I feel like I've posted something like this before, but when I searched 'Frito', only a few things came up...none of which were chicken tenders, so I guess not. I think they just remind me a lot of the Cap-n-Crunch Chicken Tenders.
Anyway, Jesse and I really like these...Heath did not. He said if it weren't for the dipping sauce, he wouldn't have eaten them. Whatever. They're chicken tenders breaded in Frito's...what's not to like?
As for the sauce, the site I got this from said they used Heluva Good Buffalo Dip, which looks like this...
...however I couldn't find that at the commissary. They had Heluva Good brand, but not that flavor. So, I made my own buffalo dip by mixing together ranch dressing and Frank's Hot sauce. You can also use sour cream and hot sauce, but I preferred the ranch. For Jesse, I just gave him plain ranch to dip since he hates spicy.
Ok guys, I'm off to clean out my garden beds! It's amazing how fast the damn weeds show up. I'm looking forward to summer being over just so I can stop with all the f-ing yard work.
Have a great day!
'Frito Chicken Tenders with Buffalo Dip'
Source: Adapted from Plain Chicken
1-2 pounds chicken tenders
1 1/2 cups of crushed Fritos
1 cup buttermilk (or regular milk)
2 teaspoons garlic salt
You can use Heluva Good brand if you can find it, or make your own by mixing
1/2 cup ranch dressing with
1-2 tablespoons of Frank's Hot Sauce
Add more hot sauce for more heat
1. Heat oven to 375 and line a baking sheet with foil...spray with cooking spray.
2. Place crushed Fritos in a large zip-lock bag. Mix with the garlic salt.
3. Soak the chicken tenders in the buttermilk for 3-5 minutes. Drop the tenders into the Frito bag and shake to coat. You may need to do this in batches.
4. Lay the tenders out on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until cooked through.
5. Meanwhile, if you;re not using the store-bought Buffalo dip, prepare the dip by mixing together the ranch dressing with the desired amount of hot sauce. Refrigerate until ready to use.
