"Buffalo chicken wings are a killer.  Wings are deep-fried, tossed with a  
 butter-based hot sauce and served with a mayonnaise/blue-cheese dip.  Here,
 chicken breasts are spiced up, broiled and served with a low-fat dip."

6   boneless, skinless chicken-breast halves (about 1-1/2 pounds)
Twenty-four (24) 6-inch wooden skewers
3   Tablespoons extra-light vegetable-oil spread (like Promise Extra Light)
1   Tablespoon EACH hot paprika and hot-pepper sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Blue Cheese Dip ingredients
3/4 cup nonfat cottage cheese
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese (1 ounce)

Accompaniments: jimcama, celery and carrot sticks

1.  Place chicken breasts on a cutting board so the tubular fillet (along
    outer edge of each breast half) faces up.  Pull the fillet from each
    breast.  Cut each breast lengthwise into thirds.  (When you're done,
    you'll have 24 strips - including fillets.)

2.  Thread chicken on skewers.  Wrap exposed ends of skewers with foil.
    Arrange chicken on a broiler rack.

3.  Melt spread in a small saucepan over low heat.  Stir in paprika, hot-
    pepper sauce and garlic powder.  Brush al over chicken.  Let stand
    30 minutes.

4.  Meanwhile, put all dressing ingredients except 2 tablespoons of the 
    blue cheese in a blender or food processor.  Blend until smooth, 
    scraping down sides of container once or twice as necessary.  Stir in
    remaining blud cheese.

5.  Turn broiler to high.  Broil chicken 4 inches from heat source 5 mins,
    turning once.  Remove foil from skewers.  Arrange chicken on a platter.
    Serve with Blue-Cheese Dip and vegetable sticks
