Asian Buffalo Chicken Bites

img_1600.jpg

 I like Buffalo Wings but what I like even better is Breaded Buffalo Chicken.  Then you don’t have to deal with bones and the outside is a lot crisper.  Plus, I think the chicken holds on to a lot more sauce which means there’s a lot more flavor.  The idea for this dish was to use some homemade chicken bites and toss them with an Asian inspired Buffalo sauce.  As you can see from the recipe below, I came up with a hybrid buffalo/barbeque sauce.  I started with just honey, hot sauce, and soy sauce but I wanted a little more body to it so I added the ketchup and the hoisin.  But then it was hot enough so I had to add the cayenne pepper.  I think it turned out pretty good.  Here’s the recipe:

Asian Buffalo Chicken Bites

1/2 lb chicken breast (or tenders) cut into 1 ounce strips

4 T hot sauce of your choice (Tabasco or Franks would be good choices)

3 T honey

1 T hoisin

1 tsp soy sauce

1 T ketchup

1/4 tsp cayenne or to taste

flour for dredging

2 eggs beaten with 2 T water

1 1/2 cups fine bread crumbs for breading

Combine hot sauce, honey, hoisin, soy, ketchup, and cayenne pepper in a small saucepan.  Bring just to a simmer.  Remove from heat.

Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper.  Dredge in the flour, shaking off any excess.  Then coat with the egg mixture, again shaking off any excess.  Then coat chicken with bread crumbs.  Fry in 350 degree vegetable oil until golden brown and crisp. 

Toss chicken with sauce.  Serve immediately.
