I didn't post a menu last week and so far I haven't done one this week - because we've had things going on non-stop! And even though we've been eating at home it's been a quick saute here and some mac&cheese there (typical with toddlers, right?).
We LOVE buffalo wings, dip, anything really :) And my husband had a serious "need" for them one night last week. Well, since he lost his job at the end of last year we have only eaten out once for a lunch date (though I did take little Allan to Chick Fil A to celebrate his giving up the paci). I really hated the thought of ordering take out (read - spend money) or making the little man wait on food at a restaurant (read - my kid has no patience when hungry). But I did have some chicken breast and Franks hot wing sauce in the fridge so I improvised! And I didn't think to share this with you all until they were all gone (sorry, no pic) but I do think they were at least a little more healthy than regular wings!
Big Allan's Buffalo Bites
4 chicken breast, cut into cubes
4 tablespoons of flour
3 tablespoons of canola oil (just enough to coat the pan)
1/2 cup of wing sauce (we use Franks)
3 tablespoons of honey
Heat the oil on med-hi in a pan
Take the cubed chicken and place it in a gallon ziploc bag, add flour to the bag and shake to coat the chicken.
Add chicken bites - let them saute until done.
Mix honey with hot sauce and pour over chicken.
Keep buffalo bites on the heat until every piece has a good coating of wing sauce.
Serve with celery and ranch (or blue cheese) dressing
With more football on TV this Sunday - I see some more of these being eaten in the near future!
