Confession number 1: I can eat hot wings every single day!
I love everything about hot wings! It is no exaggeration when I say that I could literally eat them every day! Problem is... I'm not 18 anymore and I've got a wedding dress to fit into in less than a month! So sadly for me and my local Buffalo Wild Wings I cant! But! These are my perfect solution to the every so yummy, deep fried buffalo wings!
4 Tablespoons Olive (or other besides vegatable and canola) oil
1 Lb Boneless, skinless chicken breast/tenders
2 Tablespoons Garlic Powder
3 Tablespoons Paprika
2 Tablespoons Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1/2 Tablespoon Salt
1 Tablespoon Pepper
1/3 cup hot sauce (I prefer Franks with this recipe!)
(Obviously you can add to or omit the Red Pepper Flakes and Hot Sauce to your desired heat!)
(If you are using whole chicken breast you will trim the fat, slice and shape each breast into multiple tender shaped pieces. I am aware they sell boneless skinless tenders already..But! I am cheap, and some times they are almost $2 per pound extra at my grocery store! I also cook the trimmings for dog treats!)
Take your chicken tender pieces and place them in a gallon sized bag. Add oil (I use avocado oil) to the bag and shake to coat each piece. Then dump all the seasonings into the bag. Shake bag around until all pieces are coated, and are red in color.
Let the chicken rest. (This is where I put the zip lock bag into the fridge and drink a glass of wine!) for 30 minutes to an hour. Grab a nonstick frying pan and turn the heat on medium! Place the tenders in the frying pan (there is no need for additional oil!) and cook on each side for about 3 minutes. Once each side is cooked I turn the heat on high to seer each side. After the chicken is fully cooked I add my hot sauce to the pan and allow the sauce to coat the chicken fully.
You have awesome buffalo chicken! I often use this recipe for shrimp instead of Chicken as well!
For sides I use whatever fresh fruit I can get my hands on, and a light salad!
