Gluten-Free Cajun Buffalo Chicken Tenders

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 45 mins

I had defrosted some chicken breast strips the other day and was really craving buffalo wings. So, I threw this together on a whim. It is quick and simple to prepare. And the recipe could easily be made with all purpose flour for those who do not have an issue with gluten.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 cup rice flour (I used Bob's Red Mill)
  • 2 tablespoons cajun seasoning, blend. (I used Cajun Spice Blend by Elmotoo)
  • 14 cup butter
  • 1 (2 lb) bag chicken breasts, strips
  • 12 cup hot pepper sauce (I used Frank's Hot Pepper Sauce)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place butter in a 9" x 13" baking dish and place in oven while preheating to melt.
  3. Pour hot pepper sauce in in a small bowl.
  4. Combine rice flour and Cajun seasoning in a medium sized bowl; make sure it is all blended well.
  5. Remove baking dish from oven and tip from side to side so that butter coats entire bottom of pan.
  6. Rinse chicken breast strips and dip them in the hot pepper sauce.
  7. Dredge breast strips in the seasoned rice flour, making sure they are well coated.
  8. Arrange chicken pieces in pan and bake 45 minutes.

This recipe was a great find and extremely easy to make. I used Franks THICK Pepper Sauce, which is my personal favorite. Thanks Chef!

Yum, these buffalo Chicken Tenders are delicious. I kept to the written recipe, I used a Masterfood Cajun seasoning and Louisiana Hot Pepper Sauce (which I purchased in the USA Section of David Jones). The only thing I would do if I made these again is turn down the heat to about 180oC ( I thought 205oC was to hot) and cook them for about 20 minutes. I smelt them burning at 25 minutes into cooking time, so I pulled them out of the oven and the bottoms were a little crisp. Other then these adjustment I would make this recipe again. Thanks so much for a great and easy recipe Chef Buggsy Mate
