"My favourite hot sauce is called Frank’s RedHot Sauce and I use it a lot. As the ad for this sauce goes, I put that S#!* on everything. Here is a recipe I came up with to feed just DH and I one evening when we were craving something spicy. I would say this is on the medium hot side. You can make this even spicier by adding more cayenne pepper if you like. I serve this with baked potatoes, I drizzle some of the sauce the chicken was cooked in on them, YUMMY……. For those who don't have access to Frank's RedHot Sauce, I do have a copycat recipe for it #recipe13676 ."

Picked up a large bag of drumsticks a few weeks back which has me trying new recipes to add variety to our meals. We loved these Spicy Buffalo Drumsticks. Recipe has been added to my weekend cookbook because I know my family love that Franks on about everything! Served with a baked potato and a green salad for a great evening meal.
