  • step-by-step directions
Buffalo Chicken Kebabs with Celery Blue Cheese Salad
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs (cut into 1 inch cubes)
  • 1/2 cup buffalo hot sauce
  • 2 cups sliced celery (peeled and then sliced 1/8 inch thick on a bias)
  • 1/4 cup finely sliced scallions
  • 1 jalapeno (thinly sliced)
  • 1/4 cup parsley leaves (torn)
  • 1/2 cup crumbles blue cheese
  • olive oil
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 bamboo skewers (soaked in water for 1 hour)
  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Place the seasoned pieces in a gallon-sized bag and add the hot sauce. Seal the bag and marinate the chicken for 2-3 hours or overnight.
  • The next day, remove the chicken from the fridge and allow it to rest at room temperature, for about 30 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken from the bag and add about 4 pieces to each skewer. Lightly drizzle with olive oil.
  • Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium high heat. Add the skewers to the grill, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Flip, recover, and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Remove to a platter to rest for 5 minutes, tented with foil, before serving.
  • Meanwhile make the salad by combining the celery, scallions, jalapenos and parsley leaves. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Gently fold in the blue cheese.
  • Serve the skewers on top or alongside the celery salad.
  • Tip: Substitute your favorite marinade if you're not a buffalo sauce fan!
