Instructions

  • Place the chicken thighs into a Ziploc bag or a bowl. Set aside.

  • Preheat the oven to 425ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or tin foil. 
  • Place the chicken thighs flat on the lined baking sheet and bake the chicken thighs for 10 minutes. 
  • Remove the chicken thighs from the oven and brush the chicken thighs with the remaining buffalo sauce. 
  • Place the chicken back into the oven for an additional 10 minutes. 
  • Turn the oven to broil and broil the chicken thighs for 1-2 minutes or until the top of the chicken thighs begin to caramelize. 
  • Remove the chicken and make sure the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165ºF. 
  • Let the buffalo chicken rest for 10 minutes and then serve with a side of ranch/blue cheese and your favorite sides.
