Hot sauce finds its way into anything and everything on his plate. At 15 he gets to mixing and combining all kinds of seasonings to spice things up. The spicier the better as far as he’s concerned.

    Love spicy food. I agree, this will be perfect with chicken, particularly the bland rotisserie chicken I buy from the grocery stores. The recipe looks easy enough for me to make. Thanks

    I made this for buffalo chicken sliders. In the crockpot, i add four chicken breasts. Pour buffalo sauce over chicken cook on low for 6-7 hours. Shred with forks. Served on Hawaiian sweet bread with blue cheese yogurt dressing, and swiss cheese. To die for!
