Chili's Boneless Buffalo Wings
Chili's serves these spicy breaded chicken tenders with celery sticks and blue cheese, just like the famous wings, but without the bone.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 2
- 2 teaspoons salt
- ½ teaspoon ground pepper
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 cup flour
- ¼ teaspoon paprika
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 2–4 cups cooking oil
- ¼ cup hot sauce
- 1 tablespoon margarine
In a medium bowl, combine salt, peppers, flour, and paprika.
In another bowl, whisk together the egg and milk.
Slice each chicken breast into bite-size pieces.
Preheat oil in deep fryer or skillet.
Dip pieces of chicken into the egg mixture 1 or 2 at a time, then into the flour/spice mixture. Repeat so that each piece of chicken is double coated.
When all the chicken pieces have been breaded, arrange them on a plate and chill for 15 minutes.
Drop each piece of chicken into hot oil and fry for 5–6 minutes, or until the breading is golden brown.
In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the hot sauce and margarine. Microwave for 20–30 seconds, or just until the margarine has melted.
When the chicken pieces are done frying, remove them to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
Place the chicken pieces into a covered container. Pour the sauce over the chicken, put the lid on, and shake gently until each piece of chicken is coated with sauce.
You can buy frozen chicken nuggets to make this recipe. Cook according to package directions and then toss in the hot sauce. For a lower-calorie option, use grilled chicken breast.
