So I found this website from my lovely friend Miranda :) Hungry-girl.com takes all the bad food in our lives and gives us healthier options. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal, right? This is the first recipe of HG's that I found and really just wanted to make. The ingredients are simple, the preparing and cooking fast, and let's face it buffalo wings ARE amazing. I have changed the recipe to fit my own needs and feel that it needs more tweaking. Maybe I should of followed hers first and then changed it, who knows.
However, after making this dish it doesn't remind me of boneless buffalo wings. I'd still rather take in the extra calories and fat at Buffalo Wild Wings instead of eating this replacement. It was good, but not enough of the wing experience for me and I have a feeling the boy would feel the same way. They should be coated in sauce and be delicious and you MUST have bleu cheese dipping sauce. Sorry ranch lovers, it's bleu all the way! HG gives you a dipping sauce that is nearly guilt-free with a combo of sour cream and BBQ sauce, but it wasn't all that thrilling. In fact after awhile it was kind of nauseating and I ate the chicken on it's own. The sauce is the main event in the chicken wings. It should stick to your fingers so you have to lick them clean and get more of that kickin' hot sauce!
Perhaps I can concoct a low-calorie low-fat dipping sauce to toss these puppies in?
HG's H-O-T Hot Boneless Buffalo Wings
the following recipe includes the changes I made:
8 oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast, cut into 10 nugget-shaped pieces
1/4 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original), ground to a breadcrumb-like consistency
1 oz. (about 14 crisps) Pringles Light Fat Free Potato Crisps, original (though the suggest BBQ could be better, my local food mart did not have this flavor)
3 tbsp. Safeway Select Buffalo Wing Marinade
dash ground cumin
dash garlic powder
dash black pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Crush potato crisps completely and, in a small dish, mix with cereal crumbs.
Add a dash of each of the seasonings and mix well.
Place chicken pieces in a separate dish, and cover and toss with hot sauce or marinade.
Spray a baking pan with nonstick spray.
Give each chicken piece a shake (so it's not dripping) and then coat it evenly with the crumb mixture.
Lay the battered nuggets on the baking pan.
Place in the oven, and bake for 10 minutes.
Then flip the wings over, and return them to the oven for 10 more minutes, or until outsides are crispy and chicken is cooked throughout.
Makes 2 Servings.
