Grilled Buffalo Chicken with Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes

I love summer grilling. When the warm weather hits I think we use our stove about once a week and grill everything else. One night I was in the mood for spicy chicken wings, but it was way to nice an evening to sit in a restaurant. I put this dish together on the fly, and it was delicious. This dinner hit the nail of the head. I love the combination of spicy chicken and blue cheese! Quick, easy, and a lot better for you than fried wings. Enjoy!
Grilled Buffalo Chicken
6 chicken boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup hot buffalo sauce
2 1/2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder

In a medium mixing bowl combine all listed ingredients. Cover and place in the fridge 30-45 minutes. Before chicken is finished marinating heat grill. Remove chicken from fridge and grill until chicken is cooked completely cooked. Serve with blue cheese mashed potatoes.

Blue Cheese Mashed Potatoes
1 batch of mashed potatoes
2/3 cup blue cheese

Place large pot of water on stove and bring to boil. Halve the potatoes (it cooks faster and mashes easier) and place in water. When potatoes are easily pierced with a fork, drain water and move to a mixing bowl. Add milk, butter, cream cheese, salt, and pepper. Mix with electronic mixer or by hand with a masher (my personal favorite). While you are mixing the potatoes stir in the blue cheese.
