Ingredients

  • 8 mini chicken breasts tenders
  • 300 ml | 10fl oz buttermilk
  • 150 g | 5 1/2 oz panko breadcrumbs
  • 130 | 4 1/2 plain all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp parprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne papper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • oil spray or a little vegetable oil optional
  • <br>
  • For the sauce
  • 200 g | 7oz hot chilli sauce Sriracha
  • 60 g | 2 oz unsalted butter
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • <br>
  • For the feta dip
  • 125 g | 4 1/2 oz feta cheese
  • 5 tbsp Greek yoghurt or sour cream
  • 1-2 tsp olive oil
  • finely chopped green onions scallions or chives to garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 190C (375F). Line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  • Put the breadcrumbs, flour, paprika, cayenne pepper, and salt in a large shallow bowl and mix to combine. Put the buttermilk in another bowl.
  • Dip a chicken tender into the buttermilk and then the breadcrumb mixture to coat. Make sure it is evenly coated and use two forks to carefully transfer onto the baking sheet.
  • Repeat until you have prepared all of the chicken.
  • Spray with a little oil or gently brush with a little vegetable oil (this is to help them colour - not essential). Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Prepare the sauce while the chicken is baking. Put all the ingredients in a saucepan and cook, stirring, over low heat until the butter melts. Let the sauce simmer for 5 minutes then take off the heat and set aside.
  • Remove the chicken from the oven and dip each piece into the sauce. Handle with care as the coating can easily come off.
  • Place back on the baking sheet and return to the oven for a further 5 minutes.
  • Transfer the chicken onto a wire rack to cool.
  • Place all the ingredients for the feta dip into a food processor and blitz until completely smooth.
  • Serve the chicken with the feta dip on the side and garnish with a handful of chopped chives or spring onions.
