Quick and Easy Skillet Buffalo Chicken

I really like to whip up quick flavorful dinners.  Buffalo chicken is a favorite and I’m always experimenting with making it better.  This time I tossed the chicken in seasoned potato starch and thought it was the ingredient that had been missing. It makes the chicken pieces crisp up nicely and added a depth of flavor beyond the sauce.

It is great served over rice, salad, mashed or baked potatoes, drizzled with bleu cheese dressing and a side of celery.  All the flavor of wings without the prep time or mess.

Skillet Buffalo Chicken Bites

  • 1 lb boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • extra light olive oil
  • 1 cup potato starch
  • 1/4 tsp of each:
    • salt & pepper
    • garlic powder
    • cayenne pepper
    • adobo seasoning
  • buffalo wing sauce
  • bleu cheese or ranch dressing


Lightly coat chicken pieces in oil.  Add spices to potato starch and mix well.

Heat 2 tbsp of oil in skillet. Dredge chicken pieces spiced mixture and add to hot oil. Reduce heat to medium. Flip the chicken pieces as they brown. Once they are browned on all sides, reduce heat. Add buffalo wing sauce and stir until all the pieces are coated. Let simmer on low for 5 minutes.
