If you’re looking for the perfect snack to add to your tailgate menu, look no further. These buffalo chicken celery “spoons” are healthy and satisfying. You can make quite a few of these with little effort or skill in the kitchen. These come together in only a few minutes and include common ingredients found in your pantry.
When I think of what to serve at a tailgate, I think chicken wings, pizza, and sliders. This app gives you the same satisfying taste of chicken wings, but with much less cholesterol and fat. Rather than use chicken wings or thighs, I’m using chicken breast meat, mixed with greek yogurt and buffalo sauce.
Also, is there a more perfect pairing to buffalo chicken than a celery stick? I think not! Adding the buffalo chicken to the celery stalk is not only delicious and palate-cleansing but conveniently keeps your hands clean.
