I am not really sure what gave me the idea to make these hearty little bites but once the thought was in my head, it was all I could think about.
I have never made anything with buffalo sauce before and I wouldn’t exactly call this the healthiest thing I’ve ever made but hey, sometimes I wanna grub, just like you. I was surprised at how fast these baked and with a few quick tips I came up with, you can whip these babies up in less than an hour start to finish!
First, lets start with the Ranch coleslaw.
4oz of buttermilk
4oz of mayo (can sub sour cream or greek yogurt)
1/2 a packet of Hidden Valley Original Ranch mix
1/2 cup of chopped carrots
1/2 cup of chopped red cabbage
4 King’s Hawaiian Rolls
1 large Chicken breast
1 cup of all-purpose flour
1 cup of panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup of Frank’s Hot Wing sauce
1/4 cup of buttermilk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
I attempted to cut a large chicken breast into four somewhat equal parts that resembled the shape of a Hawaiian King Role. They’re not perfect but they will do just fine! Be sure to take note of which pieces are thicker than others as they will require more time baking. Cut away any extra fat or sinewy parts.
Now here’s the good part y’all… I double breaded these babies! That’s right, I had extra egg and dry mixtures and thought, why not? This part starts to get a little messy but stick with it because the extra crispy crust is totally worth it in the end. Re-dip the breaded chicken into the egg, hot sauce mixture.
An easy substitution would be to buy matchstick carrots but I wanted to see for myself how to cut a carrot into thin little pieces. You will need a sharp knife for this. I began by slicing the carrot into thirds and then subsequently dicing those in half long ways and then cutting them into thin pieces.
The chicken should be about done by now. Toss the chicken cuts with more Frank’s hot wing sauce. I used hot buffalo sauce but unless you like to sweat and sniffle while you eat, I suggest using the regular buffalo sauce. This one got quite hot! Or you could mix hot and regular, up to you.
