Hungry Girl's H-O-T Hot Boneless Buffalo Wings

Today I cooked my first Hungry Girl dish during Refrigerator Queen Training, Hungry Girl's H-O-T Hot Boneless Buffalo Wings.

This dish is Super Bowl Sunday material! These are a deceiving little junk food knock offs and I think I can pass them off as the "real thing" with the guys. 

I was also happy to find out that buffalo wings don't EVER need to cost so many calories or points. Cayenne Pepper Sauce, the sauce that is used as buffalo sauce in more recipes is zero calories and zero fat grams! It also has a lot health benefits because of the capsaicin, the stuff that produces the hotness in cayenne, is known for it's pain-reducing effects, its cardiovascular benefits, and its ability to help prevent ulcers. Who knew?

Tonight I paired the wings with my Faux Fries, that I posted about earlier. 

I have to admit, I took a little bit of glee in looking at my plate of food that looked TERRIBLY bad for me, knowing that the contents of my plate would only costing me 9 weight watchers points plus (14 if I ate both servings of wings, which I did because I had enough points today). Try to accomplish that at Buffalo Wild Wings!

The Recipe

Ingredients: 8 oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast, cut into 10 nugget-shaped pieces 
1/4 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original), ground to a breadcrumb-like consistency in a blender or food processor 
1 oz. (about 14 crisps) Pringles Light Fat Free Potato Crisps, Barbecue (or another fat-free BBQ-flavored potato chip) 
3 tbsp. Frank's RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce 
dash onion powder 
dash garlic powder 
dash cayenne pepper 
dash black pepper 
dash salt 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Crush potato crisps completely and, in a small dish, mix with cereal crumbs. Add a dash of each of the seasonings and mix well. Place chicken pieces in a separate dish, and cover and toss with Frank's RedHot. Spray a baking pan with nonstick spray. Give each chicken piece a shake (so it's not dripping with RedHot), and then coat it evenly with the crumb mixture. Lay the battered nuggets on the baking pan. Place in the oven, and bake for 10 minutes. Then flip the wings over, and return them to the oven for 10 more minutes, or until outsides are crispy and chicken is cooked throughout. MAKES 2 SERVINGS
