Our Christmas break is winding down over here. My goodness it feels like the longest break ever. It’s been wonderful but I seriously cannot believe it’s still going on! What day is it?! Heck if I know. We are wearing pajamas until 10 am and the kids are eating cereal at 1 pm. Don’t judge me. Like I said, I don’t know what’s going on over here.

The good news is that the end of the holidays mean I’m getting back on track with my recipe posting. Hallelujah! Today’s recipe is one I’ve been thinking about for a few months. It’s a beautiful marriage of two of my family’s favorite things. Breakfast + (you guessed it) buffalo chicken.

Is it spicy? Nope. I know the bright orange color may throw you. But really nobody will be burning their tongues on this one. To amp up the heat just drizzle extra Frank’s Red Hot Original on top when serving.

Have you cooked with Frank’s Red Hot before? The ingredient list is nice and short. Just cayenne red peppers, distilled vinegar, water, salt, and garlic powder. Simple, right? Yet it packs a big punch.

Now let’s get cooking.

Onion and celery is diced and sautéed in a bit of olive oil. Once softened just spread it around and add your cooked shredded chicken.

Now it’s time to get the egg mixture ready. Whisk the eggs with Frank’s Red Hot Original and a few seasonings. Pour this all over your chicken and place the skillet in the oven.

That’s it! A little green onion is a lovely garnish to help break up all the orange but it’s totally optional. Finely chopped cilantro would also work great.

Give it a try and let me know if it appeals to your buffalo chicken lovin’ heart!
