Grab a bottle of your favorite Buffalo wing sauce today and get experimenting with these 10 best ways to use wing sauce beyond the wings. 

  • Potato Chips

As long as you have a bag of chips and a bottle of your favorite Buffalo sauce (we suggest sticking with the classic flavor combo of garlic-parmesan here), you’ve got a crowd-pleasing appetizer. Just serve the chips with a side of sauce for dipping and nobody will realize you threw it together at the last minute. 

  • Buffalo Chicken Pizza

DIY your own pizza or order a plain pie from your favorite pizza place—we’re gonna turn that blank canvas into a masterpiece. Toss some thinly sliced cooked chicken breast (deli slices will even do in a pinch) with your favorite Buffalo sauce, then layer it over the pie. Whether you prefer ranch dressing or bleu cheese (or both!), don’t forget to grab your favorite dip and dig in!

  • Popcorn

The subtle flavor of popcorn is just begging for a kick of flavor from your favorite medium or spicy wing sauce. Just a light drizzle is all it takes to give your favorite movie snack next-level flavor. 

  • Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Keep it simple and spread a thin layer of Buffalo sauce inside your sandwich before you throw it in the skillet with some butter or level up and add some grilled chicken breast or sliced turkey. This is one stick-to-your-ribs sandwich that’ll hit the spot every time. 

  • Buffalo Cauliflower

Swap the chicken wings for cauliflower florets for a vegetarian-friendly, healthier alternative to traditional chicken wings. Dredge the florets in flour and wing sauce before baking, frying, or air-frying and serve alongside celery, carrot sticks, and your favorite dipping sauce and don’t be surprised if your guests can’t believe it’s not chicken. 

  • French Fries

Wing sauce and french fries are one dynamic duo that doesn’t get nearly enough attention. Swap wing sauce for ketchup and start dipping, or make it a meal by drizzling wing sauce over fries before piling them high with scallions, blue cheese crumbles, and chopped bacon. Serve with a side of ranch for your favorite wing flavors in an unexpected new package. 

  • Chicken Kebabs

If you’re looking for a fancier twist on classic chicken wings, try seasoning chicken kebabs with your favorite Buffalo sauce. Serve with a side of bleu cheese for an hor d'oeuvres that’ll conquer any crowd. 

  • Mac and Cheese

This classic childhood favorite is totally on trend right now, with restaurants and top chefs putting their own twists on it. Whether you start with your ya-ya’s secret recipe or grab a box from the grocery store shelf, make it your own by mixing in your favorite Buffalo, some shredded chicken, and some blue cheese crumbles. 

  • Buffalo Dip

From Buffalo chicken dip to Chicken wingmaster dip, combine your favorite chicken wing flavors into a dippable side dish that’s perfect for game day (or any day). 

  • Wings (Duh)

Whether it’s mild or spicy, fruit-flavored or garlic-packed, there’s no denying that chicken wings are the GOAT vehicle for delivering your favorite wing sauce straight to your taste buds.
