Ingredients

  • 1 bag frozen fries, baked (or your favourite restaurant fries)

Boneless Buffalo Wings:

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced into chunks
  • 3/4 cup cornstarch, divided
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 2/3 cup water
  • Vegetable oil, for frying

Buffalo Sauce:

  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce

Topping:

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
    2 garlic cloves, finely minced
    1 Tbsp lemon juice
    1 teaspoon dijon mustard
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Instructions

If using a bag of frozen fries, bake according to package directions.

For the Boneless Buffalo Wings:

  1. In a bowl, toss the chicken chunks with 1/4 cup of cornstarch. Place the chunks of chicken on a wire rack and place in the refrigerator to rest for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, pour your oil into a pot, clipping a frying/candy thermometer to the side of your pot (making sure it’s not touching the bottom) and heat until the oil reaches 350°F.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the remaining 1/2 cup of cornstarch, flour, baking powder, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne and water.
  4. Remove chicken from refrigerator and dip in the cornstarch batter, then place in the oil. Fry in batches until brown and crispy, about 4-7 minutes.
  5. Remove from oil and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain the excess oil.

For the Buffalo Sauce:

  1. Heat the butter and hot sauce in a heat safe bowl in the microwave in 30 second intervals until butter is melted. Stir until smooth.
  2. Pour buffalo sauce over the chicken and toss to completely coat the chicken.
  3. Pour baked fries onto a serving plate and place chicken pieces on top. Serve with Spicy Aioli recipe, if desired. Enjoy!
