My teenage daughters are obsessed with anything "buffalo" sauced.
The other night I came up with a super simple idea to make a riff on the traditional "Sloppy Joe" that everyone remembers; use Buffalo sauce instead of ketchup.
I also lightened it up by using ground chicken breast, which in itself can stand up to bold flavor additions.
It's got a kick to it, but is not too spicy even for the younger ones due to the addition of Ranch dressing in the sauce and also driz
