I got this out of the Cooks Country Feb/March 2009 Magazine. Hubby and I loved it, both of us prefer the boneless style "wings". For the hot sauce, Cooks Country recommends Franks (which we used) over Tabasco. We served it with the standard Blue Cheese dressing (I made the Cooks Country version) and celery. Prep time is a total guess since I have not made this since last year. I can update it when I make it again (this weekend!).

Good flavor even though I messed up royally. Missed in step 3 where it said second bowl. I added it all together. So added some water to make a batter. Was good and spicy. Served with blue cheese dressing and salad. Next time I will make it correctly.
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 lbs)
- 1⁄2 cup buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup hot sauce
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 1⁄4 teaspoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 1⁄2 cups cornstarch
- 4 large egg whites
- 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda

Directions See How It's Made
- Marinate: Cut chicken into about 1 1/2 inch chunks. Combine chicken, buttermilk, and salt in large zipper lock bag and refrigerate 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.
- Combine hot sauce, water, sugar, butter and 2 tsp cornstarch in saucepan. Whisk over medium heat until thickened, about 5 minutes.
- Coat: Whisk egg whites in shallow dish until foamy. Stir flour, baking soda, remaining cornstarch, and 6 tbsp hot sauce mixture in second shallow dish until mixture resembles coarse meal.
- Remove chicken from marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Toss half of chicken with egg whites until well coated, then dredge chicken in cornstarch mixture, pressing to adhere. Transfer coated chicken to plate and repeat with remaining chicken.
- Fry: Heat oil in Dutch oven over medium high heat until oil registers 350 degrees and repeat with remaining chicken.
- Toss: Warm remaining hot sauce mixture over medium low heat until simmering. Combine chicken and hot sauce mixture in large bowl and toss to coat.
- Serve :).
