Are you looking for an amazing chicken nachos recipe? If so then you have found the PERFECT one! This Buffalo chicken nachos recipe is quickly becoming a favorite in our house when we are having guests over. These chicken nachos were an on the whim recipe that turned out amazing!
After making chicken bacon ranch fries I had left over frozen chicken in the freezer. We do not eat a lot of frozen fried foods in our house, but they sure do come in handy when you are entertaining!
I saw the frozen popcorn chicken in the freezer and knew with a bit of buffalo sauce I could turn those freezer popcorn chicken into tasty boneless chicken wings. However if you know anything about us here at MidgetMomma, we don’t stop at simple. We take it the next step further. So my next step further was these amazing Buffalo chicken nachos!
When making these Buffalo chicken nachos you want to use Frank’s red hot wing sauce or make your own. I prefer using Frank’s though.
I recommend serving these with some blue cheese dressing and celery sticks to help beat the heat of the buffalo sauce. Also feel free to add more cheese, I am totally in the boat that there is no such thing as to much cheese!
