Very tasty. I don't eat any white flour so I used hard whole wheat flour and found that I needed to add more oil. For an added spice, I dash some more hot sauce while the tenders were frying. i did not try the dipping sauce.
Outstanding buffalo chicken, incredibly tasty and crispy! Full 5 stars for the chicken. The sauce was not as good, not enough flavor and texture was rather hard also, so overall stars came down to 4. Will make the chicken again and look for another recipe for the sauce.
Great dipping sauce to cool you down after a bite of the chicken. I strayed a little - used egg whites and panko crumbs to bread the chicken rather than flour - just my preference. Love the hot sauce _marinade_ idea. That really infuses the chicken with flavor. Defintely a keeper of a recipe!
