One sign that you absolutely love a dish? You make it three days in a row. Like these Buffalo chicken burgers, that I made… you guessed it… three days in a row! The burgers are so tender, so juicy, and they have just the right amount of spiciness. Packed with celery and carrots, and topped with a wonderful blue cheese sauce, each bite really is like a fantastic chicken wing. But on a bun.
