    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.

    What a neat idea, SLW!
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers
