It takes just 7 ingredients and a few minutes to throw together these spicy baked buffalo chicken nuggets. Skip the drive-by and bring the heat home.

We eat a lot of homemade chicken nuggets at home. Kids love them. Grown-ups love them. Everyone is happy. In our house, we like a little heat, so I decided to do a fun twist on my standard chicken nuggets and make a hot sauce version. We love it! Seriously, even the kids.

These can also be frozen unbaked and popped in the oven for busy nights. Add 5-10 minutes to bake time. Drive by and try the homemade chicken nuggets. You might fall in love.

I absolutely love Frank’s Buffalo Hot Sauce. It really is the best. No, they won’t pay me to say this, and I actually have no working relationship with them at all (not for lack of trying). However, I use their hot sauce in a lot of recipes because it really is the best.
