Gluten-Free Cajun Buffalo Chicken Tenders

"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."

Ready In:


  • 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)


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

  1. This recipe was a great find and extremely easy to make. I used Franks THICK Pepper Sauce, which is my personal favorite. Thanks Chef!
  2. 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


I am blessed with a wonderful dh and four fantastic, crazy children. I am a stay at home mom who works from son up till son down. My favorite cookbook is not one that I cook with very often, it actually sits on top of my pantry propped up in an old basket. The cookbook was given to my grandmother just prior to her marriage to my grandfather and it has the family prayer and some recipes that my great-grandmother penned in her own hand inside. It is called All About Home Baking. <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=> <img src=> <img src=""> <img src="">
