How to Make Buffalo Sauce

It’s actually very simple to make your own nice and creamy home-made buffalo sauce. All you need to do is mix together hot sauce, butter, white vinegar, Worcester sauce, cayenne pepper and garlic powder. Once you have your mixture, heat it until the butter is completely melted and begins to simmer. You can then turn down the heat and wait for the sauce to cool down.

Other Uses for Buffalo Sauce

Although you may mainly associate buffalo sauce with chicken, there are no shortage of other ways we can use it. For example, try mixing it with a Mac and Cheese recipe to add a spicy twist to an old classic. Alternatively, you can also adapt this sushi recipe to incorporate chicken with buffalo sauce for a cultural mashup beyond your wildest dreams. Finally, for a veggie friendly dish, make this Buffalo Cauliflower Casserole.  

How to Make Breaded Chicken Tenders

You can make your own breaded chicken tenders at home if you don’t fancy doing a store run. The first thing you will want to do is pre-heat your oven and line it with a cooking sheet. You will then want to coat your chicken with flour and then dip it into a beaten egg and water mixture before coating it once again with bread crumbs. You can then leave your tenders in the oven until they are cooked through and have a nice golden brown color on the outside.

Once you have learnt how to make your own breaded chicken tenders, there are plenty of recipes you can use them with, for example BBQ Fried Chicken.
