Guiltless Buffalo Chicken

This buffalo chicken has all the goodness of wings without the guilt. It makes for the perfect party plate.

4 boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-2” pieces

3 T. Greek yogurt

1 t. honey

2 T. hot sauce

1 T. butter, melted

1 T. plus 1 1/2 t. olive oil

2 celery stalks, trimmed

1/2 t. lemon juice

1 T. green onions, chopped

1 T. blue cheese, crumbled

Salt and pepper

Combine chicken with yogurt, honey and 1 T. hot sauce.  Place in ziplock bag and let sit in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.  Remove from bag and pat dry with paper towels.  Season with salt and pepper.

Heat 1 T. olive oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat.  Add chicken and let sear until browned.  Flip and let cook through and brown on the other side.  Remove from heat and let rest.

Using a mandoline or carefully with a knife, slice celery very thinly. Thin slices are the secret to this salad. Toss with remaining 1 1/2 t. olive oil, lemon juice, green onions, blue cheese and salt and pepper and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine butter and remaining 1 T. hot sauce to make buffalo sauce.

Place celery salad and chicken on a plate and drizzle with buffalo sauce.  Enjoy!
