fried chickenThis chicken is CRAZY Good!! The coating is crunchy but the meat is tender! Oh my the flavor is so good!

There are no eggs and you can go dairy or non-dairy.  The mixture is thick and holds the breading very well.  The added hot sauce gives it that extra kick!

Kickin’ Tenders.

1 lb Chicken Thighs, cut into strips

Wet mixture:

  •     1/4 cup hot sauce (I use Franks Original Hot Sauce)
  •     5 Tbs Butter (Dairy or Nondairy)
  •     1 Tbs Starch (Tapioca, Arrowroot or Potato Starch)
  •     5 Tbs Milk (Dairy or Nondairy)


  •     1/2 Cup Tapioca (Or Arrowroot or Potato Starch)
  •     1/2 Cup Blanched Almond Flour
  •    1 tsp Black Pepper
  •     1/2 tsp Salt
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a microwave safe bowl combine wet mixture ingredients and heat until thickened in the microwave (1-2 minutes) or on the stove top in a sauce pan. If using the microwave whisk liberally as soon as you remove the bowl. If using the sauce pan whisk continually while it thickens.
  3. In another bowl combine breading ingredients.
  4. Drop chicken strips into wet mixture and then heavily dredge in breading mixture; place on foil lined baking sheet. Repeat until all chicken strips have been coated. Drizzle chicken with a little oil.
  5. Place chicken in oven for 35-40 minutes; chicken will be golden brown and cooked through!
