Baked Boneless Buffalo Wings & Blue Cheese Dip

- jim Young 20190322

We buy our boneless chicken breasts in bulk at Costco and then pack them in pairs with our vacuum sealer for freezing as we rarely need more than 2 at a time.

When doing this, I always separate the tenderloins from the chicken breasts and vacuum pack them separately for use as a treat such as chicken fingers or fried chicken balls.

Using them to make Boneless Buffalo Wings however is my favourite treat.

Baked Boneless Buffalo Wings and Blue Cheese Dip.
You don’t have to use the chicken tenderloins to make these. Simply cutting up any boneless chicken breast into strips or small chunks will work just as well.

Of course nothing goes better with Buffalo Wings of any kind than some celery sticks with a good Blue Cheese Dip.

Baked Boneless Buffalo Wings.

Do This:


  1. Preheat oven to 475° F. 
  2. Combine the flour, breadcrumbs, paprika, salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper in a small mixing bowl. 
  3. Beat the eggs and mix with milk in a small bowl.
  4. Place a piece of foil or parchment paper onto a cookie sheet and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  5. Dip each piece of chicken into the egg mixture, then into the breading blend, and repeat.
  6. Arrange the chicken pieces on the baking sheet and then spray a light coating of cooking spray over the chicken pieces. 
  7. Bake for 15-20  minutes or until chicken is cooked through and begins to lightly brown.
  8. Turn the heat up to broil and continue to cook the chicken for 1-2 more minutes or until the surface begins to become golden brown and crispy, watching it carefully.
  9. Remove from the oven and let them cool while you make the sauce.

For the Sauce:


  1. Combine all ingredients in a microwave-safe dish. 
  2. Cover and microwave on high until the mixture begins to bubble, then remove and stir.
  3. Toss cooked chicken pieces and hot sauce mixture in a bowl until all pieces are coated. 
  4. Serve.


Tip: To make ahead, once the chicken is cooked through but before the 1-2 min. broil, take the chicken out of the oven. Let cool completely then freeze. When ready to bake, remove from freezer and bake at 400° F for about 15 minutes or until warmed through. Toss with sauce and serve.

Pieces of raw cauliflower, strips of sweet peppers or carrot sticks are just some examples of what might make a good summertime or winter movie night snack.
