This is such a crowd pleaser and so much more than just a game day snack. I love buffalo chicken, but I am not a wings girl, I prefer filet bites. And while you can get chicken tenders and even wings in Germany, it is usually only served with BBQ sauce and basically never Buffalo-style. So since it is so tasty, I now make them at home.
- 2 chicken breasts
- 1,5 cups of buttermilk
- ½ cup of flour
- Buffalo wing sauce (click here for my recipe to make it at home in 8 min)
- ½ cup of mayonnaise
- ½ cup of crumbled blue cheese
- ¼ cup of sour cream
- ½ cup of buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon of white vinegar
- 1 teaspoon of mustard
- ½ teaspoon of garlic powder
My preparation of this dish already starts the day before. Cut the chicken filet into smaller pieces. Then place them in a bowl. Cover the entire chicken bits with buttermilk and leave it in the fridge overnight. Thereby you ensure that the meat will be super juicy and extra tender.
The next day, preheat the oven at 200 degrees Celsius/400 degrees Fahrenheit and then remove the buttermilk from the bowl and pour the flour over the chicken. Make sure to cover all the bites with it. Lay the filet on a baking tray and place it in the oven. After 8 minutes turn the chicken and bake it for another 7 minutes. Pour the chicken in a bowl and mix it with buffalo sauce. Then put the chicken back in the oven for 5 minutes.
For the blue cheese dressing wisk the mayonnaise with the cream, the buttermilk, the vinegar, the mustard and the garlic. When everything is blended well, add the blue cheese. Stir until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Spice with salt and pepper.Tender Buffalo Chicken Bites
