Buffalo Thigh Surprise

Here's a delicious, healthier alternative to buffalo wings. Even if wings are cooked in the oven, they have the skin on them which is high in fat. If you do boneless breast meat, you add a lot of carbs with the breading. Boneless, skinless chicken thighs give you a great alternative without the skin, no breading, but still a tender and juicy dark meat that makes chicken wings taste so damn good!

Ingredients:
- 1 package of 6-8 boneless skinless chicken thighs
- 1/3 cup red hot
- 1 Tbsp. white vinegar
- 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper (adjust more or less for your spice preference)
Dash pepper
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Brown the chicken thighs on the stovetop for about 5 -7 minutes. Transfer to a baking dish with cooking spray. Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl and pour over chicken. Cook in oven at 350 for 25 minutes.

Serve with homemade Low Fat Ranch Dressing. I make mine by using the Hidden Valley packets for dip but sub nonfat greek yogurt instead of sour cream. Tonight I served with Simple Herb Roasted Potatoes.
