Healthy Buffalo Chicken Strips

These chicken strips are one of my favorite snacks or meals to go to when I am craving something spicy and comforting!

Before I really starting being more committed to my healthy lifestyle my go to favorite food was always chicken wings. However, now that I no longer eat fried food, avoid preservatives, and unhealthy carbs I wanted to find a replacement. I struggled to find something that fit the void that chicken wings left so I created one on my own and it does the job well!


Prep time: 30 minutes (optional to marinate for up to 24 hours)

Bake time 20 minutes

Total time: 50 minutes

Total servings 2-4 (really depending on how much chicken you use)


Ingredients:

(If you are having trouble finding anything I have attached a link for each item of the brand I prefer and use)

Instructions:

  1. Combined yogurt, and spices into a mixing bowl and mix well

  2. Set aside one cup of the mixture. This will be your ranch for dipping

  3. Add to the zipped bag.

  4. If you bought chicken that needs cut, first cut before moving onto the next step.

  5. Add chicken to the bag

  6. Let sit in the fridge for at least 3 hours. I prefer to make it the night before and let it marinate for 24 hours. I feel like this gives it better flavor as well as makes it easier for me to just cook the chicken the next day.

  7. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

  8. Pour out gluten free Panko bread onto a medium sized plate or tray.

  9. One by one remove the chicken from the bag and press onto the crumbs coating well.

  10. Add chicken to a sprayed cooking sheet, I highly recommend using a baking rack so they chicken stays crispy and does not get soggy. The try I use it here

  11. Put chicken in the oven for approx 25 minutes depending on oven and altitude. You want the chicken to get crispy but make sure it is done all the way through.

  12. When the chicken has a about 5 minutes left add your wing sauce to a pan and cook on a low temp. You really just want the wing sauce to get warmer than room temp so it does not make the chicken cold. I like my chicken to be hot buffalo flavored. However, if you prefer other flavors some of my favorite sauces in other varieties are: here (I really like the honey bbq).

  13. Remove chicken from oven and lightly drop into sauce coating them completely. Be careful not to scrap the breading off.

  14. Serve with the ranch flavored yogurt sauce that we set aside.

  15. Enjoy!
