Brian and I traditionally make these for our We're Lame Homebodies Who Stay In, New-Years Celebration. Every year we stay in for New Years, just the two of us (or in recent years 3 of us, but Becca's in bed), eat fabulous food and watch movies.
While they're fantastic, normally when we make them we use our deep fryer and it is sooo much work. Our fryer takes a huge amount of oil, and we don't use the fryer enough to use the oil again before it spoils, so it's wasteful and expensive. We've been forever saying that we needed to find a less expensive, time consuming and wasteful way to make these little babies and we FINALLY got around to it! And hooray, it worked! They were aaaaamazing. I serve them with my homemade blue cheese dip.
Ingredients: All measurements are approximate. Brian doesn't measure.
3 chicken breasts (approximately 1.5 lbs)
2-3 eggs, beaten
1 C flour
1/4 tsp pepper
enough vegetable oil to coat the bottom of frying pan by 1/4 inch
your preferred hot sauce. We prefer Franks Red Hot Buffalo Wing sauce
Heat oil in a deep fry pan.
Beat eggs in a shallow bowl. Set aside. Mix together the flour, salt and pepper into a large bowl.
Cut up chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces, then coat in egg, then coat in flour.
Place coated chicken into the hot oil and cook until golden & crispy.
Using a slotted spoon remove the chicken from pan and set on a plate to drain oil.
Coat the chicken heavily in your favorite hot wing sauce. We strongly recommend Franks Red Hot Buffalo Wing sauce. We use a LOT of it, too, so the chicken is dripping with hot sauce.
