Lighter Buffalo Chicken Strips

These buffalo chicken tenderloins are spicy and delicious!  I like to serve them with a light blue cheese dressing and celery sticks or cherry tomatoes on the side.  They do not take much to prepare and they feel like a true comfort food.   This would also make a pretty good appetizer for parties as well.

Serves  4



  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp oil
  • 8 strips chicken tenderloin (12.5 oz)
  • 1/4 cup Frank’s Hot Sauce


Combine garlic powder, paprika, chili powder and black pepper in a medium bowl. Season chicken with spices and toss to evenly coat the chicken.

Heat half of the oil in a large non-stick sauté pan over medium-high heat, when hot add half of the chicken and cook until golden, about 3-4 minutes, turn chicken and cook until center is no longer pink. Set aside; repeat with remaining oil and chicken.
