Reviews for Baked Buffalo Chicken
"Excellent! I used Sweet Baby Ray's Wing Sauce and I did include the tarragon. I also sprayed the rack with olive oil to eliminate chicken from sticking. We will be making this again."
"Excellent!! So much flavor without having to fry! I didn't have time to marinate and didn't use the tarragon and it still had loads of flavor. Will be making again :) Definitely not soggy if you bake it on a rack and no need to turn it."
"I didn't use the tarragon but we thought that the flavor was excellent and didn't have any problems with it being soggy. I used Texas Pete's wing sauce."
"I made this last night for my husband. I thought he would love it. He thought the chicken turned out soggy (with the adding of the additional sauce). He suggested having the extra sauce on the side. The tarragon added a good second flavor."
"I had some trouble getting the bread crumbs to stick but otherwise it came together pretty easy. The flavor of the wing sauce definitely came through, so make sure you have some blue cheese to cool back down!"
"Very good & easy dinner! Didnt have tarragon but the wing sauce made up for it."
"Made this tonight for supper just as written. Was really good. My husband said this recipe was a keeper. I was a bit hesitant of the tarragon but it incorporated well into the flavors. For a change, you could make this into chicken nuggets or breast fillets and make a blue cheese dip for them. Five stars."
