Buffalo Chicken Tenders

Buffalo Chicken Tenders

(This recipe serves 4-6 people)

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 boneless chicken breasts
  • Grass fed butter
  • Organic hot sauce
  • Salt & pepper
  • Olive oil

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Pound out the raw chicken breasts with a meat mallet until they are about ¾”-1” thick.
  • Next, cut the chicken breasts into strips about 1-2 inches wide.
  • Coat all of the chicken lightly in olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  • Bake in oven for about 30-40 minutes or until cooked through. (I used an elevated baking rack to ensure an even cooking process.)
  • In a small sauce pan, combine about 1 cup organic hot sauce with 2 tablespoons grass fed butter over medium-low heat.  Stir occasionally until well combined.
  • When chicken is fully cooked, toss a few pieces at a time using tongs in the hot sauce mixture and place on a serving plate to rest.  The butter will help the sauce stick to the chicken.
  • Once all of the chicken is coated it is ready to serve!
