Chicken Strips:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk Power Cakes
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 pounds chicken tenderloins

Honey Chipotle Sauce:

  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tablespoon white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons ground chipotle powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  • Whisk eggs together in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, combine Kodiak Cakes, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Remove tendon from each tenderloin then dip in egg, coat in Kodiak Cakes mixture, then place on prepared baking sheet.
  • Generously spray the tops of chicken pieces with nonstick cooking spray. Bake for 25 minutes, turning and spraying with cooking spray halfway through. Remove from oven and set aside.
  • While chicken bakes, make the sauce by whisking together all ingredients in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 2 minutes, or until sauce has thickened.
  • Pour sauce over cooked chicken strips and toss to coat. For a stickier coating, place pan in the oven on high broil for 1-2 minutes before serving.

    Tastes just like ones from Chili’s. Didn’t think they were too spicy. Yum!

    we loved this recipe! I did read the previous review about it being too spicey so I cut the ground Chipotle powder amount in half and it was perfect! My husband was obsessed with this chicken and said it is one of his favorites! I’d say if you have some sensitivity to spice, cut the chipotle powder is half and it’ll only have a very slight little kick but not burning at all.

    These were AMAZING. My husband doesn’t love chicken and I didn’t think I loved buffalo sauce. But we both agreed on this one! 🤩

    This sauce is fantastic! My entire family loved it!
    Not only did we use with it the tenders, but we put this on everything humanly possible! Definitely my favorite of all the tender sauces.!!!!

    We really liked the flavor but it was so spicy hot! Maybe there is a difference in chipotle powders? Next time I will half or quarter the chipotle powder but I will make this again!

    When the husband and the kid both clean their plates you know it’s a good one! I did knock the chipotle back a touch (probably not even by half) to make sure my 7 year old would eat it and she still loved it!
