Oven Fried Buffalo Chicken Strips
Like buffalo chicken strips aren't good enough, now they're actually pretty good for you. No deep fried chicken here, nuh uh.
We've taken a family favourite and made it oven fried to make it as guilt free as possible. Enjoy!
1 lb. chicken tenderloins
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. Freshly ground black pepper
3/4 c. melted butter, divided
1/2 c. Buffalo hot sauce
1 c. all-purpose flour
2 c. panko bread crumbs
Ranch or blue cheese dressing, for serving
DIRECTIONS: 1. Preheat oven to 400º. Season chicken with salt and pepper, then pour ½ cup melted butter onto a rimmed sheet pan. Set aside. 2. In a shallow dish, add remaining ¼ cup butter and hot sauce and stir to combine. Add flour to a shallow baking dish and bread crumbs to another. Coat each piece of chicken in flour, then hot sauce mixture, then bread crumbs. Press bread crumbs onto chicken to make sure it sticks. 3. Place chicken in melted butter on sheet pan and bake, 8 minutes. Flip chicken over carefully and continue baking, 8 minutes more. Serve with ranch or blue cheese dressing.
