    Buffalo Chicken Bites (Phase 1)
    Description
    What would a good football game be without the familiar taste of the devilishly spicy chicken that hails from upstate New York?
    Prep time: 15 minutes
    Cook time: 10 minutes
    Makes 8 (3-skewer) servings
    Ingredients
    3 tablespoons trans-fat-free margarine
    2 tablespoons hot pepper sauce, or more to taste
    1 teaspoon canola oil
    3 (6-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 24 (1") cubes
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    3 celery stalks, cut into 24 (1") pieces
    Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce (see directions below)
    Instructions
    Melt margarine in a medium nonstick saucepan. Whisk in hot pepper sauce and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until slightly thickened; set aside.
    Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper, add to pan, and cook, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides, about 6 minutes. Add margarine mixture to pan and gently toss chicken until well coated, 1 to 2 minutes.
    Remove chicken from pan and skewer each cube with a toothpick. Skewer 1 piece of celery at the base of each. Arrange on a platter and serve with dip.
    Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce (Phase 1)
    Makes 1/2 cup
    Make-Ahead: Dip can be made up to 1 day ahead; refrigerate in a covered container and serve chilled or at room temperature.
    Ingredients
    2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
    1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
    2 tablespoons mayonnaise
    1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
    1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
    Hot pepper sauce
    Instructions
    Mash blue cheese in a medium bowl, leaving some small lumps. Whisk in the sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, vinegar, and hot pepper sauce to taste. Transfer to a small bowl and serve with the chicken.

    That sounds good.

    One of the things I hate about Buffalo wings/wing dings/whatever you call them in your neck of the woods is that they are mostly bone, with a few tiny pieces of chicken and skin clinging to them. I never understand why people like them so much.

    In general, meat on the bone is always tastier. I love buffalo wings, always dipped in blue cheese dressing, chased with a beer.
