How To Make buffalo chicken

    Preheat the grill to 400 degrees. Remove the chicken from the marinade and grill for about 10-12 minutes flipping halfway through the process. Baste with the remaining buffalo sauce to keep it moist and tasty. Chicken is done when the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Cover and let the chicken rest for 10 minutes. Season with kosher salt and black pepper to taste.
