Light Buffalo Chicken Fingers

I am on a roll with the weight watcher recipes lately, they actually have a ton of good ones which is one thing I love about the program. These Buffalo chicken fingers didn't disappoint and, although a little messy for a finger food, they were quite satisfying. I wasn't sure how the fat free blue cheese dressing was going to be but it wasn't bad at all on the chicken. Serve this with some oven fries and you have a great healthy version of a classically high-fat meal.
1 spray cooking spray
1 1/4 pounds 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 (I used a lot more than this) 
1/2 cup fat-free blue cheese dressing
4 medium stalks 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 and chicken is coated with the sauce. 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.

Servings: 4
Points: 4
