It has been a real long time since I’ve made anything with buffalo chicken. I mean a long time! The time of not having any access to buffalo sauce was so extensive that I have had some serious cravings for it. My favorite brand is Frank's Buffalo Sauce. I love this stuff because it is not only delicious, but it too has little calories and carbs.

So anyway I finally couldn't stand my cravings anymore and got my fix by whipping up these tangy Buffalo Chicken Taquitos. They were incredibly easy and relatively quick to prepare, as I used raw chicken breasts. I described how I cooked the chicken in the next paragraph.  Also, it was a little messy too, but that's what makes cooking, even more, fun! Right? 

Here is my way of how I prepared the chicken. I placed three raw chicken breasts onto a baking sheet and baked them in the oven at 400 degrees F for twenty-five minutes. However, if you are low on time or you just don't feel like doing all of that mumbo jumbo stuff then don't fret because here are some different options. 1. To have a chicken already cooked in the refrigerator. 2. A rotisserie chicken 3. even canned chicken works with this stuff. 

You and your family will enjoy eating these tasty Taquitos for a weeknight supper, or they too would make an excellent finger food for game day.
