hot pepper sauce (such as Frank's RedHot®)
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into strips
1 (8 ounce) package
panko bread crumbs
liquid egg substitute (such as Egg Beaters®)
hot pepper sauce (such as Frank's RedHot®), or to taste
I absolutely love your recipe idea but I would like to suggest to use half the amount of buttermilk and half the amount of panko crumbs you suggest if you're only going to be using two chicken breast halves. That much marinade (you can turn the chicken half way during the marinating) and that much crust is wasteful for such a small amount of chicken because you can't reuse the rest of the excess marinade nor the panko crumbs that the raw chicken have touched as it has been contaminated.
With the exception of using chicken tenders, I followed the recipe exactly. Even though I sprayed the pan, the breading stuck and when I flipped the tenders they came up naked. The chicken did not pick up the hot sauce flavoring at all. Overall, this was a disappointment.
Hey everyone - this is my recipe, But a few things seem to be changed by Allrecipes since it was published. I do a few things differently.
1) Do not place the full amount of bread crumbs or egg substitute out at once. I start with small amounts and replenish as needed. It minimizes the amount of waste.
2) I also spray with cooking spray pretty generously. I don't leave them swimming in it, but if you use too light of a hand, you have a higher chance of the breading falling off.
3) You do have to REALLY spray the baking sheet to less breading sticks to it. I am very gentle when I turn them, but you will typically lose some breading. I don't tend to lose a lot though.
4) When they are done cooking, I put buffalo sauce in a bowl and literally coat them in it. This really gives them true wing flavor. That said, it also makes them pretty spicy. If you don't like as much heat, a dash works fine. I then return them to the over to bake for the 5 minutes indicated.
Play with the recipe and see what works for you. I was just happy to have a non-fried alternative that had some crunch to it. Happy cooking!
Used chicken tenders. They were great! Will make again for sure.
I just made this and it got a thumbs up from my wing loving kid! I used a tip from another recipe on the site that I saw. I placed a cookie cooling rack on the baking sheet, sprayed the rack liberally with Pam and baked the strips directly on the rack and they were crisp on both sides and barely lost any breading. With 5 min left in the cook time, I drizzled buffalo sauce on half of them for my family that likes it hot. The remainder, with out the added sauce were great too. I used 3 huge breast cut into large strips. Definitely plenty of marinade and breading for more chicken. This is a keeper for my recipe box!!
I tried baking chicken strips and I just don't like them that way. I have a deep fryer and prefer to use that. Anyway...I don't bother w/buttermilk - the acid in the hot sauce thickens plain ol milk. I go half n half with amounts of milk & hot sauce. I use a regular egg mixed with a bit of milk. I also season up the panko with celery salt, garlic powder, fresh grated parm and a some cayenne pepper. I do leave the chicken to marinade overnight. With my changes these rock and you can quickly toss with a buffalo wing sauce if you really want to kick things up! Easier eating vs chicken wings (although I like those too).
Made these last night for my chicken strip lover of a boyfriend. Didn't realize I had ran out of Frank's, so used Sriracha instead - a delicious alternative! 1 cup of buttermilk to 1/4 cup hot sauce marinated with 3 sliced chicken breasts produced very moist and flavorful chicken strips.
They got a huge stamp of approval from the boyfriend, but as delicious as they were, we couldn't even finish them all. But not to worry, the boyfriend had the leftovers finished by 10am the next morning.
I did find the breading a little heavy though. I don't usually use egg when I bread meats (which is quite frequently), which is perhaps the difference?
These taste really good...they're probably worth 5 stars if done correctly, but I didn't have buttermilk or Egg Beaters so I used plain milk and eggs. Also, I didn't pay close attention when reading the recipe and didn't dip in the panko BEFORE the egg, only after. And I didn't add the last splash of pepper sauce. We added to taste as we ate them. I will definitely try making this again...the right way!
