These Buffalo Bleu Cheese Chicken Skewers are the perfect appetizer or main course the next time you’re craving chicken wings! Baby carrots and large slices of celery are roasted while bite size pieces of chicken tenders are browned and sauteed in a delicious buffalo bleu cheese dip. Everything is then loaded onto skewers and sprinkled with additional bleu cheese before serving.
Don’t get me wrong, I love chicken wings. They’re the perfect game treat, a great appetizer at a sports bar – you get the gist. The part I don’t like? The mess! I believe it to be impossible to eat a chicken wing in any sort of ladylike fashion. In fact, if you know how to accomplish this, please let me know!
So I came up with a plan to enjoy all the flavors of chicken wings but without the mess and possibly even better, without the frying. Crudite included!
Baby carrots and large slices of celery are roasted while bite size pieces of chicken tenders are sauteed and then tossed with Robert Rothschild Farms Buffalo Bleu Cheese Dip. Everything is then loaded onto skewers and sprinkled with additional bleu cheese before serving. What can I say, I’m a sucker for stinky cheese! And for good measure, extra dip is included on the side.
These Buffalo Bleu Cheese Chicken Skewers make for a great appetizer or even a main course. Just think how awesome they’d be served with your favorite potato or even rice!

I’ve roasted carrots a million times, but celery? That was something fun to try! It might be my new favorite way to enjoy it as it caramelizes and becomes sweeter as it roasts.
