Buffalo Chicken Tenders

When it is a lazy family game night, and everyone else is digging into heaping piles of Costco's buffalo wings, it sure is nice to have an easy, pleasing low-carb. low-calorie alternative!

Buffalo Chicken Tenders
Serves 4

1 lb. boneless, skinless, chicken breast tenders
2 tbsp. butter or butter substitute (opt. - still good without it)
1/4 cup hot pepper sauce, like Frank's Red Hot Sauce


1) Combine butter substitute, hot sauce, and chicken (like in a ziplock bag).
Marinate in refrigerator for 20 minutes. (Marinating is not necessary if you are in a hurry - just makes them a bit spicier, I think.)

2) Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick spray for easy clean-up.

3) Bake 12 - 16 minutes, until done.

4) Serve with extra hot sauce, to heat it up, and/or with celery sticks, to cool it down. (If you can spare the calories, a lighter ranch or bleu cheese dressing is customary, but not essential.)

Leftovers go well atop a salad.
