blue cheese and celery stuffed chicken with buffalo sauce

Oh my.. I am on a wing kick. Remember I did the buffalo chicken sandwiches with blue cheese celery slaw? This is similar, but no bun and a crunchy crust. Mmm, crunchy crust.

Now, before I go further… see those fries? My hubby picked them out and told me to do a post about them. Does me mentioning them count as a post? No?

They were store brand “fast food” style. Yep,they really said that.  And, yes… they tasted a lot like the ones from the golden arches… however much less salty. That’s because I don’t have one of those snowstorm salt shakers like they do..oh well.

Now, I have some naked chicken boobies here that have been stuffed. I over stuffed. Oh well..

I had to tie em up with string. Because I was out of toothpicks. I have no clue how I “ran out” of toothpicks… I mean, there is like 1,00,000 per box!!!!

Aww,man. I just remembered what I meant to buy at the dollar store earlier. Shallow plastic trays to dredge things with. Ugh. I needed them yesterday when I dredged these in flour.

These start off in a skillet, to get a nice crust… then you bake em in the oven. With your “fast food” style fries, of course. 😉

For the sauce, it’s a super healthy mix of melted butter and hot sauce. That’s good stuff….
