Calling all buffalo chicken lovers! And haters! Yes, I'm inviting the haters too. I really do think and believe that everyone will love this garlic bread.

Just in time for Super Bowl Sunday, this garlic bread needs to be on your menu. It is perfect to go along with a main pasta dish, but honestly it's even better placed in the middle of an appetizer table. I have no doubt your people will continue to come back for seconds.

Now, I have long been a fan of buffalo sauce on anything long before it was an annoying trend. Maybe I started the trend? Probably not, but I have shared a hearty handful of buffalo sauce dishes over the years {check them all out below}.

This bread not only looks pretty, but it is pretty darn easily to put together as well. You can assemble it right before baking or feel free to prep it the night before, wrap it up, throw it in the fridge to bake off the next day. That juicy buffalo, garlic goodness will only get better!

I happened to find a yummy King's Hawaiian Sweet Round Bread loaf at my local grocery store, but feel free to use any good quality round shaped bread loaf. A nice, crusty top is always nice as it holds together well, but it isn't necessary.

You can also buy a prepared bottle of buffalo sauce and doctor it up with the fresh garlic, but I have always loved making my own {hot sauce + melted butter}.  

The key here is, make it your own! Bottled or not, this appetizer or side dish to a meal is perfect. For any occasion!

But seriously, make it for the big game coming up.  You can even bake this ahead of time, wrap it up in foil, stick it in the crock pot on warm and take it tailgating with you!  You'll run into friends you didn't even know you had.

Buffalo Chicken Pull-a-Part Garlic Bread

1 loaf King's Hawaiian Sweet Round Bread {or any round bread loaf}
2 c. cooked, shredded chicken
1/2 c. hot sauce
1 stick unsalted butter
1 garlic clove, minced
1 c. shredded Colby cheese
fresh or dried parsley, for garnish

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
2. Using a serrated knife, cut slices into the bread, going ¾ of the way down but not fully through. Criss-cross the slits to make a grid of slices.
3. In a saucepan melt the butter, add in the hot sauce and minced garlic, stirring to combine. Add in the shredded chicken and toss to coat.
4. Carefully pull apart the slices of bread and stuff the buffalo chicken mixture down into the bread. Then stuff the shredded cheese into the bread as well.

5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or just until all is heated through, the cheese has melted and the top of the bread is getting crispy. Serve warm.
