          Tacos
  1. In bowl, whisk egg and 1/8 c milk until froth appears.
  2. In another bowl, mix flour, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt.
  3. Spray cooling rack over your sink with cooking oil spray until well-coated. You could also grease with shortening or butter. Set over foil-lined jelly roll pan. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  4. Dip pieces of chicken in egg mixture, then coat in flour mixture. Lay pieces on cooling rack. Spray pieces with cooking spray. Flip chicken over with tongs and spray their other side.
  5. Bake chicken at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes, or until outsides have lightly browned and crisped.
  6. In bowl, mix chopped romaine, diced avocado, chopped celery and green onions. Squeeze half of a lime over mixture and toss to coat. Sprinkle with a tiny bit of salt.
  7. Melt butter in medium glass bowl. Add buffalo hot sauce. Mix.
  8. Add cooked chicken pieces to buffalo butter sauce, toss until chicken is well coated.
  9. Assemble tacos by layering lime salad, buffalo chicken, blue cheese ranch dressing, and garnish with blue cheese crumbles. Serve immediately.
Notes
These can be made a little healthier and faster by omitting the battered/baked chicken part. Simply cook your diced chicken with a little salt and pepper, then cook with the buffalo and butter sauce.
