Buffalo Chicken Strips


Looking for a quick and easy meal to whip up?  School is starting soon and with school starting brings late nights full of homework and sports events and scouts and music lessons. You name it, it all begins with the beginning of the school year.  I know I appreciate a quick and easy recipe to get dinner on the table for those evenings we are running around like a chicken with our head cut off (no pun intended).  I came across this one when I was going through all of my old foodie recipe magazines and me being a sucker for anything buffalo chicken related knew that I had to whip this up and quick!  Bonus - I had all of the ingredients on hand and you will too most likely!

Buffalo Chicken Strips
Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:
  • 1/3 cup hot sauce (I used Franks)
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter, melted (I didn't say this was a low-fat recipe!)
  • 1 Tbsp. honey
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken tenders or breast halves, sliced length-wise into 1/2-inch wide strips, seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil, divided
Instructions:
  1. Whisk together hot sauce, butter, and honey in a large bowl.
  2. Toss chicken strips with flour in a large resealable plastic bag until coated; shake off excess flour.
  3. Heat 2 Tbsp. oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat; add half the chicken strips, saute until browned, about 2 minutes per side, then transfer to hot sauce mixture and toss to coat.  Repeat with remaining oil and chicken strips.

  1. These look great. My husband used to love Frank's. I haven't bought it in ages though. I should find something good and spicy to make for him this week. :)

  4. These look great! I have an 11 year old who adores chicken wings so I'm sure he'll love this recipe! The hotter the better in his way of thinking! He's much more adventurous than I am when it comes to spicy foods!! :)

    These would be a great weeknight meal idea ... although we don't go back to school and extracurricular sports/Scouts for another 5 weeks!!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!
