I found this recipe online, it's a copycat recipe from 'Wingers' - never heard of the joint, perhaps an American restaurant and I'm a Canadian gal. The recipe sounded good but maybe a little sweet so I modified it and...man-o-man it's lip smackin' good!
I started with 4 good sized boneless chicken breast (the recipe i looked at used some kind of frozen breaded chicken but breaded my own.
I cut the chicken into pieces, hubby wanted chunks, more like boneless chicken wings and I wanted larger chicken finger kinda pieces. Then shake them in a ziplock baggie and coat with flour then dip into the eggs, then into the panko crumbs.
Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake in oven at 425 for 15-20 minutes depending on the size of your chicken pieces.
Meanwhile get your sauce...yummy, delious, sticky, sweet, spicy, mouth watering sauce going :)
The original recipe called for 1 1/3cup of brown sugar for the sauce, I just used 1 cup and to me it tasted perfect! Mix the Franks Red Hot and brown sugar together in a small pot over medium high heat until sugar is dissolved and mixture is boiling, change temp to low until chicken is ready. If you allow your sauce to cool it will thicken too much.
