For all of you who don't know what Winger's is, well it's a lovely little diner in Utah, Idaho, and a couple other states and they are know for their spicy wings and "sticky fingers". Their sticky fingers are delicious chicken fingers drenched in their Famous sauce (aka Freakin Amazing Sauce). This sauce really does live up to its name of being Freakin Amazing!
I wanted to share my version of these delectable little bites with you because I think these would be a great appetizer or dish to share with friends for the upcoming super bowl. I made homemade chicken fingers which were super easy and very affordable, but if your in a time crunch you can always use breaded frozen chicken tenders also.
For the Chicken Tenders:
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cups panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
salt & pepper
For the Sauce:
3/4 cup Franks Hot Sauce (HAS to be Franks!)
1-1/2 cups brown sugar
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp. Honey
Preheat your oven to *350. Line a baking sheet with lightly greased foil.
Trim the chicken of any fat. Slice the chicken widthwise into 6-8 strips. In 3 seperate bowls, combine the flour and a little salt in the 1st bowl, whisk together egg and milk in the 2nd, and combine the panko bread crumbs and seasoning in the 3rd. Take each strip and dip into the flour, then egg wash, then dredge in the bread crumbs. Repeat with each strip.
Bake the strips for 25-30 minutes. While the chicken is baking combine all the ingredients for the sauce together and set aside.
As soon as the chicken is done baking, pour sauce over each chicken tender till they are completely covered with sauce. Serve with a side of celery and extra sauce for dipping.
*We like to combine some of the Freaking Amazing Sauce with some Ranch and you've got yourself some Creamy Freaking Amazing Sauce, which Seriously is AMAZING!!!
