My Buffalo Chicken recipe gives you the delicious kick of traditional Buffalo Wings without all the extra junk (like the 1,030-calorie price tag). It’s the perfect appetizer for a party or if you just want to have bar-like fare while watching a ball game at home.
- Prep time
- Total Time
- ¼ cup of your favorite hot sauce
- ½ teaspoon paprika
- Dash cayenne pepper (optional)
- 1 pound chicken tenders
BLEU CHEESE DIP
- 6 ounces nonfat plain Greek yogurt
- ¼ cup blue cheese, crumbled
- ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- Ground black pepper (to taste)
Preheat the oven to 375°. Coat a baking dish with nonstick oil spray and set aside.
In a bowl, mix the hot sauce and paprika (only add optional cayenne if you like serious heat!).
Coat each tenderloin with sauce and set it in the baking dish, forming in a single layer. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink inside.
While chicken is cooking, make dip by mixing Greek yogurt, bleu cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper until velvety smooth.
*Note: For celiac disease, check hot sauce label to ensure it’s gluten-free.
A serving is 3 ounces of chicken plus 2 tablespoons of dip
