Buffalo Chicken Tacos

Who doesn't like buffalo wings?  Well, besides me?  I don't like chicken wings at all, buffalo or any other style. But I do like boneless wings, aka cut up chicken breasts tossed in buffalo sauce.  This recipe is a healthy way to eat them.  For the kids, I just took some chicken out before I tossed it all in the sauce.  It would definitely have been too hot for them! 

1 pound chicken breasts, skinless, boneless, cut into 1 inch pieces 
1/3 cup flour
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon garlic powder 
1/3 cup buffalo wing sauce (Frank’s Buffalo Wing was what I used)
1 Tablespoon olive oil
flour tortillas

green onions

Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat.

In a large bowl, combine cornstarch, flour, cayenne, and garlic powder. Season the chicken pieces with a little salt and pepper, then dredge in the flour mixture.

Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the Dutch oven and once it gets hot, add chicken and cook on both sides – about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Once the chicken is done, turn off the heat and throw in the buffalo wing sauce. Add a little bit of water if the sauce is too thick when it hits the hot pan.
