Boneless Buffalo Wings

January/February 2007

Your rating: None Average: 4 (123 votes)

Even though boneless Buffalo wings are made with healthy white-meat chicken, they're usually deep-fried and drenched in hot sauce laced with butter. The solution: chicken tenders are dredged in seasoned whole-wheat flour and cornmeal, pan-fried in only a small amount of oil and then drizzled with a tangy hot pepper sauce. With a fraction of the fat, calories and sodium, these boneless wings are reason enough to throw a party.

A restaurant favorite, makeable and healthy at home

One of my very favorite food items, this healthy version had great flavor and it felt very indulgent. Unlike other breaded items I have made in the past, the breading stuck on like a champ and the result was attractive and great tasting.

I will be making these again, thank you EatingWell!

great taste, the breading stuck, findable ingredients

Make 'em Easier, Healthier

Try using REAL wings, marinate in Frank's hot sauce for an hour, bake on a broiling pan at 325 for an hour, or until they are fall-off-the bone done. That's it. Use your favorite ranch or blue cheese bottled dressing. Breaded and fried is fine, but these are healthier, easier, and not so messy.

These are good, but too much prep IMO.

What you just described is not healthier than this recipe. Fail.

So Much Better than Greasy Wings

I made these for superbowl and they were fantastic. I used one pound of chicken tenders (there were only two of us) but made the breading for 2 pounds. I let them rest for about 10 minutes after I breaded them, then put fried them up. I used a little more oil than the recipe called for. I had never tried Frank's Red Hot Sauce until now, and I am now saying goodbye to my Tabasco.

These were a tasty alternative to buffalo wings... but I think in the future I'd drizzle more sauce over them... that's usually my favorite part. I also had trouble with the breading sticking to the chicken and would cut back on flour in favor of my cornmeal the next time I make them as I know this works fine from other recipes I've made. They were a hit for Monday Night Football...even with the breading falling off!

I followed the recipe without reading comments. What would work better though is to use cornbread mix instead of the flour and cornmeal then add cayenne to the mix instead of the wet ingredients. Then bake for 35-45 min. or until the juices run clear.
