And while this easy chicken recipe has enough hot buffalo sauce to make your upper lip sweat, the real secret to this loaded skillet appetizer is all the cheese. It’s melted, gooey goodness! While the mozzarella shows out with its tantalizing cheese pulls, it’s the quiet, salty feta nestled underneath that really steals the taste show.
What are Boneless Buffalo Wings Made of?
Boneless Buffalo Chicken Wings oddly enough aren’t made of buffalo… or chicken wings… They are actually tender chunks of boneless, breaded chicken breast tossed in a zesty buffalo hot sauce. Mostly known as party food and definitely as classic football food, these saucy, spicy, grown up chicken nuggets are kicked up even more in this recipe with 2 cheeses and a little butter!
Why We Love This Recipe
- I love the ease of using the frozen breaded popcorn chicken instead of breading and frying my own chicken pieces.
- Not everything has to be made from scratch. Having a shortcut recipe in my back pocket when throwing a party is super handy. It frees up time to do other things, like make other recipes that might need more attention, set up a great buffet table or just enjoy my guests!
- I can control the heat. Depending on who will be eating these wings, I can amp up or turn down the heat just by choosing a hot or mild Buffalon wing sauce. Also, serving them with a Ranch dressing or other creamy sauce can balance the heat.
