When I make this tangy buffalo chicken breast, I have to double this baked buffalo chicken recipe because it disappears so fast. Better to have leftovers, especially since they make great sandwiches and salads. —Beth Zimmerman, Willingboro, New Jersey

  • 3/4 cup Buffalo wing sauce, divided
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/4 cups panko bread crumbs


  1. Pour 1/3 cup wing sauce into a shallow dish. Add chicken and turn to coat. Let stand 15 minutes or refrigerate, covered, up to 24 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°. Drain chicken, discarding marinade. In a shallow bowl, mix flour, tarragon and pepper. Place bread crumbs and remaining wing sauce in separate shallow bowls. Dip chicken in flour mixture to coat all sides; shake off excess. Dip in wing sauce, then in bread crumbs, patting to help coating adhere.
  3. Place chicken on a rack in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake until a thermometer reads 165°, 25-30 minutes.
