Buffalo Chicken Pizza

buffalo chicken servedThe kids had a crazy schedule this evening – Tuesday’s is the hard night – and Lisa still isn’t feeling great.  Thursday I am have a “dental proceedure” done and probably won’t feel like cooking and Sunday is the Super Bowl and we are bringing my favorite Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip.

 

So, I bought 4 big chicken breasts, enough to make dinner and prep for the next few days:

  • Tonights Buffalo Chicken Pizza
  • Prep the Buffalo Chicken WIng Sauce and Chicken for the Super Bowl
  • and using the water I boiled all the chicken in I used as a base for Thursday’s Chicken Soup – maybe as adventerous as I will feel.

I love Buffalo Chicken Wing Sauce but I am not a fan of Chicken Wings.  A little carnivorous for me.  I went about 20 years without eating any meat on the bone.  So Buffalo Chicken Pizza is one of my favorites.  All the great Buffalo Chicken WIng flavor without the bones!!

Step 1. Boil Chicken and Prep the Buffalo Chicken Sauce

While the Chicken is boiling I make Buffalo Chicken Wing Sauce:

Melt one stick butter in pan

add and mix well:buffalo chicken wing sauce

  • 1 teaspoon Granulated Onion Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Granulate Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper (for mild, for my hot sauce I use 3 Tablespoons)
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce (for the hot sauce I use 3 Tablespoons)
  • 1 Jar or Frank’s Hot Sauce (it is easy to make but the family likes Frank’s)

Cook the Buffalo Chicken Sauce while the Chicken finishes cooking.  Low heat for 15-20 minutes. Stir/Whisk often.

Step 4. Pizza dough is easy to make but I usually use the fresh dough from Price Chopper.  It is awesome. I pre-cook the pizza dough at 425 until golden.  This keeps the dough from being soggy.
