It seems like we were just talking about the Holidays. Now here it is Super Bowl time!! Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Celery Sticks combine the best of Buffalo Chicken ingredients in an easy to eat a stuffed stick.
Buffalo wings are a football party mainstay. With a side of celery sticks, bleu cheese, and ranch. Why not put all those flavors into one easy to eat bite…no reason I can think of!!!!
Ground chicken is one of my favorite recipe ingredients, it just lends itself to whatever you want to create.
Super Bowl parties seem to get bigger and bigger every year, especially if your team is in the bowl! Snacks are a must-have, but you don’t want to spend all of your time in the kitchen preparing food.
This recipe can be made in advance and assembled just before game time. Don’t make the stuffed celery too far in advance, or the celery will wilt.
Brown, the ground chicken, then add a spicy hot sauce with just a tablespoon of cream cheese to give the meat a creamy texture. We used Sweet Baby Rays hot sauce, but Franks will work the same.
The recipe calls for a bunch of celery, but truth be told, I bought a bag of sticks that were already cut and ready to go. I just cut them in half as they were a bit longer than I wanted.
When browning the meat, be sure you break it up as you cook, so it has a fine texture. If you don’t, you won’t be able to get it stuffed into the celery.
I did trim off the backside of some of the sticks, so they sat flat. They may lie on their side if you don’t. Then all of the toppings will slide off your sticks.
Speaking of toppings, nothing could be easier than some crumbled blue cheese and a drizzle of ranch. Both are necessary for a real buffalo wing.
