We’re 8 days into 2013 and I decided it was about time for a new buffalo sauce recipe!

I already slathered buffalo sauce all over chicken in my Baked BBQ Buffalo Chicken recipe so I knew I had to mix it up this time. I decided instead of putting the buffalo sauce on the chicken, I would put it IN the chicken!

But then what would go on the outside? Bacon of course.

Searing this delectably meaty dish on the stove, then finishing it in the oven gives it perfectly crisp bacon and deliciously juicy chicken!

I prepared this delectable little dish for myself, but the recipe could easily be doubled or quadrupled to serve 2 or 4!
