“Are you looking for something to spice up your life? Can you take the heat? Try this - you'll find out why I make it once a week! This recipe actually is for about 20 frozen wings, but to cut back on the fat content I now use it for 4 defrosted (skinless) boneless chicken breast.”
4 sandwiches

  1. You will also need: 1 Gallon size storage bag.
  2. Preheat skillet on stovetop.

  4. Combine flour, paprika, and salt in storage bag.
  5. Give a good shake to coat pieces.

  7. Remove chicken breasts and place on paper towels to drain off excessive oil.
  8. Combine melted butter, garlic and cayenne pepper in large bowl.
  9. To make a mild sauce, use 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper.
  10. Read next step if wanting a hotter sauce.
  11. Whisk Frank's Red Hot Sauce with the melted butter combo.
  12. If dividing the sauce into mild and hot, pour half into another bowl.
  13. For the hotter sauce, use up to another 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper.
  14. Add whatever amount of red pepper flakes you may like.
  15. I just shake it on to semi cover the buffalo sauce.
  16. Place cooked chicken breasts inside sauce and coat both sides.
  17. Make sandwich and enjoy!
  18. Special Note on wings: Flour coat wings frozen!

  20. Sauce coat right before eating!
  21. Allowing the sauce to sit on the wings will make them gooey.
