I love a good Buffalo Wing, but having food sensitivities dampens dining out. So I've developed an easy, gluten free and tasty alternative.


Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 3 servings


  • 3 chicken breasts or 6 tenders, cut into chunks
  • vegetable oil to fry at least 1/2" deep in your pan
  • 1/3 cup corn starch
  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup Frank's style Hot Sauce (any generic will work)


  1. Cut chicken into chunks approx. 2 inches square.
  2. Mix rice flour, cornstarch and salt into either a bowl or bag to dredge chicken.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet on med high heat. Drop chicken pieces one at a time into the skillet, making sure they don't touch.
  4. In a sauce pan, mix hot sauce and butter over med heat till butter melts. Whisk to mix well.
  5. Finish cooking chicken pieces on all sides till nice and crispy. Drain.
  6. Put chicken in sauce pot and cover with sauce.
  7. Serve and enjoy!
  8. Ad

Great served with the traditional celery and carrot sticks and a dipping sauce of Ranch Dressing if you like. Also great with some bread sticks.

Baked chicken breast with a topping of "bread-free" bread crumb substitutes. Many people have gluten intolerances. These substitutes actually taste better than bread crumbs, which really have little flavor.

  • 1 pkg. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Lawry's seasoning salt
  • garlic powder
  • celery salt
  • pepper


Wash chicken breasts and cut into nugget size pieces (may flatten some, if necessary). While wet, lightly sprinkle each of the four spices on one side of the chicken. Turn the pieces over and repeat the process. Put a small amount of cooking oil into a pan, and heat the pan until the oil starts to simmer. Add the chicken, fry until both sides are golden brown and chicken is tender. Do not overcook.
