Last night was boneless buffalo wings. Getting the bones out of those little chicken wings is the hardest part of the is recipe. Kidding! They are chicken breasts that have been cut into strips. Here is the recipe:
Buffalo Chicken Wings (boneless)
2 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts cut into 1½ inch strips
1 cup flavored breadcrumbs
½ cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs
3 tablespoons water
1 cup Franks red hot
½ stick salted butter
2 tablespoons Sweet Bay Rays original BBQ sauce
1 tablespoon original Cholula hot sauce
1 tablespoon honey (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium size bowl add water to eggs and beat with a fork eggs until evenly blended and pale yellow. Slowly add flour to eggs mixture. Eggs mixture should be the consistency of thin pancake batter, adjust flour or water as necessary. If you have not done so cut the chicken breasts into 1½ inch strips. Add chicken strips to egg mixture and coat evenly. Now coat chicken with bread crumbs. Let chicken stand while heating a ½ inch of vegetable oil on medium high heat to 350 Degrees (in other words HOT oil). Once the oil is hot CAREFULLY add the chicken using tongs. That oil is hot! Turn chicken over when a nice even deep brown and cook on the second side. Don’t over crowd pan with chicken or it will take too long to brown and you wind up with greasy chicken. Remove cooked chicken to a jelly roll pan or cookie sheet lined with paper towels. Don’t forget the paper towels or again you will wind up with soggy chicken. Place the first batch in the preheated oven. Turn the oven off. We are just trying to keep the chicken warm while making the next batch of wings.
Once all the chicken is cooked and in the warm oven. Make the sauce. In a small pot add: Franks red hot, butter, BBQ sauce, Cholula sauce and honey. Heat buffalo wing sauce until all the butter is melted and sauce just begins to simmer. Don’t over heat the sauce.
Serve with: Marie’s blue cheese dressing, celery sticks and carrot sticks. Match with: Sam Adams – Larger, Oktoberfest or Porch Rocker
Till we meet again be well, be happy and have fun!
