We're halfway through May and I can already tell you that this summer, the Miller family is going to be BUSY! With 2 elementary-school aged boys and one toddler, these kiddos are active and ready to get outside and play. I'm already tired - HA!

We have so many plans already for summer fun. I'm looking forward to days spent in my vegetable garden, splashing at our local water park, watching fireworks, and catching a movie or two. As far as dinners are concerned, I'm VERY much looking forward to breaking out the grill! I love picking up some chicken or beef, marinating it in the fridge all day with my favorite Frank's RedHot, and handing it to Paul at the end of the night to grill up for dinner. Add some fresh veggies and salad dressing to dip - you can't get any easier than that for dinner!

I get so excited to have parties with my family during the summer, too. It's just such a fun time of year to get everyone together and celebrate! Of course we're planning a typical BBQ this Memorial Day coming up, and I can assure you that these Grilled Buffalo Chicken Calzones will be making an appearance on the picnic table. They are super easy and delicious! I like using chicken tenders to marinate for these because you get more of that delicious buffalo wing flavor in every bite. Using Frank's RedHot will surely make your celebration this summer stand out from the crowd! Yum!

  • 2.5 - 3 lbs chicken tenderloins
  • 12 oz bottle Frank's RedHot Buffalo Wings Sauce, divided
  • 2 10oz tubes refrigerated pizza crust (thin crust)

This is such a great dinner to make when you're short on time during the busy week, but these also make great appetizers! When I made these for my family, I sliced them and everyone stood around and ate them with the ranch dressing in the center of the platter. Perfect!

Frank's RedHot Buffalo Wings Sauce has been my go-to for that classic buffalo wing flavor. It's the perfect combination of flavor and heat, and it pairs so well with grilled chicken during the hot summer months. Frank's RedHot Original is the most versatile sauce that can be used for a wide variety of dish types. Their tagline makes me laugh because it's so true - "I Put That $#!+ On Everything!"
