Healthyfied Hot Wing Skewers

October 3, 2012

I LOVE hot wings. There have been times in my past that we’ve gone out somewhere to eat and that’s what I have ordered as my entree – true story! I know, I’m crazy, but I love all things spicy. I do not however love the fat and calories that come with a traditional “hot wing”. I make hot wings on special occasion but grill them instead of frying them. Here is a pan we enjoyed last Fall. (Excuse these pictures they are ollld)

My aunt started grilling her wings not too long ago (because she has a fabulous big green egg) and they are so good! I wondered how I could satisfy my craving on a more regular basis without affecting my waistline and came up with this recipe. I still make the grilled wings when feeling froggy but these make a great, fun appetizer and are a healthy replacement to the wing.

8-10 chicken breast tenders, diced
1 tsp msg free dry bbq rub seasoning 
1 cup franks hot sauce
bbq skewers
celery and bell pepper sticks
ranch/blue cheese dressing

Dice tenders into 2 inch chunks. Marinate chicken in 2/3 cups sauce and seasoning for at least an hour. Place chicken on skewers, grill on each side until chicken is done (you can also use an indoor grill pan). Once cooked through, remove from pan, coat with another layer of sauce (if desired) and serve with celery, bell pepper sticks and dressing of your choice. Enjoy!
