Chicken pairs perfectly with hot sauce. It makes the food much more delicious and impressive. These Buffalo Drumsticks are now one of my favorites. Chicken drumsticks are baked until crispy and cooked through, tossed in hot sauce and butter mixture, and broiled until crispy and golden. Coming out crispy and tangy, this chicken gets both kids and adults hooked. Ready to give them a try?
