There I am searching for some funny Buffalo chicken content when I came across these ridiculous ‘Birds With Arms’ gifs. Mesmerizing and stupid…just my kind of thing.
Dinner should be mesmerizing and most definitely NOT stupid. In these sweltering times, dinner should also be quick, easy, and yummy.
This Buffalo Chicken Salad is just the thing for a hot, busy night. It’s got all of the flavors of a Buffalo wing basket served up on a bed of lettuce. The original recipe called for just the ranch dressing. To please both camps of wing lovers, blue cheese can be added, too.
Buffalo Chicken Salad
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4-inch cubes
2 tablespoons hot sauce such as Frank’s
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 bunch romaine lettuce, chopped (about 5 cups)
2 celery ribs, chopped
1 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup fat-free ranch salad dressing
Blue cheese crumbles
1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sauté the chicken in batches until no longer pink, about 4 minutes.
2. Transfer cooked chicken to a bowl. Stir in hot sauce and pepper.
3. Return chicken mixture to skillet and stir in butter until it melts.
4. On a large platter, combine lettuce, celery and carrots. Top with chicken. Serve with dressing and blue cheese crumbles.

You’re going to have to be in the worst mood not to smile at this cheerful little ditty by London-based band MFC Chicken. Someone make this guy a meal.
Check out MFC Chicken on Bandcamp where you can buy their music. They have so many quirky, hilarious and catchy tunes…I highly recommend a few minutes of your time. “Fuck You, Me” is another of my favorites by them.
