NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup light sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Chicken:
  • 12 chicken tenders, about 12 ounces
  • 1/2 cup Louisiana hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce, recipe follows
  • 4 ribs celery, cut into 3-inch lengths
Directions
Dipping Sauce:
  • Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, mixing well. With the back of the mixing spoon, mash the blue cheese into the sour cream until almost all of the lumps are gone. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.

  • Chicken:

  • Soak the chicken in the hot sauce in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Put the flour in a pie tin and season with salt and Cajun seasoning. Remove chicken from hot sauce, shake off excess, and dredge chicken in the flour. Set on a baking rack.

  • Heat the butter and oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When the butter has stopped bubbling, add the chicken tenders and cook until golden and cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Remove from the pan and drain on paper towels. Serve warm with blue cheese dipping sauce and celery pieces.
