This is another awesome recipe from Donna at My Tasty Treasures. One of my son's all time favorite food is hot wings, so this was right up his alley! He loved it. It was perfect served with the mac 'n cheese.
We do't like bleu cheese dressing, so we didn't make it.
Buffalo Chicken Tenders
1 cup low fat buttermilk, divided
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 cup all purpose flour
1 1/2 lbs chicken tenders
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup hot sauce
2 T melted butter
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place a wire rack on a rimmed baking sheet and transfer to oven.
In a medium bowl, stir together blue cheese and 1/2 cup buttermilk. Season dip with salt and pepper and set aside.
Place flour and remaining 1/2 cup buttermilk, in a separate medium bowls. Season flour with salt and pepper. Set out another rimmed baking sheet alongside. Dip chicken in buttermilk (allowing excess to drip off), then in flour (shaking off excess); place on sheet.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high. Working in batches, fry chicken until golden-brown and cooked through, 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to rack in oven to keep warm.
In a large bowl, stir together hot sauce and melted butter. Add chicken and toss to coat. Serve tenders with blue cheese dip.
