This is adapted from a diabetic hot wings recipe that I came across while searching for something my husband would like. I've always wondered where the term "Buffalo hot wings" came from and I learned that the traditional hot sauce was created over 45 years in a Buffalo, New York pub! You can honor the Buffalo tradition by serving blue cheese dressing as your dipping sauce...use a low-fat or a fat-free dressing if you are trying to eat healthier. And as you know, the chihcken tenders have less fat than the wings. I hope you will try this recipe and let me know what you think!

Directions

  1. Sprinkle the onion and garlic powders, salt and pepper on the chicken pieces.
  2. In a medium skillet, melt the margarine.
  3. Add chicken and brown over medium heat about 3-4 minutes for each side. Be sure to brown well as that will ensure you taste the seasonings.
  4. While chicken is browning, mix together the hot red pepper sauce, apple cider vinegar and water.
  5. When both sides of chicken are brown, sprinkle the sauce mixture over the chicken pieces. Continue cooking 4-5 minutes, turning chicken midway.
  6. After about 5 minutes, turn the heat to medium high; cook about 2 minutes until the sauce is completely reduced and the chicken is really coated with the sauce.
  7. Note: Cook time will vary with the size of your chicken pieces. Smaller pieces will take less time.
