Buffalo Chicken Salad Sliders

June 25, 2015
Typical chicken salad gets kicked up a notch with buffalo hot wing sauce, diced celery, and seasonings. These are awesome for lunches and make amazing party appetizers, too!

I believe I've mentioned before my weird thing with hot wings and pregnancy. I don't know what it is. In my normal state, I can't stand the taste of hot sauce - no clue why. But the minute I'm pregnant, even through morning sickness and heartburn, I can't get enough of the flavor! 

It's mainly the heat - I honestly can't stand spicy food at all. It actually makes me mad when I bite into something that smells so wonderful, only to be hit with pain in my mouth - I don't get it! My anger is usually directed at Paul, who is usually trying to do a nice thing and make dinner for us, but decides to up the spice factor. Do not mess with a mama who's hungry, that's for sure!!

But when I'm pregnant, my tolerance I guess is way higher than normal for spicy food and I'm actually able to taste the hot sauce. It's SO AMAZINGLY good! It's like, what in the heck am I thinking the rest of the time - hot wings are awesome.

This Buffalo Chicken Salad is really, REALLY good. If you're looking to change up your normal mayo and onion chicken salad routine, this one is definitely the recipe. You can certainly up the amount of hot sauce if you like it spicier, I thought this was the perfect combination - my kids even liked it. Win-win!

    That is so funny Sammie - and I am the opposite with spicy things right now! It makes sense though, with all my heartburn you'd think I'd want nothing to do with spicy foods haha!

  3. Yes, please. I could eat these sandwiches all day long. I'm a huge hot sauce fan, so you can imagine, they are calling my name! Kristi @ Inspiration Kitchen
