Buffalo Chicken Tenders
- Cooking spray
- 1 pound chicken breasts, cut into strips
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 1/4 cup milk
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup buffalo sauce (or enough to dunk your chicken tenders in)
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray, or line with aluminum foil.
Mix flour and spices together until well combined in a large zip-top bag.
In a separate bowl, combine the egg and milk.
Dip chicken tenders into egg mixture, then drop into the bag with flour and shake lightly until well-coated. If desired, repeat this step for extra crispy tenders.
Once each tender is coated, lay on cooking sheet and brush with the melted butter.
Bake 20 minutes, turning halfway through.
Pour the buffalo sauce into a shallow dish or bowl.
Remove chicken from oven, dunk into buffalo sauce and bake for another 3–5 minutes, until crisp.
