Buffalo Chicken Fingers

Buffalo Chicken Fingers 
(just like Rafferty's, but better!)

I have to admit this is my favorite recipe of the week!!!  My family throughly enjoyed these.  We varied it up a little for our one son who doesn't like hot sauce, and instead of tossing his in our homemade sauce we tossed his in honey mustard.  They turned out great too.


Ingredients:
  • 1lb of Chicken Tenders (Or cut up Chicken Breasts into strips)
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp of milk
  • Panco or breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup of Olive Oil (may need to add more oil as you cook....keep oil just to the sides of the chicken, not covering)


Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup of ketchup
  • 1/3 cup of Louisiana hot sauce (or less if you like it milder, more if you like it hotter....this is about a medium)
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 3 tbsp of honey
  • 3 tbsp of maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp of sugar


Directions:

In a saucepan combine all sauce ingredients and on a medium heat bring to a boil while stirring.  Then reduce heat and let simmer on low for 15 minutes.

While sauce is simmering....heat Olive oil in a skillet (about a 2in deep one) on medium to low.  Now place flour on a plate.  In a bowl large enough to dip chicken strips in combine 2 eggs and milk.   On another plate cover evenly with Panco.  One at a time, dip a chicken strip into flour and cover evenly.  Then dip into egg/milk mixture.  Then dip into Panco and cover evenly.  Then place chicken in oil in skillet.  Cook about 8-10 minutes flipping half way through.  Make sure Chicken is cooked through.  Cook the rest of the chicken.

Once all chicken is cooked place in a large bowl, add sauce, and toss.  We only added about 1/2 of sauce and saved the rest to serve as extra sauce at the table for those that like it extra saucy!!!



Great when served with Ranch or Blue Cheese.

Enjoy!!!
