – more or less to taste
1 tablespoon favorite hot sauce (Frank’s) – more or less to taste
Pico de gallo (I used store bought, but homemade is sooo much better)
Shredded cheeses – cheddar
Season chicken tenders with grill seasoning. Cook tenders in a nonstick skillet over medium high heat until cooked through. Cut tenders into bite size pieces and return to pan. Turn heat to low. Mix barbecue sauce and hot sauce and pour over warm tenders in pan. You want your chicken well coated with sauce. Add more if needed and more hot sauce if you like it really spicy.
Place meat in warmed tortillas and add desired toppings. Roll up or wrap and enjoy!
