I’m so sorry its been so long since my last post. Its been a bit of a crazy time at work. The plus side is that its Saturday and I actually have a real weekend off this week…doesn’t happen often when you work in retail!! I’m hoping to have back to back chicken recipes for you this weekend!!

Today’s chicken recipe is a great snack to bring to a football party, even non-gluten free people will love this one!! I came across this recipe on Sweet Pea’s Kitchen, she has some really delicious looking recipes just waiting to be tried gluten free!! This was my first experiment form her site but I already can’t wait to try a couple others!! I hope there are some buffalo chicken fans out there ready to give this a try!!!

Here we go…Oh yeah GO CHARGERS!!!! :)
