Steps

    Make boneless buffalo wings. You'll want to thoroughly and evenly apply the sauce as much as possible. If you'd like, you can buy a pre-cooked or frozen version of this instead to save time. A good amount to make is 3 per person for an appetizer or party snack or 5 per person for a meal.

    If needed, cut the buffalo wings into small pieces. Depending on what size your bun will be, this can be anywhere from 1-2 inches to 4-5.

    Make rolls. A good idea is to add a slight pinch of sugar for sweetness, as the bread is meant to dilute the heat of the chicken slightly, and to apply lots of butter on the tops of the bread. A possible substitute is Hawaiian rolls, which are sweet and can come in pre-cut buns.
