    Yummy Yummy Yummy! I used boneless chicken thighs because that was all I could find. They turned out so good and spicy! They didn't taste like they could possibly be healthy - but it was only 8 points plus for two thighs! I actually felt like I was getting to eat buffalo wings. I served these with celery sticks and light ranch on the side. They also make excellent leftovers!

    I loved this dish. Very easy to put together. Used baby Yukon potatoes and this turned out great! Even my kids devoured it. Will keep in rotation.

    My family loved this!!! Will be making it again. Was wonderful with the Buttermilk-blue cheese smashed potatoes. Also served celery sticks.

    Served for boxing night; the fight outcome was awful, but the chicken got raved reviews :) Will def. make again and again. Served w/ the CL buttermilk-blue cheese smashed potatoes (which were also delish.) and sauteed green beans.

    These were really good. I only had 6 chicken thighs so I was able to fit all of them in my large cast-iron skillet and then put that directly in the oven to cut down on the dirty dishes. My husband and I like spicy food so I added extra red pepper to the flour mixture. Very easy to make and it does taste like buffalo chicken wings. I could see using this preparation on chicken breasts also. Served with the blue cheese mashed potatoes and raw celery and carrots. We will definitely make this again!

    We made this recipe last night, and very much enjoyed the hot sauce combined with the chicken thighs. That said, I think that the recipe has the potential to be a LOT better. I say this due to the fact that my chicken came out of the skillet nice and crispy and gorgeous, but when I transferred to the jelly roll pan for a finish in the oven, all that locked in juiciness from the thighs seeped out and made the crisp coating become soggy. The hot sauce was super easy to make and it really tasted like hot chicken wings at your favorite bar. We will make these again, but I likely will just cook off in the oven first and then pan fry second to maintain crispy outer coating right before tossing in the sauce. The blue-cheese smashed potatoes that are recommended to go with these are also reviewed (1 star - don't intend to make again). Definitely serve with fresh celery sticks and next time, we will make a refreshing coleslaw to go along with the chicken instead of the potatoes.

    Very good, very nice with the blue cheese potatoes. It was a little too hot for me so next time I will use a little water with the hot sauce. It was very quick and easy to make.

    Made this with boneless, skinless chicken thighs as that was what we had on hand, and cooked then completely on the stove top. From there on followed directions. We LOVE this, have made it several times, always with the smashed potatoes (using a little extra bleu cheese!). Its a go-to comfort-type food for us.

    I loved these but I had to spice it up a bit as I thought a little bland. I added smoked paprika and onion powder = we thought it turned out really tasty.

    These were an excellent alternative to buffalo chicken wings (and so easy!). I made a couple alterations to the cooking method and they came out great! I only used 6 chicken thighs instead of 8. I floured them just as the recipe called for, but then just seared them in a pan with olive oil to get a crust on them (about 45 sec each side) rather than cook them longer in the pan. Then I put them on a broiler pan, and cooked them in the broiler (4 min each side). After they were done broiling, I brushed the sauce over them, stuck them in the broiler for about 45 seconds, flipped them over, brushed the other sides with the remaining sauce and popped them in the broiler for an additional 45 sec. They came out perfectly cooked and juicy with a nice crispiness to the outside. Served with a basic romaine salad and celery sticks with ranch/blue cheese. Would definitely make again!

    Beware, the nutritional information provided with this recipe is per thigh and NOT per serving (2 chicken thighs).

    This recipe has become one of my family's favorites and a go to recipe for me. It is delicious and very easy. I do change a couple of things slightly- I have a large pan that I am able to brown all the thighs at once, and it is a stove to oven pan, so when it is time to bake the thighs I just put the pan in the oven (fewer dishes that way as well!). I also put the hot sauce/butter combo on the thighs before baking them. They are delicious! I have done these with boneless skinless thighs as well and those work great too! All around a terrific recipe!

    This is a delicious substitute for the real buffalo wings and it's low fat! I used Crystal's buffalo sauce (which doesn't have many calories compared to other brands) instead of regular hot sauce. I will definitely make this again, especially during football season! :)

    I did a few things wrong with this recipe but it still turned out great. Used chicken wings instead of thighs, and taking the skin off was too much a chore so I left it. I also had less than 1 teaspoon of Tabasco left (panic!) so used Sambal Oelek instead. I was really scared to taste, but it turned out great! I was pretty convinced I'd done something wrong, since they don't look like much going from the skillet to the oven, and then coming out...but once you toss them in the sauce, it looks more like the picture. My husband's compliment :"it tastes just like Hooters!". I'm thinking to try this with boneless, skinless breasts next time.

    Easy and delicious! I made this with boneless and skinless chicken thighs. Added cayenne and extra garlic powder to the flour mix as suggested. After tossing with the sauce, I seared each side for 1 minute in the saute pan to crisp up a bit. Very tasty and I will definitely make it again

    These were just ok and difficult to eat for leftovers as the "crust" gets soggy. Probably won't make again.
