With the Super Bowl just around the corner, I’ve been thinking of game-day appetizers and party dips to serve during the big game this year. And, while I was compiling my list of all the snacks I wanted to make, I was reminded of how many delicious ways you can enjoy buffalo chicken. 

And while buffalo chicken and the Super Bowl go hand and hand, it doesn’t mean that it always has to be about the appetizers, we can enjoy it all year long for quick lunches and easy dinners.

Of course, nothing compares to spicy and gooey buffalo chicken dip but when my family is craving that delicious buffalo flavor we turn to buffalo chicken pizza and buffalo chicken pasta (we love this recipe from The Recipe Critic).

However, there are so many ways to cook up this popular saucy flavor. So, I thought I would share some easy recipes when you are in the mood for some hot and spicy buffalo chicken. These recipes would be perfect not only to enjoy during the big game but also at tailgate parties, potlucks, picnics, or as a fun weeknight dinner idea.
