Skinny Buffalo Wing Sammies

John and I both love buffalo wings, but rarely eat them. He will basically only eat chicken breast meat, sans the skin... so I've tried making a bunch of "healthy buffalo wing" recipes. They have gone by well, but nothing amazing. My version is adapted from The Most Decadent Diet EVER! (page 78) and it is a keeper. We wrapped the tenders up along with the colorful coleslaw also found in the same book (recipe to come tomorrow).


Boneless buffalo strips

1.5 Tbs whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 lb chicken tenders
1/4 cup Anchor Bar Wing Sauce (you know the place where buffalo wings were invented!!)
3-4 glugs Franks Red Hot

Mix dry ingredients and one at a time dredge tenders, shake off excess and place on a baking sheet edges not touching. In a large non-stick pan sprayed with olive oil, cook tenders 2-3 minutes per side. Work in batches so tenders aren't touching. Place cooked wings into a bowl and toss to coat with Anchor Wing Sauce and Franks Red Hot.

We wrapped these bad boys up in whole wheat Flat Out wraps cut in half, along with some tasty low-cal coleslaw!! Come back tomorrow for the colorful coleslaw recipe!

MMMMM bar food without the guilt!! We also chowed tasty sweet potato fries to finish off the meal!!!! SO GOOD!

I have half a bottle of these sauces from a dip I made for superbowl. Cant wait to see the lower fat cole slaw. Sound like a tasty meal!

Buffalo wings sound delicious in a wrap! Great idea!

What a brilliant idea!! YUM!

Thank you so much for telling me about your roommate the NICU nurse - it's always so wonderful and inspiring to hear about nurses who love their jobs!!

Yum! I wouldn't touch an actual chicken wing, but would happily chow down on this delicious looking wrap. I love giving comfort food favorites a healthy make-over and you've done a great job on this one, Step. I'm excited to see the other half of the recipe tomorrow too.

A buffalo chicken wrap! I love it. Frank's is the best hot sauce. I could drink that stuff.

Franks is my favorite for sure! And the anchor sauce is amazing mixed in! Hope you ladies all try and like it!
