Jen's Baked Buffalo Chicken Fingers

"My husband loves buffalo chicken, so I wanted to try to make my own. I used pieces instead of wings and baked them instead of frying to help with the fat and calories. You can also skip the butter in the sauce if you want to be extra healthy."


4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves cut into fingers
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
cooking spray

1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup hot sauce (I like Franks buffalo sauce)
1 dash ground black pepper
1 dash garlic powder


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl mix together the flour, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic and salt. Coat chicken in mixture. Place wire cooling rack onto long cookie sheet and spray with cooking spray. Lay chicken pieces on rack. Spray top with more spray. Bake 45 minutes on 350 degrees. Turn oven to 400 spray chicken again and bake for additional 10 minutes.

In Large microwaveable bowl heat sauce ingredients until butter is melted. Add baked chicken to bowl and toss to coat.
Serve with blue cheese dressing if desired.

Serves 4-6
