Buffalo Grilled Chicken

My guys love buffalo chicken wings. But we can devour a 5 lb bag in one setting! Here is a delicious recipe using chicken breasts and it delivers that great buffalo flavor.

1 T cornstarch
1 tsp seasoned salt
large zip lock bag
2 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup Frank's buffalo wing sauce

Place cornstarch and seasoned salt in zip lock bag and shake to mix. Add chicken, seal and shake to coat. Add wing sauce, seal tightly and knead bag to coat completely. For more intense flavor, let sit at least one hour.

Place chicken on grill and cook until edges are crisp and internal temperature is 165.

Blueberry Muffins

Since there are some fresh blueberries in the freezer, I made up a batch of blueberry muffins!

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup sugar
4 T - 1/2 stick butter
1 egg
3/4 cup + 2 T milk
1 cup blueberries

Preheat oven to 375. Sift flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Stir in sugar. In a separate bowl whisk until just blended butter, egg and milk. (mixture should be slightly lumpy). Add blueberries to bowl and stir them in just enough to combine. Pour into muffin baking pan.

Don't leave this part out!
2T butter
2 T brown sugar
1 T flour
1 T nuts
You can adjust amount to desired amount. Mix together until crumbly. Sprinkle on top of muffin dough before baking.

Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
