An easy to make chicken strip delicious served hot or cold.
  • 3 lbs. small chicken tenderloins, or chicken breasts cut lengthwise into 1" wide strips
  • 1-1/2 c. buttermilk
  • ¾ c. hot wing sauce (NOT "Tabasco" or hot sauce)
  • 1-1/4 c. whole grain bread crumbs
  • 1 c. panko bread crumbs
  • ¾ c. grated parmesan cheese
  • 6 T. oil
  1. Mix buttermilk and hot wing sauce together in a shallow pan. Add in chicken, coating well. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine bread crumbs, panko, and parmesan cheese well in a shallow dish or loaf pan. Allow excess marinade to drip off each chicken strip before dredging it in the crumb mixture.
  3. Spread 3 T. oil over the bottom of a large baking sheet. Heat in the oven for 5 minutes. Remove baking sheet from the oven and place the coated chicken strips in a single layer. Use an oil mister or oil bottle with a small, narrow spout to drizzle another 3 T. oil over the chicken tops.
  4. Bake for 10-13 minutes until cooked through.
  5. Notes: Prep time does not include marinating time (1 to 1-1/2 hours); Hot wing sauce usually contains only cayenne peppers, vinegar, salt, garlic and a little oil.
