Buffalo Chicken Tenders

I'm probably the world's biggest fan of hot wings - and the hotter the better! I'll hit up Hooters and order their spiciest wings, just to feel that burn that I love. It's the same reason I add too much Wasabi to my sushi - I just love spicy foods! Problem is, wings are usually breaded and deep fried - so they're off the weight loss menu. Turns out most of the hormones injected into chickens go through the wings too, so they're the least healthy part of the delicious little birds. Lucky for me, I've found a healthy way around this dilemma!

Buffalo Chicken Tenders

Instead of using the wings, I use the chicken breast to make chicken tenders (no, not the processed crap you get in the store, but strips of real chicken breast). The chicken tenders are incredibly tasty, fairly low in fat, and an excellent way to get my hot wing on in low-fat style!Buffalo-Tenders


  • 1 chicken breast
  • Sesame seeds
  • Wheat germ
  • Nutritional Yeast
  • 1 cup of cornflakes
  • 1 egg
  • Buffalo sauce


With your very sharp knife, slice the chicken breast into strips - as long, short, thick, or thin as you want. (Just remember, thick strips take longer to cook.) Place the sesame seeds, wheat germ, nutritional yeast, and cornflakes in the blender, and grind it up until it's a coarse powder. Crack the egg into a bowl, and whisk white and yolk together. Dip the chicken into the egg, and roll each piece around in the powder mixture to coat it. Add two tablespoons of olive oil into the bottom of a frying pan, and set the chicken tenders in the pan to cook. Turn over constantly, and make sure the "breading" doesn't burn. Heat up the buffalo sauce in the microwave, or use a double boiler if you know how. Once the chicken tenders are cooked, spread that hot, spicy goodness over your tenders, and enjoy them the way God intended them to be enjoyed!   Simple, low fat, and damn tasty! Now, you can get your hot wing fix without worrying that you're overdoing it on the grease, the deep-fried food, or the chicken hormones. I know what I'm making for lunch today!
