Tonight's dinner was a definite keeper. Buffalo wings are so tasty, and this version had the essence of the flavor without the fat. I used chunks of boneless chicken breasts, along with Louisiana Supreme Chicken Wing Sauce, which is 0,0,0. Any buffalo sauce that is 0,0,0 should work well, and I've included an easy alternative in case you can't find anything in your local store.
The taste was absolutely delicious--a little spicy and tangy, definitely a nice change from our regular menu.
I served with Walden Farms Blue Cheese dressing for dipping, salad, and Swiss chard sautéed with garlic and olive oil. The chicken is absolutely delicious served on top of your salad, with the blue cheese dressing drizzled on top. A spicy kick with the cool blue cheese taste to follow. So good.
Boneless Buffalo Chicken
2 lbs boneless chicken breasts, cut into chunks.
2 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 cup Louisiana Supreme Chicken Wing Sauce
If you cannot find: mix together 1/4 cup Franks Hot Sauce, 1 tbsp. white vinegar, 1 tsp. olive oil, 1 tsp. celery seed, 1/8 tsp. pepper, 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Olive oil (I use in a Misto sprayer)
Heat a nonstick skillet on medium high, then when pre-heated spray with olive oil. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add chicken breast chunks and brown on one side, approximately 4 minutes. Flip chicken and brown on other side. Cook until chicken is nearly cooked through, approximately 2 more minutes.
Add buffalo sauce to pan and stir to coat chicken. Cook for 2 additional minutes, stirring several times, allowing the sauce to begin to brown.
That's it!! Easy and tasty--you will not miss those fattening wings.
Serves 4 (8oz chicken each), more if not everyone is on Ideal Protein.
