Buffalo Grilled Chicken
It’s no secret that I love a good barbecue. Sweet and tangy, I love the sticky sauce all over the chicken or ribs that I’m cooking. But sometimes I get bored with barbecue sauce and reach for my favorite Buffalo wing sauce to make Buffalo Grilled Chicken. I’m a hardcore Buffalo wing lover and use a sauce that’s as close to the original from the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY as I can get, which is Nance’s. If you have a special sauce you like to use, that’s your favorite, feel free to substituted that if you like. I had never grilled my wings, but after tasting some at a restaurant, I started grilling my chicken and reaching for the Nance’s.
Better Flavor by First Marinating Buffalo Grilled Chicken
To get the flavor of Buffalo wings all the way through the chicken, I marinated the chicken pieces in the sauce for about an hour. The more you marinate it, the more flavor it has! I love marinating it for a whole day. The flavor is amazing and when basted in some extra sauce, you have the perfect Buffalo Grilled Chicken!
- 3 lbs chicken pieces
- 1 jar Buffalo wing sauce
- 1 plastic zippy bag
- Rinse the chicken and place it in the zippy bag.
- Pour about ½ the jar of Buffalo wing sauce in the jar and seal the bag. Turn to coat the chicken.
- Allow to marinate in the refrigerator at least 1 hour.
- Heat grill to medium-high.
- Grill and baste the chicken, turning occasionally, until no pink remains in the meat.
- Serve hot with extra sauce.
Keeping Costs Down on Buffalo Grilled Chicken
One of the reasons I love Buffalo Grilled Chicken is the cost to make it. I buy chicken leg quarters for $.69 a pound at a local butcher. The meat is juicy and full of flavor. I cook them on a slightly lower heat, just because they are a bit fattier, but all that drips out as they cook. As for the sauce, I buy it on sale for $1.99 for a 12 oz jar. I can get about 6 to 8 chicken leg quarters covered with that one jar of sauce. So, if each person eats a chicken leg quarter, and each chicken leg quarter weighs about ¾ of a pound, I can feed 8 people delicious Buffalo Grilled Chicken for only $6.15. Depending on the side dishes, I can spend $10 to feed 8 hungry people. Not bad at just $1.25 per plate!
