Ingredients

cooking spray

1 spray(s)

uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)

1¼ pound(s), cut into 16 strips total (or 1 1/4 lbs boneless, skinless tenderloins)

table salt

½ tsp

paprika

½ tsp

minced garlic

1 tsp

light butter

2 Tbsp

hot pepper sauce

4 tsp, or to taste

light blue cheese salad dressing

½ cup(s)

uncooked celery

4 rib(s), medium, trimmed, cut into 4 sticks each

Instructions

  1. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat.
  2. Place chicken on a plate and sprinkle with salt and paprika. Add chicken to skillet and cook, turning occasionally until lightly browned and cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic; reduce heat to low, stir and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  3. Remove skillet from heat; stir in butter and hot sauce until butter melts. Serve chicken with blue cheese dressing and celery on the side. Yields about 4 pieces of chicken, 4 celery sticks and 2 tablespoons of dressing per serving.

Notes

Consider using reduced-fat dressing for children; not fat-free.
