Buffalo Chicken Fries — Crispy fries are loaded with even crispier bite-sized chicken pieces coated in a spicy buffalo sauce and drizzled with a spicy aioli. These quick, easy and delicious Buffalo Chicken Fries are sure to be a crowd pleaser!
Buffalo Chicken Fries
Has anyone ever tries these “World Famous” Buffalo Fries from The Buffalo Spot? I haven’t because they don’t have a restaurant here in Canada, but I’ve seen a lot of photos of those fries and I’ve been dying to try them myself.
Luckily for us both, I have the ability to re-create something in my own kitchen with my own recipe. So now we both can make those World Famous Buffalo Chicken Fries at home that I’m sure tastes just as amazing as the restaurant version.
I know it isn’t football season yet, but these Buffalo Chicken Fries would be the perfect appetizer to make for Game Day. Two of the best appetizers wrapped up into one: Buffalo chicken + Fries = Food Heaven.
This recipe uses restaurant fries, so all you need to do is make the chicken bites which takes absolutely no time or skill at all. Then whip up the spicy aioli that comes together in less than 2 minutes! The perfect party snack/appetizer. I wouldn’t really call this a dinner recipe, but you could totally serve it for dinner if you like.
I wanted this recipe to be as simple as possible, so I went out and bought a large portion of my favourite restaurant french fries.
You can bake up a bag of frozen fries, or you can slice up some potatoes to make your own from scratch. You can also swap the fries out for tater tots, potato wedges, whatever you want!
Crispy Buffalo Chicken
These bite-sized buffalo chicken pieces are extra crispy. The secret to the perfect crispiness is the cornstarch. We start by coating the chicken pieces in a bit of cornstarch. Then we make our cornstarch dipping batter, which is just cornstarch, flour, baking powder, salt, seasonings and water all combined.
Simply dip each chicken piece into the seasoned cornstarch batter, then fry for a few minutes. I honestly couldn’t resist eating a few without the buffalo sauce. They tasted just like McNuggets!
To finish the chicken off, we’re gonna toss them in some buffalo sauce. This buffalo sauce is insanely easy to make and only requires 2 ingredients: butter + hot sauce.
Simply heat the butter and hot sauce together in the microwave until the butter is completely melted. Stir to combine, then pour over the chicken and toss until completely coated.
You can serve the Buffalo Chicken Fries plain, or you can mix together a batch of my easy Spicy Aioli recipe. This aioli only requires a small handful of ingredients you probably have on hand already.
This super flavourful aioli would make the perfect dipping sauce for these Buffalo Chicken Fries, so I highly recommend giving it a try!
I drizzled a teensy amount of the aioli onto the Buffalo Chicken Fries to make them look pretty for the photos, but believe me, they were drenched in the spicy aioli once I was done. It adds so much flavour to the buffalo fries, I couldn’t get enough.
And there you have it, a delicious appetizer that’s easy to make and even easier to eat! Perfect for game day, potlucks, parties or a quick an easy weeknight meal.
