Buffalo Chicken Strips...

There are actually no words to describe how good this chicken is... Make it & you'll see!!

These chicken strips are so full of flavour, you'll hardly believe they're good for you... Make extra & you have the nicest lunch to take to work...I'll just be surprised if you make it to lunch time without eating them!

For the spice mix:

  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika (smoky)
  • 1 tsp paprika (sweet)
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric

Mix all the spices together in a bowl. Simple right?

For the chicken:

  • chicken breast, pounded with a rolling pin to 1/2 inch thickness & cut in strips
  • 1 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • coconut oil

Toss the diced chicken in 1/2 the spice mix until well coated. 
Mix the remaining spices with the almond flour. 
Coat chicken pieces in beaten egg. 
Toss in almond flour mix until evenly coated. 

Place in a heat proof dish, drizzle with a little melted coconut oil & bake for 15 minutes (since we've pounded the chicken into thin strips it cooks really quickly). 

For the glaze:

  • 4 tbsp Franks Original Hot Sauce (Not the one for wings... it has added sugar!)
  • 1 tsp butter

In a large pan, melt the butter with the hot sauce. 
Add cooked chicken, toss until well combined and cook for 2/3 minutes.

Serve with lettuce/side salad/sweet potato chips... But one thing you HAVE to do... Crumble some Blue Cheese over the top! It really adds to it. 

I used about 30g Boyne Valley Blue cheese. If you haven't tried it... DO! It's Ireland's only raw milk blue cheese made from goat's milk and it's incredible!!
