Easy Baked Buffalo Chicken Thighs







Looking for something easy but Oh So Delicious? After working all day I still don’t mind coming home and whipping up this savory dish! Or you can make it over the weekend and eat the leftovers throughout the busy work-week. I just pulled these out of the oven ? and man did it make for a very happy family. (Which makes this recipe creating mama tickled pink!) My goal for this recipe was to: keep it simple, use inexpensive ingredients that you have around the house and don’t take a bunch of prep, and of course enough meat available for leftovers to enjoy the next day! Hope you enjoy this one as much as we do :)


Easy Baked Buffalo Chicken ThighsEasy Baked Buffalo Chicken Thighs


  • 8-10 Chicken Thighs
  • 1 cup Hot Sauce
  • 1/2 cup melted unsalted organic butter
  • Seasonings: Chili Powder, Black Pepper, Sea Salt, Garlic Powder, and Onion Powder (These will be used to season chicken thighs. I sprinkle each seasoning one at a time on each thigh, on both sides. Feel free to use more or less whatever your taste buds desire.)


  1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Season chicken thighs with all the seasonings and lay skin side down in baking pan.
  3. Mix melted butter with hot sauce then pour over chicken and get them covered.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes.
  5. Remove pan from oven, flip over chicken, and baste with sauce from pan. (Feel free to just take a large spoon, scoop sauce from pan, and pour over each chicken thigh.)
  6. Place back in oven and bake skin side up for an additional 22 minutes.
  7. Remove pan from oven.
  8. Set oven to Broil on High and keep rack in the middle of oven.
  9. Baste the chicken with the sauce from the pan.
  10. Place chicken back in oven and broil for 3 minutes (Or until skin starts to brown/crisp, but be careful they can burn quickly if not too careful. If 3 minutes isn’t enough for desired crispness cook an additional minute at a time watching the chicken very closely so not to burn.)
  11. Take out and serve with a side of baked sweet potato chips and sautéed spinach with kale Yummy yum!!
