  • Chicken:
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • 4 Crescent boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt
  • pepper
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • Sauce:
  • cup buffalo sauce (if you like more heat use hot sauce, like Frank’s brand)
  • cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cut chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces and season with salt and pepper.
  2. In separate bowls, place cornstarch and slightly beaten eggs. Dip chicken into cornstarch then coat in egg mixture. I have also found that you can put the cornstarch in a gallon sized bag and shake the chicken to coat.
  3. Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken until browned. Place the chicken in a 9 x 13 greased baking dish.
  4. In a medium sized mixing bowl, buffalo sauce, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, water, salt and red pepper flakes. Pour over chicken and bake for 1 hour.
  5. Stir the chicken every 15 minutes so that it coated them in the sauce.
