Try these buffalo chicken skewers for a fun and healthier alternative to traditional buffalo wings. The spicy buffalo chicken and cool blue cheese dip make the perfect combination. These yummy appetizers are sure to become a new fan favorite!
When I was trying to come up with some new appetizer recipes for the Super Bowl, I knew I wanted to take a traditional favorite and make it healthier. You know me…I’m always looking for cleaner alternatives!
The first thing that came to mind was buffalo chicken wings. I thought about my buffalo chicken salad recipe and knew Tom could help me execute something. If you have been following my blog, you know that I come up with a lot of ideas and Tom is the executor.
The result, easy buffalo chicken skewers with blue cheese dip. The hubby did an amazing job as usual!
Grilled buffalo chicken skewers are healthier than traditional buffalo wings which are usually fried in oil. They are also faster. These little buffalo chicken bites are so juicy and tender. I personally think they are tastier than wings!
The creamy cool blue cheese dip is made with yogurt and balances the spicy buffalo sauce perfectly. These portable game day skewers will definitely be a crowd pleaser at your Super Bowl party.
I was going to say you can use the leftovers to make buffalo chicken salad the next day. But believe me, there will be no leftovers, so you better make extras!;)
Buffalo Chicken Skewers with Blue Cheese Dip
- 1 lb skinless boneless chicken tenders
- 2 tbsp olive oil or butter
- 1 1/2 cups buffalo sauce I use Frank's
- carrot and celery sticks
- chives for garnish
- 10 medium size bamboo skewers, soaked for at least 30 minutes
Blue Cheese Dip
- 1/2 cup plain regular yogurt or plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp blue cheese, crumbled
For the Blue Cheese Dip
Mix yogurt, sour cream, and garlic together in a small bowl. Stir in blue cheese. Refrigerate until ready to use.
For the Chicken
Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Thread onto skewers forming a type of ribbon effect.
Combine hot sauce and butter in a small pan. Heat on the stove until just starting to boil. Remove from heat.
Grill chicken skewers for approximately 2 minutes on each side on a preheated medium-high grill. Turn and brush with the hot sauce and cook another 2 minutes on each side, brushing with the sauce. Continue grilling until chicken is cooked through, about 10-12 minutes total.
Garnish skewers and blue cheese dip with chives. Serve with celery and carrot sticks.
We recommend using organic ingredients whenever possible.
