Yesterday I went to Trader Joe's. Have I ever told you how much I love Trader Joe's? I love Trader Joe's! Now I did. I always walk out with too many things and items I obviously don't need. Such as....
Anyway, I really went to Trader Joe's for chicken. I have been craving buffalo sauce, I think it has been about a week since I had it last. Weird. Since it was hotter than sin (phrase trademarked by my mom) yesterday and still is today, I wanted to make something lighter that didn't use a lot of heat to whip up. I thought of Buffalo Chicken Salad but was hungrier than a salad for dinner. So, I made Buffalo Chicken Tacos. Yum.
Here's the breakdown....

And to end, TJ's Mini Mint Chip Mouthfuls! SO good.
Stay cool Minnesota. I really hope this heatwave is on it's way out! Stay tuned for the big move! : )
Buffalo Chicken Tacos
2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
4-6 taco shells
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tbs water
1 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup celery
1/2 cup cheddar/Monterey jack cheese
1/2 cup Franks Red Hot Sauce
1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
Green onion (optional)
Ranch dressing (optional)
Start by assembling the assembly line: mix flour, pepper and salt together one one plate. Egg and water on the middle plate then place the breadcrumbs on the last plate. Dredge one chicken breast at a time into the flour (coat), then egg (coat) and breadcrumbs (coat). Place in a preheated pan (about medium heat) with a drizzle of oil (canola, vegetable, olive). Cook until no longer pink in the middle.
Slice chicken into pieces. Drizzle with buffalo sauce. Place chicken and toppings into tortillas and serve as tacos.
