I like this recipe because it’s a healthy twist on typical buffalo chicken wings, which I obsess over, and it’s so much easier and less messy to eat. It’s of course gluten and dairy free and delicious. So as you settle in to watch the Final Four, which only 2 people in 6 million predicted on ESPN brackets, try this recipe so when the games are over you can still get off the couch.
This is fast easy meal that can have your tongue tingling. It uses cooked chicken, home fries and kale. It only took a little longer to make this than it took for the potatoes to cook. You can even shorten that time too.
Now the most important part of this recipe is the wing sauce. Find one you like the best. I used Wing Time and loved how it was thicker and clings to the meat. Amazon has The Ultimate Wing Sauce Collection – Wing-Time Buffalo Wing Sauce – Three Pack or you can get them separately, Wing Time Medium Buffalo Wing Sauce, Wing Time Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce, Wing-Time, Super Hot Wing Sauce. I’ll warn you the super hot will have smoke coming out your ears but the medium passed the “I hate hot foods test” by someone in our house.
Buffalo Chicken Hash Recipe
This list is per serving.
1 large potato
1/2 cup cooked chicken
1-2 tsp buffalo wing sauce
1 green onion sliced on angle
1 kale leaf rough chop
Course Sea Salt
Course cracked pepper
Wash and cut up your potato into whatever shape you like. I like fat wedges and get 6 per potato. Toss them in olive oil, sprinkly with the salt and pepper and place on cookie sheet. Bake in a 425 degree pre-heated oven for 20-30 minutes or until they start to brown. Quick TIP: Cut a small slice off the tip of your potato, stand it on it’s end and use an apple wedger for quick fries. I cut the core piece length wise in half.
Now for the chicken you have many options. I had some buffalo chicken wings I had frozen. I do this with my leftovers right away. I don’t like them the next day, but at a time in the future. I pulled just the meat off the bones and mixed in Hot buffalo wing sauce. Then I reheated it in the microwave. You do the same with any cooked chicken. If you are starting with uncooked chicken slice it thin and cook it up in a skillet, then mix in the sauce once cooked.
To assemble place your potatoes on the bottom, toss the kale on next, spoon on the chicken and sprinkle with green onion.
You choose how hot your wing sauce is but I like it hot. I also have very hot and that really sets my tongue on fire. I used Wing Time sauce which is a little thicker than Franks. I found it at Whole Foods. Gfree Foodie reviewed this product. They have a mild version which is great if you like the taste but not the heat. You can also make your own sauce.
You can also change up the way you serve the potatoes. You can cut your potatoes into cubes or shred them and cook it up in a skillet. This dish has so many options so create it in a way that suits you best. To keep it vegetarian sub out the chicken for tofu, lentils, beans or polenta squares all seasoned with the buffalo wing sauce.Print This Recipe
Wow. I have got to introduce you to my daughter. She is obsessed with wings, too. In fact, your Buffalo Chicken Mini Burgers have become a weekly thing at our house for her snacks. This dish combines her wing obsession with another favorite, kale. Anything with potatoes as the base has got to be good. We are so going to have this soon.
With your love of "all things Buffalo," it's surprising that you are actually from PA. 😉 You know I'm a wimp when it comes to spiciness/hotness, but this does look mighty tasty. 🙂 Too cute on passing the "I hate hot foods" test … hmmm, maybe there's hope for me after all, Diane!
I LOVE wings! We make them every few weekends with the pastured chicken wings I get in my Meat CSA. This looks like an awesome alternative (and much cleaner on my face, ha!).
I love this recipe Diane! My husband loves chicken wings, and now all sorts of ideas are swimming through my head!
Yum!! This looks really delicious and simple to make. We really like Bone Suckin' sauce but we can't have it due to citrus. I'll have to check out your suggestions.
Really, all I can say is yum. This is so right up my alley. I, too, am obsessed with chicken wings. Truthfully, I think it's really just the sauce that makes me swoon. I say that because I make a Buffalo Tofu dish that I love as much as wings, so it makes me think it must be the sauce. I think I'd rather follow your recipe because when I make my version, the amount of butter would choke a horse and undo all the good work I do at the gym in a week. Again, yum. I've already printed it and added it to the queue! Thank you Diane!!!
Made this last night and it was wonderful!! My husband loved it, too!
Julie that's great. So glad it was a hit. Thank you for sharing. I'm thinking I could eat this once a week. I love that spicy sauce.
What a healthy alternative to chicken wings! It's fast, simple and a great idea for a Friday night, take it easy dinner. Shall certainly try this one!
I'm so fascinated by this recipe Diane! I've never had anything like it but it looks like something I would LOVE! I hope I can try it out soon 🙂 But for now, I've added it to My Favorite Recipes from Last Week post. Thanks! ~Aubree Cherie
Diane, this looks GOOD! Back in the day, husband and I would eat buffalo wings like it was going out of style. Not so much anymore, but we still love the flavor. Should bring it back with this!
Technically chicken disches aren't vegetarian, but I'm sure its good. 😉
Anne you are correct but I do give lots of vegetarian options if you don't want to cook with chicken. Our favorite is to use polenta fries. Are you vegetarian? What would you call the vegetarian version of this dish?
