Buffalo Chicken Salad


Russ woke up this morning and told me he was craving Buffalo chicken wings.  That was an almost cruel thing for him to say because then he got me craving them too.  It turned out not to be such a mean thing because I made this yummy Buffalo Chicken Thighs with Frank’s ZERO calorie Buffalo hot sauce.  I figured I could have a little blue cheese then and I was one happy camper and so was Russ.  Marital strife adverted.


6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs cut into strips

¼ cup Frank’s Buffalo Hot Sauce

Large red onion

1/3 cup of crumbled Blue Cheese

Lots of lettuce


Heat a nonstick fry pan on high on the stove and add the chicken strips with salt and pepper.  Cover and cook for five minutes, until the chicken is brown on one side.  Flip all the chicken over and cook another 3 minutes on the other side with the lid on.  Remove the chicken from the pan with tongs or a slotted spoon and put in a bowl with the hot sauce and mix it all up together.  I like to cover it and let the hot sauce soak in the chicken.


Using the same fry pan without wiping it out, fry up the onions.  Even thought the chicken was skinless there was still fat in the thighs, which rendered out in the pan.  Not so much to kill you, but enough to make the onions really tasty.

Put a pile of lettuce on a plate and arrange the onions, chicken and sprinkle of blue cheese on top.  I like to drizzle a little balsamic vinegar on top for a little more tang, but you don’t really need it.


The satisfaction of the wings with none of the guilt.
