“Skinny” Buffalo Chicken Dippers? I know. I don’t know about “Skinny” but healthier for sure! I just get sick of saying everything is heathier. Plus, I got this recipe way back when…I did the South Beach Diet- ugh. My husband loved these. Actually needed these. When I wouldn’t let him eat the wings with all the skin and deep fried and all that goes with delicious Buffalo wings…this appeased the craving and felt good on his gut- and mine! Hence, “Skinny” Buffalo Chicken Dippers.
I love Buffalo flavors anyway, and have made lots of yummy apps like, these Buffalo Bites done 3 ways (they are wontons)…
But I love these little dippers that I’m sharing today because they are SO EASY, one little package of deliciousness, and are great as leftovers on a salad- there I said it. They go with salad.
So when you are surrounded by wings, dips, and all things fried…bring this to your next tailgate or football party with a salad, and you will have plenty to eat!
Now here’s the thing: If you are from anywhere near Buffalo, New York, you dip in Blue Cheese. It’s not even a question. You either dip in blue cheese dip, or nothing. There is no alternative.
Having moved to Massachusetts in my 20’s I was shocked and dismayed at the prospect of dipping a perfectly good wing into…Ranch. Nope.
But alas, twenty years later, I am nicer, and I cater to my guest’s wants and desires…so Ranch and Blue Cheese both have a seat at my table if I am serving wings. These Buffalo Chicken Dippers are the wings at my table this year, so I will of course have both dipping options. Here are the homemade versions:
My musts: Keep them separate and label them well!
Now….on to the chicken and how to make this deliciousness.
Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dippers
Cut the chicken up into bite-sized pieces that you can fit on a toothpick. Season.
Saute the chicken until cooked through, about 5-10 minutes and remove to a separate bowl.
Melt the butter, add the hot sauce, and stir until combined. Add the chicken back to the skillet andcook until bubbly and all the chicken is coated. Remove from the heat.
Cut the celery thin, into pieces like this:
Skewer a celery piece, and then a chicken piece. Continue until the plate is filled. Alternatively you can make a mound of chicken and serve the toothpicks and celery on the side, as that is amazingly delish too.
Now all your guest have to do is grab a toothpick, dip and put it on the plate- no mess. So easy. You’re welcome. Like I mentioned, this was a (affiliate link) South Beach Diet recipe that I adapted and don’t really know which exact cookbook it’s from, since I just make it from memory for the past 10 years, but if you want to see the original you can go to the library and check it out or see it on Amazon!
