1 tsp

½ tsp

½ tsp

¼ tsp, smoked

fresh boneless skinless chicken tenderloins

uncooked carrot(s)

Instructions

  1. To make dip, combine first seven ingredients (yogurt, blue cheese, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and chives) in a bowl; chill until ready to use (can be made up to 2 days before serving).
  2. Next, combine salt, garlic, chili powder, and paprika in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly over chicken. Thread each piece of chicken lengthwise onto a 6-inch skewer. (Soak wooden skewers in water for 20 minutes before using to prevent burning.)
  3. Off heat, coat a grill or grill pan with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Cook chicken, flipping once, until cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side.
  4. When ready to serve, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium-low heat (or in microwave); stir hot sauce into melted butter. Brush cooked chicken evenly with butter mixture; drizzle any remaining butter mixture over top. Serve skewers and vegetables with dipping sauce, sprinkled with remaining chives.
  5. Serving size: 1 skewer, 1 ½ Tbsp dip and a few veggies
