First, y’all need to head over to The Kennedy Adventures, where Dianna is giving away a copy of my eBook – Tight Budget, Tiny Kitchen, and No Time: How to Eat Well in Your First Apartment. Thanks, DK!
This is an example of the type of recipe and tips in the book. I’m all about buying things when they’re on sale and freezing them for later use, making dishes as healthy as possible, and eating things that taste delicious I sent my husband to the grocery with a list, and one of the items on the list was “chicken strips”. I’d seen a recipe for hoagie sandwiches with buffalo sauce and chicken strips, and it just sounded good. He came back with plain chicken tenders (EEK – not on sale) rather than the breaded variety I’d expected, but since that was a much healthier option I decided to wing it.
2 pounds chicken (buy the skinless, boneless when it’s on sale and slice it into strips)
1/2 bottle buffalo wing sauce of your choice (we use medium)
hot dog buns (cheaper than hoagie buns)
bleu cheese dressing (cheaper than bleu cheese crumbles and it goes further)
Chopped green onions
tabasco or other hot sauce if you like it spicy (I do!)
Marinate raw chicken in wing sauce for a couple of hours in the fridge.
Grill or cook in grill pan or skillet until browned lightly on both sides.
Toast buns. I like to spray ours with a non-stick spray and toast them on the griddle, but toasting them in a toaster oven would work just fine.
Assemble chicken strips on buns with bleu cheese dressing, tabasco, and green onions. Serve with a salad or vegetable if you can convince your family to eat it. Otherwise resign yourself to the fact they’ll be eating it with chips and queso.
Serves four if they’re hungry
