Superbowl Sunday Buffalo Strips

Keto Recipes > Dinner

Sunday is soon coming, and that means the Superbowl is almost here! I’ve got my money on the Broncos this year, that offense is not going to be stopped. Who do you think’s going to take home the trophy?

Anyway, we need some food for Sunday right? I figure I’m going the classic route and doing some buffalo chicken strips for it. They’re crunchy, full of flavor, and absolutely delicious! You can use whichever hot sauce you want to, I personally went with Frank’s Buffalo Wing Sauce because it’s one of my favorites. That vinegar like pungency mixing with the rich fats of the butter makes for a great dipping sauce.

When I cook large amounts of meat like this, I choose to go with an industrial sized cooling rack, rather than a baking cooling rack. It gives a lot more support and is usually a better size for fitting on a cookie sheet.

I used Blue Stilton cheese for this recipe, grating it as needed for the chicken and sprinkling it over the top for garnish. It adds that much needed cooling effect when the sauce gets too spicy.

Yields 9 total chicken strips, 3 total servings.
