Buffalo Chicken Drumsticks

I promised some buffalo chicken drumsticks, and buffalo chicken drumsticks is what you’ll get!

It’s no surprise that Brent loves everything buffalo flavored so when I went to the store and bought WAY too many drumsticks for just two people, I needed to try a few recipes. After the fail of a lemon rosemary drumstick, and the epic success of the BBQ chicken drumstick, a buffalo recipe was on it’s way.

Actually, I tried 2 different ways of making it. One with Buffalo Hot Sauce and the other with Siracha. So, take your pick! They both turned out great!

 

 

Buffalo Drumsticks

 

Ingredients:

6 Drumsticks 2 Tablespoons Canola Oil
1 Teaspoon Chili Powder 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
Salt and Pepper to Taste

Sauce

2 Tablespoons Melted Butter 1/4 Cup Siracha or Buffalo Sauce
1 Tablespoon BBQ Sauce

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 375 Degrees. Mix the canola oil, chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a bowl. Pour it into a freezer and bag add in the drumsticks. Toss the bag until the chicken is well covered and place them on a baking dish. Make sure there are separated. Bake for 40 minutes.

2. Remove from the oven. Mix together the melted butter, hot sauce and BBQ sauce. Cover the drumsticks with the sauce and bake at 400 degrees for an additional 15 minutes.

And finito!! They were delicious. The extra chili powder and hot sauce really added a second layer of heat to the hot sauces. Brent really liked the buffalo chicken sauce and I really enjoyed the siracha. I don’t think you could really go wrong.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Brent is a big fan of anything buffalo flavored. ANYTHING. If you are staring at a menu, it’s not hard to guess what the man will get. So, I know this is a bit late, but for the Superbowl, I made a buffalo chicken dip with shredded chicken mixed into it. It’s super easy to make, and much healthier than you think!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

 

Ingredients:

1 8oz Package of Reduced Fat Cream Cheese
1 Rotisserie Chicken 2 Tablespoons Buffalo Sauce
Blue Cheese to top it off

 

Directions:

1. Peel the chicken off the rotisserie chicken and shred it into thinner pieces. Mix it with the room temperature cream cheese (just to make it mix in easier). Then add in the buffalo sauce. Add it in to your liking.

2. Put it into a flat pan, I used a pie plate. You can top it with blue cheese. Then bake it for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. You want the top to brown slightly and it to be warmed throughout.

I ended up doing it half and half with the blue cheese and half without because Brent isn’t the biggest fan of blue cheese. The dish was a hit though. It’s very simple, light tasting and over all one of the healthiest buffalo dips. Everyone really liked it and you can really make it as spicy as you would like!

 

If you are having some people over for a movie, a game or anything, this is a great dish. I’m positive this will be a winner because it is healthier for you, and packed with buffalo flavor.

 

What is your favorite dish for game time??

 

I love anything dippy. Chips and dip, veggies and dip. Munchy and dippy for me!

 

Slow Cooked Buffalo Chicken Flatbread

This morning, I woke up at 6 to try out the Jillian Michaels Yoga DVD Workout. Today was supposed to be my rest day after the 7 mile run yesterday. Instead, I wanted to give her DVD a try because it was low impact and yoga does great things for healing muscles. I have also heard GREAT things about her DVD workouts and really wanted to give one of them a go.

I actually really liked it! She has a different take on yoga in the sense that she doesn’t focus on the static movements that many others do. I find yoga to be slightly boring, but Jillian incorporates deliberate movements that target just about every muscle in the body. FOr an early morning workout, it’s perfect. All you have to do is roll out of bed and flip on the TV. Not much to it. And she will DEFINITELY make you sweat.

After the workout, I sat down at the computer for some work. whipped up some breakfast and headed out on the road. For breakfast I indulged in a LOVELY Spinach Protein Smoothie. OH GOOD YUM.

 

Ingredients:

1 Frozen Banana 1 Handful of Spinach Leaves
1/2 Cup Frozen Blueberries 1/2 Cup Almond Milk
2 Full Tablespoons Chocolate Protein Powder

It may not look all the pretty, but it was good. I have been dying to give the spinach deal a try just to see how it went and I really enjoyed it! You will definitely be seeing a few more smoothies with spinach leaves in there!

Work was crazy. I just ran around all day. I also had to deal with some shenanigans trying to find the pups a place to stay on saturday night because Brent and I are going camping with some friends. That was a headache. I got a new dishwasher! Fun! But it’s legit been washing the first load for the past two hours…annnnnnd it’s still going. Mer.

For dinner, I delved into that Slow Cooked Buffalo Chicken and made a little flatbread! Oh and did I do good things! LOVE! It had some spice, and some zest and some SIZZLE! Yup, I said it!

 

Ingredients:

1/4 Cup Slow Cooked Buffalo Chicken 1 Tablespoon Jalapenos
1/4 Slice Muenster Cheese, Shredded 1/4 Cup Mozzarella Cheese, Shredded
Buffalo Saice to Taste 1/4 Cup Onion, Sautéed

Directions:

1. Sautee your onions. Place all of your toppings on your flatbread and bake at 375 for 5-10 minutes depending on how crispy you want it. Enjoy!!

 

 

 

 

 

This was actually very low calorie as well! The bread I used was only 60 calories, and with all of the toppings, we are talking about 200 calories! AWESOME. Now, you obviously need more than that to fill the tank, so pair it with a salad, or in my case…Moose Track Ice Cream!

 

I mean really?! What doesn’t complement something spicy better than something sweet?! Hahaha.

Oh well! I’ve got Tina’s Best Body Bootcamp waiting for me in the morning! She’ll definitely zap the ice cream right out of me.

I was supposed to start the program on Monday, but really needed to get a solid 7 miler in. My plan is to use Tina’s Bootcamp as cross training during my half marathon training. It’s only 6 weeks away! That’s actually terrifying to me. I am only at 7 miles and that’s just a bit over half…Tina’s going to help…I hear she does wonders like that.

What’s your favorite DVD workout?? When do you like to turn them on?? In the morning? Or when you just can’t seem to get the motivation to drive to the gym??

I am really only experienced in Insanity. I LOVE insanity. It gives me no excuses to NOT workout. All you have to do is press play! (I may or may not have stole that line from a Shaun T commercial for insanity)
