I must admit that I admire "heather drive". She is so creative and inspiring. I try to read her blog atleast once a month. When I was planning the wedding I was probably looking at her page a couple times a week. She has tons of "DIY" projects on there and recipies and books. It makes me want to do things! I know, kinda silly. But I think I will be posting more of the recipes that Danny and I have been trying on here and my new projects and goals. A bonus is that it keeps be busy and my mind off of food! My goal in the next couple of weeks is to find some good superbowl food for Danny and I. I am starting off by trying HeatherDrives Buffalo Chicken Strips.

Here is the recipie I found on her page.

Buffalo-Style Chicken Strips(Source: Amber's Delectable Delights, adapted from: 4 tbsp. all-purpose flour- 2 tsp. garlic powder- 2 tsp. paprika- 1 tsp. onion powder- 1 tsp. salt- 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper- 2 large egg whites, lightly beaten- 3 cups coarsely crushed cornflakes- 1 lb. chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch-thick strips- Cooking spray- 1/3 cup hot sauce (such as Crystal)- 1 tsp. hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco)- 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce- 1 tbsp. butter- 1/2 cup fat-free ranch dressing for dipping (can substitute blue cheese, BBQ sauce, ketchup... whatever you like to dip chicken fingers in)Directions:1. Preheat oven to 400°.2. Combine first 6 ingredients in a shallow dish, stirring with a whisk. Place egg whites in a shallow dish. Place cornflakes in a shallow dish. Working with 1 chicken strip at a time, dredge in flour mixture. Dip in egg whites; dredge in cornflakes. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Repeat procedure with remaining chicken strips, flour mixture, egg whites, and cornflakes.3. Lightly coat chicken strips with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until done, turning once.4. Combine hot sauce, pepper sauce, and Worcestershire in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in butter. Drizzle hot sauce mixture over chicken. (I read in the comments that it's best not to drizzle it over the chicken, because it can cause the corn flakes to lose their crunch. If you make the hot sauce, I suggest dipping the chicken in it instead.)Serve with ranch dressing, celery, and carrots.

Thanks for the shout-out! :)

We just had those leftover chicken strips last night and they were just as delicious the second time around (we reheated them in the oven to make the cornflakes crispy again). Yum!
