Take the spiciness of this kid-favorite dish down a notch by adding just a few drops of hot sauce to the mixture. Fat-free ranch instead of the fat-free blue cheese adds even more to the cool factor.
1 spray(s) cooking spray
1 1/4 pound(s) uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 16 strips total (or 1 1/4 lbs boneless, skinless tenderloins)
1/2 tsp table salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp minced garlic
2 tbsp fat-free margarine
4 tsp hot pepper sauce, or to taste
1/2 cup(s) fat-free blue cheese dressing
4 medium stalk(s) celery, trimmed, cut into 4 sticks each
  • Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat.
  • Place chicken on a plate and sprinkle with salt and paprika. Add chicken to skillet and cook, turning occasionally until lightly browned and cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add garlic; reduce heat to low, stir and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Remove skillet from heat; stir in margarine and hot sauce until margarine melts. Serve chicken with blue cheese dressing and celery on the side. Yields about 4 pieces of chicken, 4 celery sticks and 2 tablespoons of dressing per serving.
  • Consider using reduced-fat dressing for children; not fat-free.
