Buffalo Chicken Sliders

Buffalo Chicken Sliders

Recipe adapted from Taste of Home Magazine Feb/Mar 2020.
Buffalo chicken goodness without all the saturated fat or sodium in traditional recipes. Replace the hot sauce, butter, and honey in the original recipe with a bottled "Buffalo Sauce" that surprisingly has minimal to no saturated fat. Just look for brands with the lowest sodium and you got a winner. We went with Stonewall Kitchen Buffalo Wing Sauce which does have some saturated fat, but was the lowest in sodium (that we could find).
One pound of chicken for 12 sliders just was not a lot of meat on each bun so we increased the amount of chicken in the recipe to 1-1/2 pounds which was a much better ratio in our opinion.
