New Food Fridays #34 - Grilled Buffalo Chicken Sticks

Made: May 9th 2011
From: Betty Crocker Fun Summer Appetizers pg 39

2 Tablespoons of butter or margarine, melted
1/4 cup of original cayenne pepper sauce or re pepper sauce
1 Tablespoon of honey
1/2 teaspoon of celery seed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package (1lb) chicken breast tenders (not breaded)
1/2 cup blue cheese dressing

1 - In a medium bowl mix butter, pepper sauce, honey, celery seed and salt. Remove 2 tablespoons sauce mixture and set aside. Ad chicken to remaining sauce mixture and stir to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes but no longer than 2 hours.

2 - Meanwhile, soak ten 10 to 12 inch wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes.

3 - Brush grill rack with vegetable oil. Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove chicken from marinade and discard marinade. Thread each chicken tender on a skewer.

4 - Cover and grill chicken over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes, turning once and brush frequently with reserved sauce mixture, until no longer pink in center. Discard any remaining sauce mixture and serve chicken with blue cheese dressing.

Miranda's Mix Ups: These are meant as appetizers but I love them! So I made them as a "meal" for our Monday night group! I didn't have cayenne pepper sauce or red pepper sauce so I just used whatever pepper sauce I had in the fridge (I think chili pepper?). Still just as yummy and had a great kick to it!
