Skinny Buffalo Chicken Strips

Quick and easy – these buffalo chicken tenderloin strips are spicy and delicious! I like to serve them with blue cheese or ranch dressing and celery sticks on the side for a hot and spicy appetizer. Ted and I really enjoy these because they feel like your cheating, but they are so low calorie!!

Serves 4


  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp oil
  • 8 strips chicken tenderloin (12.5 oz)
  • 1/4 cup Frank’s Hot Sauce
  • 4 celery stalks, trimmed to 4 inch strips


Combine garlic powder, paprika, chili powder and black pepper in a medium bowl. Season chicken with spices and toss to evenly coat the chicken.

Heat half of the oil in a large non-stick sauté pan over medium-high heat, when hot add half of the chicken and cook until golden, about 3-4 minutes, turn chicken and cook until center is no longer pink. Set aside; repeat with remaining oil and chicken.

Pour the hot sauce over the chicken tossing well. Serve with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing if desired.
