I made these for Tadd's birthday and they are wonderful! These were great - better than Chili's! I will be making them again. I changed the recipe from the original - I baked mine instead of frying them. I have already been thinking of other sauces to toss the nuggets in - BBQ, honey mustard, honey, the possibilities are endless.
Chili's Boneless Buffalo Wings--Copy Cat
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 cup milk
1 pound boneless chicken tenders
1/4 cup hot sauce (Crystal or Frank's Louisiana)
1 tablespoon margarine
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Combine flour, salt, peppers and paprika in a medium bowl. In another small bowl, whisk together egg and milk. Cut each chicken tender into 3 pieces. One or two at a time, dip each piece of chicken into the egg mixture, then into the breading blend; then repeat the process so that each piece of chicken is double-coated. When all chicken pieces have been breaded, arrange them on a pan and let rest for 15 minutes. Bake for 15-20 minutes until done.
While chicken bakes, combine the hot sauce and margarine in a small bowl. Microwave sauce for 20-30 seconds or just until the margarine is melted, then stir to combine.
When chicken pieces are done, toss them in a bowl with the hot sauce until thoroughly coated.
Serve with Ranch or Bleu Cheese and celery sticks.
