Sometimes it seems like we eat so much chicken at our house that we are all going to start clucking. Don’t get me wrong, I like chicken and it is great lean meat. It can just be a little bland and predictable. We came up with a dish we call Buffalo Chicken Cups Texas Pete Style.
It really all started a couple of weeks ago while I was grocery shopping for a family get together. I came across a whole bunch of sauces I had not seen before. Texas Pete, hmmmmm sounds hot. The test will be my boys who like to eat lava. The buffalo chicken sauce caught my eye because the women in my family tend to like a little less heat. No problem, this dish we came up with can easily be modified to suit individual taste and Texas Pete has a whole line of products to fit the bill.
Here’s how we made everyone happy with one recipe. First we made the recipe below with the Texas Pete Buffalo Sauce. After a little taste testing we modified the amount used to suit the family members who like the milder version. We filled the cups for this group with the original recipe. Now we added heat. Texas Pete Hotter Hot Sauce to be exact. We filled the rest of the cups with the hotter version of the recipe. Even this was not hot enough for one son. No problem. The Texas Pete Hotter Hot Sauce is versatile. We used it as an ingredient for the hotter version and my oldest son added more sauce to his dinner using the hot sauce as a condiment. Everyone was happy.

A quick and easy dish that will please everyone in the family.
1/2 White Onion Chopped
1 Pound Ground Chicken
6 oz Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 Cup Texas Pete Buffalo Wing Sauce
1/3 stick of butter
1 tube of Cresent Recipe Creations Seamless Dough Sheet
several shakes of Texas Pete Hotter Hot Sauce to taste (optional)
Over medium heat saute the butter and onions. When clear pour in the chicken. When the chicken is done ad the Buffalo Sauce. Cook long enough to heat the sauce. (3-5 mins)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut the dough into 8 pieces and place in muffin tin forming cups.
Spoon the cooked chicken and sauce into the cups intended for milder taste (I would call this medium heat)
If hotter entree is desired ad Texas Pete Hotter Hot Sauce now to the pan with the chicken intended for the hotter entree. Remember hot sauce may be used as a condiment to taste as well
Sprinkle shredded mozzarella on top of cups. Bake 15 – 18 minutes until cheese bubbles and dough browns.
Serve and enjoy!
