Method to my Meals
Time: 30 m (10 m prep, 20 m cook)
(Ingredients and measurements subject to availability)
- 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
- Vegetable oil*
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 12 oz beer*
- 1 bottle buffalo sauce
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup whole milk
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- Dash of Worcestershire sauce* (If available, but not provided)
- 1/3 cup blue cheese crumbles
- Salt and pepper*
- 3 bell peppers
Salt and pepper
- Cut up the chicken into bite sized pieces.
- Using a large pot, fill it with 3-4 inches deep of vegetable oil. Heat the oil to 350 degrees. Check this by using a thermometer or by tossing in a small crumb of bread and if it sizzles immediately, it's ready.
- Pull out 2 shallow bowls. Fill the first bowl with 1.5 cups flour. Fill the second bowl with 1 cup flour, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Using a whisk, slowly pour the beer into the second bowl and whisk while pouring the entire beer into the mixture.
- Now is when you will prepare the chicken in batches. I recommend doing 6-8 pieces of chicken per batch to avoid overcrowding/the bites sticking together.
- Dredge the chicken bites into the flour, and shake off excess flour by shaking the dredged pieces in a spider skimmer. Dunk the chicken into the wet batter, and shake off any excess batter using the spider.
- Once your oil is at 350 degrees, carefully lower the chicken bites into the oil. Cook for 3 - 3.5 minutes until golden brown. While cooking, pull out a baking sheet and place 2 sheets of paper towels over it. Once the chicken bites are nice and crispy, let them drain on the paper towels. Sprinkle some salt over the fried chicken bites. Repeat with the rest.
- Once all are cooked, carefully place them in a bowl. You might have to pull a few apart if some stuck together.
- Drizzle some of Franks sauce over the bites - start with a minimal amount as you can always add more. Toss the bites to coat. Drizzle a little bit of honey over the bites, and toss again.
- In a medium bowl, combine the mayo, milk, sour cream and Worcestershire, and stir until combined. Stir in the blue cheese and add salt and pepper to taste.
- Slice bell peppers vertically and serve together.
