Buffalo Style Chicken Breasts w/ Bleu Cheese Sauce

There are very few things that I would not put Buffalo sauce on. I love the flavor and all the varieties of it. I have made all sorts of buffalo recipes, including one of my favorites the Buffalo Chicken Mac’N’Cheese Casserole. That recipe was some serious comfort food, but this recipe is a bit fancier and not so hard on your arteries. It is a good idea to grill the chicken for this recipe, but you can also bake it if you do not have access to a grill. I baked it when I originally cooked it.

I got this recipe from Bobby Flay, from Food Network. The buffalo glazed give the chicken a bit of spice and the bleu cheese dressing cooks it down. It is just like your favorite chicken wings, but made a little healthier and dressed up a bit.
