Some days call for a bit of heat, some days call for bar food and some days call for a bit of both. I’ve always had a small weakness for Buffalo Chicken, but am not a fan of chicken wings. I know…crazy.
I’m also not a huge fan of difficult recipes, flat recipes or ones that require you us a whole pound of butter. A whole pound, just in the sauce. Well okay, I’m not against butter and we both know this, but there are limits!
So here is what I did!
I got a nice frying pan, a couple of skinless, boneless chicken breasts, a nice sealing bag , measuring spoons, some oil, hot sauce and a bit of butter. Oh and some spices.
Now I must warn you no pictures were taken due to a bad case of the growlies, aka hunger and tasty food being present. I know, naughty me! Shame!
Anyway carrying on:
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp paprika (smoky is best)
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tbsp. oil
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into strips
1/4 cup Frank’s Hot Sauce (Franks is traditional, but use whatever)
1 tbsp. butter
Okey dokey here we go! Get your self sealing bag and mix all those lovely dry ingredients together. Sure you could use. A bowl, but this is so much easier. It smells lovely doesn’t it. Now here’s the kicker, you can add more or less spices as you see fit!
Mixed all nice and happy? Good. Take those chicken breasts and add them to the bag. Squeeze out the air as best you can and shake it all about. Get jiggle with it, or shave tee floats your boat. The idea is to simply get your chicken all coated nice and good, and yeah okay have some fun!
Heat your oil on medium heat and place chicken strips in the pan. We need to cook them because raw chicken… Yuck! While your chicken is cooking dump your hot sauce into a bowl or pan, add the butter and heat. Yep that’s it. Btw I used the microwave to heat it up and them mixed it together. It looks nice and creamy.
Chicken cooked? Good. Dip your chicken, or drowned it if you want, in the sauce and enjoy!
You can always coat your chicken in flour mixed with those spices, dip in egg, coat and then fry if you want. Any way you dice it, it’s yummy!
