Buffalo Jack Sauce

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup Jack Daniel’s® Black Label Tennessee Whiskey
  • 1/2 cup white grape juice
  • 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1/4 cup TABASCO® brand Buffalo Style Hot Sauce
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice concentrate
  • 3 tablespoons blackstrap molasses

Chicken Fingers

  • 2 quarts cooking oil
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup TABASCO® brand Buffalo Style Hot Sauce
  • 40 chicken tenders (about 3 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds


Sauce: Combine water and cornstarch in a medium saucepan and stir to dissolve cornstarch. Stir in remaining ingredients and bring to a slow simmer over medium heat; continue simmering until reduced by half or until sauce coats the back of a wooden spoon. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

Chicken Fingers: Pour oil into a deep-fat fryer or large saucepan and heat to 375°F. Combine flour, salt, and pepper in a bowl and mix well; set aside. In another bowl combine milk, eggs, and TABASCO® Buffalo Style Sauce; beat until smooth.

Dip chicken into egg mixture, then into flour mixture; repeat for a crispier batter. Gently lower chicken into hot oil and fry until golden brown and no longer pink inside. Drain on paper towels.

Toss fried chicken with sauce to coat evenly. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve immediately.

Makes 8 servings.
