    SusieQusie's Note:

    This recipe idea was born when I was attacked by a buffalo wing craving while trying to diet. As with all my recipes, feel free to sub full-fat ingredients if you want. I do suggest using the panko as it browns in the same amount of time that it takes for the chicken cultlets to cook through but stay moist.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    Crunchy Chicken

    • 2 chicken cutlets (or pound a BL, SL breast into submission- you want it thin)
    • 2 egg whites, beaten (or 1/4 cup egg substitute)
    • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (NOT Tabasco! I used Texas Pete's brand but Franks' would be good, too)
    • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs (I used & recommend Spiced Panko Bread Crumbs but you could use regular breadcrumbs)
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil

    What makes it Buffalo-ish tasting

    • 4 tablespoons reduced-fat feta cheese (I prefer Blue cheese but it doesn't exist in my world in a lowfat variety)
    • 2 tablespoons nonfat sour cream
    • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce, to taste

    Sandwich assembly items

    • 2 whole wheat hamburger buns, toasted (I used Nature's Own Sugar-Free buns)
    • 4 leaves lettuce


    1. 1
      Mix the hot sauce with the egg whites then set up your assembly line: chicken, egg dip, panko crumbs, baking rack.
    2. 2
      Dip the chicken in the egg then roll in the panko crumbs. Press those crumbs on tightly. Place on baking rack to set while you get the frying pan ready.
    3. 3
      Heat your large frying pan over medium-high flame and add the olive oil.
    4. 4
      When the oil is hot, add the cutlets. Cook for about 3 minutes on the first side; flip and cook 2 minutes more, depending on the thickness of your chicken. Don't let the panko get over browned!
    5. 5
      While the chicken cooks, toast the buns under the broiler.
    6. 6
      For each sandwich, place 1 lettuce leaf on the browned bun bottom ( that's an odd phrase, huh?)and spoon over 1/4 of the "Buffalo" sauce. Top with a cutlet, another 1/4 of the sauce and a lettuce leaf.
    7. 7
      If you have extra sauce, dipping your sandwich as you eat is encouraged.

      I had a leftover egg white from another recipe and found this. So I made one of these sandwiches for lunch using BLSL chicken breasts. The coating was definitely hot (could be the pepper sauce I used, it's pretty hot on it's own.) This made a delicious chicken sandwich. Like another person I smeared some mayo on the bread. I'm not really a blue cheese or feta fan so I left it out. But the sandwich definitely had the buffalo heat in there. Next time I might make my favourite buffalo wing sauce and toss the cooked chicken in it for even more flavour. Either way, I will definitely be making this one again. Thanks for posting.

      GOOD ONE, SusieQusie !! We loved this! Made a coupld adaptations. We LOVE spicy buffalo wings, so I marinated our pounded chix breasts in hot sauce and some EVOO for about 4 hours. Then cooked per recipe. They were Perfect!! For the sauce -- I did use Blue Cheese, and added some celery seed (both for a more authentic "buffalo wing" experience ! and about a tablespoon of light Mayo. (start the diet tomorrow) ;-) Thanks again. This will be a regular !
