Instructions
Buffalo Chicken
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly beat eggs in a shallow bowl.
  3. In a separate shallow bowl, whisk together panko, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.
  4. One at a time, dip chicken tenders in egg and then dredge in panko mixture, making sure tenders are fully coated in mixture.
  5. Place chicken tenders on a baking rack atop a foil-lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

  6. While chicken is baking, combine hot sauce and butter in a small saucepan set over medium-low heat. Stir until butter is melted and combined with hot sauce. Pour mixture into a large bowl.
  7. Remove chicken from oven and toss in bowl with hot sauce until chicken is fully coated.
  8. Place chicken back on rack and return to oven for 8-10 minutes, until chicken is cooked through and registers at 160 degrees. Let chicken tenders cool a bit before slicing.
Blue Cheese Dressin
  1. In a small bowl, use a fork to mash together blue cheese, garlic, mayonnaise, and dijon mustard.
  2. Stir in buttermilk and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Salad Assembly

  2. Place 3-4 slices of buffalo chicken on salad and continue dividing carrots, celery, avocado, grape tomatoes, and brown rice among bowls.
