Grilled Chicken

Marinade the chicken, and grill at medium high heat for 8 minutes each side and then brush both sides with buffalo sauce, cook another minute, baste both sides again and cook for 1 more minute.  Let sit for a few minutes before cutting into slices for salad.

Buffalo Sauce

Melt butter in small sauce pan and add garlic. Let butter melt and garlic simmer until fragrant.  Add sauce, and stir until sauce is warm.

Salad
