Superbowl Party Recipes – Buffalo Chicken-on-a Stick

Serves 4

Kick things off with this easy appetizer. Buffalo Chicken-on- a -Stick can be grilled several hours in advance. Slice up some celery sticks for dipping, too. Increase this recipe as needed for your party; plan on ¼ pound chicken per person.


6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter
1/4-1/3 cup hot pepper sauce
1 ½ tablespoons cider vinegar
1 0.6 ounce envelope dry Italian salad dressing mix
1 pound chicken tenders, rinsed and patted dry
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Wooden skewers (soaked in water for 30 minutes to avoid burning)
Purchased blue cheese dressing
In a heavy saucepan, combine butter, hot sauce, cider vinegar and dressing mix. Stir over low heat until smooth. Taste and add more hot sauce if desired.

Preheat grill. Place chicken tenders in a large bowl; drizzle with vegetable oil. Toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Thread each chicken tender onto a wooden skewer. Grill on an oiled rack until cooked through and golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Brush generously with Buffalo Sauce in the last minutes of cooking. Serve with blue cheese dressing for dipping.
