Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Eggs
Not to be confused with deviled eggs…these are stuffed eggs. And it means just that. Hard boiled eggs stuffed with a creamy buffalo chicken salad filling. Can’t go wrong with that!
These Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Eggs are going to be a big hit for holiday or party appetizers, but we love making them for a low carb lunch, snack or even a light dinner!
Unlike deviled eggs where you take the yolks out and make a filling to put back inside the hard boiled egg, we’re removing the yolks from these eggs completely. You can save the yolks for another use if you like, maybe even make some deviled eggs too while you’re at it!
What Ingredients Do You Need To Make These Chicken Salad Stuffed Eggs?
All you need for the chicken salad filling is chicken (a rotisserie chicken from the store works great here) mayonnaise, a few seasonings and mild buffalo wing sauce. Let’s not confuse buffalo wing sauce with straight up hot sauce. This is a mild buffalo chicken salad in this recipe, although you can spice it up as hot as you like it.
Cooked, Shredded Chicken: You can use a rotisserie chicken, canned chicken or any leftover chicken that you have in the refrigerator!
Mayonnaise: We like the full fat mayo, which if you’re following low carb diet recipes is usually the best option.
Buffalo Wing Sauce: Again, we’re not talking about straight up hot sauce here. Grab a bottle of spicy or mild buffalo wing sauce at the grocery store to really give you that buffalo wing flavor without being super hot!
Hard Boiled Eggs: Leftover hardboiled eggs after Easter work great in this recipe! Or boil up your own, which only take a few minutes and they’re great for snacking on.
How To Make Hard Boiled Eggs Easy To Peel
There’s a ton of different tips and tricks for making the best hard boiled eggs, where the shells just slips right off. I’ve tried a lot of them, sometimes they work great and sometimes not.
So I purchased an egg cooker from Amazon (*product link at the bottom of the post*) that claimed to make the “best” hard boiled eggs. Well, it worked. I’ve used this gadget, which is only about 20 bucks, time and time again and the eggs are always perfect!
You can use different cooking times and different water levels to achieve a totally hard, yellow yolk or a medium to soft more runny yolk. It really takes the guesswork out of all of it!
Our boys love eating hard boiled eggs too, so it’s great for when they want to make hard boiled eggs on their own, no worrying about boiling water or anything like that.
How Do You Make These Stuffed Eggs?
Unlike a deviled egg where you cut the egg in half, for this egg recipe you cut the top third of the egg off and then get in there and scoop out the yolk. Reserve the yolks for another use, like we mentioned before or discard them. Sometimes we mix some of the yolks into the chicken salad for extra nutrients!
Mix the chicken salad together in a bowl and then start stuffing the eggs! These Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Eggs are super fun appetizers for parties but we like to make them often just to snack on or have a light lunch.
And since these eggs are practically a zero carb recipe…we like to make a lot of them!
Can You Make These Eggs Ahead Of Time?
Yes, you definitely can! The morning of or even the day before is totally fine. Just keep them covered in plastic wrap or in a container until you’re ready to serve. Alternately, you can make the chicken salad, hard boil the eggs and peel them and stuff the eggs right before serving.
