Buffalo Chicken Bites - South Beach Diet

This is my adaptation of a recipe from The South Beach Diet's Parties and Holidays cookbook. There was also a recipe for blue cheese dipping sauce but I just served this with the store bought blue cheese dressing. Renee's has a nice one with big chunks of cheese in it. I'll have to remember to pick up a jar of that next time I go shopping. The chicken was delicious!

You can serve left over chicken the next day on a salad.

5 servings

5 chicken breast halves, cut into chunks
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons trans fat free margarine (or butter if you prefer)
2-3 tablespoons Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Wing sauce, butter flavour

Season chicken breast chunks with salt and pepper. Add olive oil to a nonstick pan and fry chicken on medium heat until cooked through.

In the meantime, mix margarine and hot sauce together.

When chicken is cooked, toss it in the margarine until coated. Serve with celery sticks and blue cheese dip.

Tip: You can use any hot sauce you like. Add more or less depending on your tastes. Also, if you're not on South Beach phase 1, you can serve carrot sticks as well. You could also use the sauce with wings.
