Buffalo Chicken Tenders with Wingers Copycat Sauce

Buffalo Chicken Tenders…with Copycat Wingers Glaze and Buttermilk Ranch Dipping Sauce….

 I LOVE Buffalo Chicken. But I like the sauce to be a bit hot and a bit sweet. After some trial and error, I think I have the perfect, delicious Super Bowl Party food!  These Buffalo Chicken Tenders are soooo yummy! They will really be a crowd pleaser…and they are not hard at all. You probably have all of the ingredients at home right now, except maybe for Franks Hot Sauce and Buttermilk.

Yummy Buffalo Chicken Tenders….Perfect for  A SUPER BOWL PARTY FOOD! wOO hOO!

Well My class voted on who would win the SUPER BOWL this Sunday, and it looks like 49ers have it. Losers have to
do 12 push ups. I hope I don’t lose again, like last year. Those push ups get harder to do every year! Anyway….Hope you have fun on Super Bowl Sunday watching the game. 

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 egg
1/2 cup buttermilk 

2 chicken breast fillets cut into 1/2 inch strips OR 8 to 10 chicken tenders


2 ingredients I had to purchase to make the Buffalo Chicken Tenders…Buttermilk for the dipping sauce and
Franks Red Hot Sauce for the Buffalo Glaze on the Chicken….

I used a leftover chicken breast sliced into strips  and some purchased chicken tenders for this recipe…..

Wash and pat dry the Chicken Tenders before breading them….

Combine flour, salt, peppers, and spices in a bowl. Whisk together egg and buttermilk in another bowl. Dip chicken pieces in buttermilk/egg mixture first and then roll into the flour mixture. 
Dip chicken strips into the buttermilk and egg mixture….then dredge into the flour and spice mixture….
Flour and spice batter for dredging the  Buffalo Chicken Tenders in after dipping in the buttermilk egg mixture.  

 Set the plate of chicken tenders in the fridge for 30 minutes. Heat up a frying pan with oil  (1/2 inch in pan) and add a few Tablespoons of real butter just before frying. It makes the flavor better. Then fry chicken a few minutes on each side till it’s golden. 

Lay fried chicken pieces on a napkin to soak up excess oil. Then mix up your Buffalo Wing Sauce. 

Put the Franks Hot Sauce into a pan and add the brown sugar and real butter…..mix it up!  That’s it! 

 Then pour it over the fried chicken or toss in a large salad bowl with the chicken….either way works great.

I read this cool review on taste testing the top 4 rated hot sauces to decide which one to buy for my sauce recipe. Here it is from Serious Eats.

All 4 hot sauces were in my local market but this is the one recommended by Serious Eats! 

Boneless Buffalo Wings Glaze (like Wingers)

1/2 cup Franks Louisiana Hot Sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar (or use 1/3 cup if you like heat more than sweet)
2 Tablespoons Real Butter

 This is very similar to the flavor of Wingers Buffalo Wings….very sweet and a hint of heat.

Dipping Sauce for Veggies & Boneless Wings 

1/3 Cup Greek Yogurt
1/3 Cup Ranch or Blue Cheese Salad Dressing
Mix it up and use for a great dipping sauce

All I do for dipping sauce is mix half greek yogurt (plain) and half ranch dressing or blue cheese dressing depending
on who loves which dressing! My hubs is a blue cheese man. I love the ranch flavor.

Put celery, cucumbers, red peppers, carrots out in bowls to dip with your Boneless Buffalo Chicken Tenders with Wingers Copycat Glaze 

This would be a perfect football game food or a party appetizer of any kind. How about for the Super Bowl? Yum. Dig in!
