Buffalo Chicken Tenders

I served these with the mac and cheese for a lighter version of a restaurant meal. (hey, we like "kid" food!!) We liked them--serve with more buffalo sauce if you really like that stuff. I don't really like plain buffalo sauce that much, so the small amount on the chicken is the way to go for me.

Baked Buffalo Chicken Tenders
1/3 cup flour
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper
1 egg white
1/3 cup buffalo sauce
1/3 cup plain bread crumbs
2 chicken breasts (or six tenderloins)-- cut the chicken breasts into thirds if you use them
Preheat oven to 375.
Prepare three shallow dishes: one with flour, salt, and pepper, next with buffalo sauce and egg white mixed together, and last with bread crumbs.
Dip the chicken tenders into flour mix, then sauce mix, then bread crumbs, then place on baking sheet.
Bake for 25 minutes, flipping halfway through. Serve with extra buffalo sauce or bleu cheese.
