Sweet Buffalo Brown Sugar Sauce:
Apple Cider Vinegar
¼ - ½
Red Pepper Flakes
Sliced Green Onions
Cut chicken into bite-size pieces. Sprinkle with salt. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a shallow dish, whisk eggs until combined. Dip chicken into egg mixture. Place cornstarch in a large Ziploc bag and add cayenne pepper. Shake it up. Add chicken pieces and shake to completely coat.
Heat oil in large saucepan. Once the oil is hot, add coated chicken. Cook for 2-4 minutes until golden. Place in a 9 x 13 pan.
To make the sauce, in a small bowl, whisk together buffalo sauce, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, and red pepper flakes. Coat chicken with sauce and toss to coat.
Bake for 35-45 minutes or until chicken is completely cooked through and crispy. Stir and toss with sauce every 15 minutes. Sprinkle green onions over the top of chicken.
