  • 3 (162g) chicken breasts skinless and boneless
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • salt to taste
  • butter
  • 1 cup (236ml) buffalo hot sauce divided
  • Serving suggestion – ranch dressing, blue cheese crumbles, and celery sticks.


  • Combine onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper and season both sides of the chicken breasts.
  • Mix together melted butter and buffalo sauce, then use two-thirds to brush both sides of the breasts (reserve the rest for later).
  • Preheat grill to medium and oil the grill grates, or heat an oiled grill pan on the stovetop.
  • Grill chicken for about 5–7 minutes per side, basting with hot sauce as it cooks, or until internal temperature reaches 165F / 74C.
  • When done, brush the remaining portion of the buffalo sauce over the chicken, and allow it to rest for a few minutes before slicing and serving.


  • Season the chicken before brushing with the sauce.
  • Watch for flare-ups as you grill the meat and the sauce drips onto the flames.
  • After the meat has cooked, use a clean brush to add the reserved sauce to avoid salmonella contamination. 
  • Discard any sauce that touched raw chicken. 
  • Always cook the chicken to an internal temperature of 165F / 74C. 
  • Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of the chicken. 
  • Storage - store cooked chicken in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • There is just 1 WW Blue Plan SmartPoint in a serving of this.
