Spicy Fun!

I don't usually like spicy things but I've been venturing out and testing my limits. Well, tonights dinner was nothing different. I have never had Frank's Red Hot Sauce and tried it tonight. Boy was it good! It wasn't super burn-your-tongue hot, more of a tasty heat. The cornflakes were a great addition to this meal and definitely made the strips crispy good.

Next time I will probably serve the sauce on the side or will do half sauced and half no-sauce because Joseph definitely didn't like the spicy :) This would be great for parties too! I think I'll cut the strips in half and serve them at Joseph's birthday party as an appetizer.

Buffalo-Style Chicken Strips with Ranch Dressing
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups coarsely crushed cornflakes
  • 1 pound chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch-thick strips
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/3 cup hot sauce (I used Frank's Red Hot)
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce (I used Tabasco)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup fat-free ranch dressing
  • 4 celery stalks, cut into 1/4 x 3-inch sticks
  • 4 carrots, cut into 1/4 x 3-inch sticks
Preheat oven to 400°.

Combine first 6 ingredients in a shallow dish, stirring with a whisk. Place egg whites in a shallow dish. Place cornflakes in a shallow dish. Working with 1 chicken strip at a time, dredge in flour mixture. Dip in egg whites; dredge in cornflakes. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Repeat procedure with remaining chicken strips, flour mixture, egg whites, and cornflakes.

Lightly coat chicken strips with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until done, turning once.

Combine hot sauce, pepper sauce, and Worcestershire in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in butter. Drizzle hot sauce mixture over chicken. Serve with ranch dressing, celery, and carrots.
