What is Buffalo Chicken?

Buffalo sauce is said to have been first created at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York in 1964 by Teressa Bellissimo.

The secret behind the irresistible flavor of buffalo chicken lies in the perfect blend of hot sauce (usually Frank’s Red Hot), butter, and various spices that give it that signature tangy heat.

It was originally used to coat deep-fried chicken wings, creating the popular dish known as buffalo wings. Today, buffalo wing sauce is used in a variety of ways, including as a dip, marinade, and flavoring for various foods. 

This recipe makes just the perfect amount of Buffalo chicken and could be used in a hearty sandwich or a pizza topping. Buffalo chicken is sure to satisfy your cravings for something bold and savory.

Substitutions and tips for Buffalo Chicken Hand Pies

  • Use shredded rotisserie chicken instead of cooking your own chicken breast.
  • Use crescent rolls instead of biscuit dough.
  • Use prepared pie crust or store-bought pie dough instead of biscuit dough. You’ll need to use a round cutter. The football hand pies will be more reminiscent of buffalo chicken empanadas.
  • You could cook your chicken breast in a pressure cooker or Instant Pot.
