Buffalo Chicken Tenders That Will make You Drink Water!
I’m a big fan of spicy food. Not only does it taste great but studies have shown that it helps you fill up fast, raises the temperature of your body which helps with weight loss and will make you drink a lot of water which will make you feel full. This Buffalo Chicken tenders recipe is very hot and tasty so use at your own risk. Make adjustments to the ingredients as you see fit to control how much spice these have. I have made adjustments to the original recipe to make it paleo friendly.
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into finger-sized pieces
1/4 cup Almond flour
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup Flax Meal
2 egg whites, beaten
1 tablespoon water
1/4 c melted Kerry Gold Garlic Butter (regular is fine if you can’t find garlic)
1/2 c Frank’s Red Hot Sauce (paleo friendly, my favorite. Here’s a recipe for a paleo hot sauce you can substitute if you wish)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Coat a baking sheet with a nonstick spray.
In a bag, mix together flour, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. On a plate, mix the flax meal with the rest of the garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and salt.
Shake the chicken pieces with the seasoned flour. Beat egg whites with 1 tablespoon water, and place egg mixture in a shallow dish or bowl. Dip seasoned chicken in egg mixture, then roll in the seasoned bread crumb mixture. Place on prepared baking sheet.
Bake for about 8 minutes in the preheated oven. Use tongs to turn pieces over. Bake 8 minutes longer, or until chicken juices run clear. Mix together butter and hot sauce, dip tenders on all sides in sauce. These go great with sweet potato fries.
