French’s sent me some of their Crunch Time Entrées to try out. My favorite was the buffalo chicken flavor, since I love hot sauce and all things spicy.

The Crunch Time Entrées come with the breading and sauce. You will also need 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.

Some notes….

I used chicken 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 of Crunch Time Entrées in the pantry to have on hand for last-minute meals.

What side should I pair my buffalo chicken with?

  1. 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.

    1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.
