French’s sent me some of their Crunch Time EntrĂ©es to try out. My favorite was the buffalo chicken flavor, since I love hot sauce and all things spicy.
The Crunch Time EntrĂ©es come with the breading and sauce. You will also needÂ an egg (lightly beaten), 2 tablespoons of flour (add to the breading), and 1.5 pounds of chicken breast (cut into strips).
The three steps are easy: coat it, bake it, and top it.
I used chickenÂ tenderloins that I cut into two. I wanted them to be about the size of chicken nuggets, so they’d be more appealing to Baby J (the boy loves chicken nuggets).
Also, in the photos below, I’ve halved the recipe. Hubby is still away for Navy training, so it’s just Baby J and I. Half of the bread crumbs and half of the sauce went into jars that I refrigerated (well, the sauce, not the crumbs) for a later meal.
Finally, I left the sauce off a few of the chicken pieces, because I knew the buffalo sauce would probably be too hot for Baby J.
Simple, isn’t it? It was delicious too. Yes, I like to cook from scratch, but I like the idea of keeping a couple ofÂ Crunch Time EntrĂ©es in the pantry to have on hand for last-minute meals.
What side should I pair my buffalo chicken with?
These look easy and yummy. Can’t wait to try them in our kitchen!! Thanks for sharing this one!
These look like something the hubby and teen would like at my place. đŸ™‚
Spicy is good here too. đŸ˜‰
I love buffalo chicken anything.. i had it on Sunday, buffalo chicken salad.. I like this recipe because the hot sauce is not necessarily have to be on the chicken and it looks good with or without it.
These sound really good and I will certainly be trying to make them for me!
they look VERY easy enough….. đŸ˜€
That looks great and it looks like more chicken than batter, so therefor a little bit healthier. I would say pair it with a good rice dish! đŸ˜‰
It could be that I just didn’t use enough of the batter…I don’t know if you saw my note, but I actually halved the recipe. I might have put too much to the side, oops! But healthy is definitely good. =D And good idea on the rice.
I dnt like Buffalo chicken… but this reminds me of KFC chicken bucket … lol
Need to try this at least once
They have several other flavors too, if Buffalo’s not your thing. đŸ™‚
These look like something Matt would eat. I am not a huge chicken lover but Matt would definitely be a fan of these!! Thanks for sharing the recipe and providing lots of photos along the way!
I had no idea that Frenches made this, I would love to try it. My family would really love this, I know it! We love these with ranch dipping sauce and corn on the cob! The chicken is even great chopped up in a salad too.
That looks crunchy and definitely a keeper. I want to try this out and it is so easy to make plus the ingredients are easy to gather.
Oh that is just the easiest. I like easy recipes a lot. I’m not sure what I’d dip that in actually. I tend to go for BBQ.
That looks really good! I love crispy foods, it’s the southern in me. lol
I cannot find this product anywhere and was told it was discontinued…..can you tell me if that is true or let me know how to get the buffalo chicken kit…thanks so much
