In my quest to make restaurant-style favorites at home, this is one of my many attempts, but the first in my new journey.
First, I used 5 pieces of diced buffalo-style chicken that were leftover from our Homemade Applebee’s Style Boneless Buffalo Wings.
We had quite a bit leftover so I put them in a Ziploc freezer bag and put them in the freezer for another time.

- 2 TBSP Fat Free Ranch dressing
- Cut up the chicken into cubes. Each breast should yield about 6 pieces.
- Take the chicken pieces and put them in the bag with the shake n bake mixture. Shake, and bake according to the box instructions.
- While they are cooking, in a skillet mix 1 cup hot sauce with ¼ c of light margarine.
- You can adjust this according to your own tastes and depending on how wet or dry you like your wings.
- Melt the butter and mix with the hot sauce.
- Once the chicken pieces are done baking put them in the skillet to coat them with the sauce. That’s all there is to it.
- This was the first time I made this, and I did not get it from a recipe book so you can modify it to your tastes.
