If you thought Buffalo-style chicken was off limits because of its high fat and calorie content, think again! Hot sauce and a small amount of canola oil mix together to add big flavor to this chicken. Fat free yogurt serves as a lighter base for a blue cheese dipping sauce. A small amount of blue cheese added to the sauce provides all the flavor that is needed. This dish, which can be made in just 15 minutes, makes an excellent choice for a lightened tailgate or when you're having some folks over to watch the game.


Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)

6 oz

Hot pepper sauce

2 tsp, Louisiana-style

Canola oil

1 tsp

Table salt


Uncooked celery

2 rib(s), medium

Plain fat free yogurt

¼ cup(s)

Blue cheese

1 Tbsp, crumbled

Fresh parsley

1 tsp, chopped


  1. Cut the chicken into 8 thin strips on a long diagonal. Toss together the chicken, hot sauce, oil, and salt in a medium bowl until coated. Thread a chicken strip onto each of 8 (8- to 10-inch) metal skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes before use).
  2. Cut the celery lengthwise in half, then crosswise into thirds to make a total of 12 celery sticks. Stir together the yogurt and blue cheese in a serving dish, and set aside.
  3. Coat a nonstick ridged grill pan with cooking spray and set over medium heat. Place the skewers on the pan and cook the chicken just until cooked through, about 2 minutes per side.
  4. Arrange the blue cheese dressing, celery sticks, and chicken skewers on a platter. Sprinkle the dressing with the parsley.
  5. Serving size: 4 skewers, 2 1/2 tbsp dressing, and 6 celery sticks
