These Buffalo Chicken Fries are pretty stellar. Lots of cheese, lots of spicy, buttery buffalo chicken, and a lovely little bright taste from the cilantro too. These would be great for the Superbowl or other sports-related events {that I know nothing about}. Or, just as a late-night snack. So yummy and almost guilt-free because the fries are low cal!!

Buffalo Chicken Fries Recipe

One day for dinner I got lazy and made this recipe! Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Fries. Remember the buffalo phase I went through whilst I was pregnant with this little babe of mine? Well, the need to douse everything in hot sauce and butter has returned. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Frozen Crinkle Cut Fries – Alexia sent me a few bags of their latest and greatest Smart Classics to try just for fun. No this is not a paid post. I just love a good fry, especially one that is a little more on the healthy side.
  • Butter – for flavor and to help the hot sauce stick to the chicken.
  • Hot Sauce – use a hot sauce that you absolutely love for the best results.
  • Rotisserie Chicken – a quick and tasty shortcut. Feel free to cook your own chicken.
  • Provolone Cheese – shredded or a few slices, this brings flavor but also helps tone down the heat.
  • Blue Cheese – the perfect combo to go with buffalo chicken.
  • Cilantro – optional as a garnish.
