Ingredients

Number of serving: 4
2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1/4 cup lowfat buttermilk

1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt (I used Greek yogurt to avoid the straining process)

1 tablespoon white vinegar

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese

Salt and freshly ground pepper


Bleu cheese dressing:

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1/4 cup lowfat buttermilk

1/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt (I used Greek yogurt to avoid the straining process)

1 tablespoon white vinegar

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Preparation

  • Preheat the broiler. Put the chicken between 2 sheets of waxed paper and pound with a mallet or hammer so the chicken is an even thickness of about 3/4-inch, then cut the chicken crosswise into 1/2-inch strips.
  • In a large bowl, combine the hot sauce and the oil, add chicken and toss until the chicken is well coated. Arrange the chicken on a baking sheet and broil until it is cooked through, about 4 to 6 minutes, turning once.
  • In a large bowl combine the Romaine, celery, shredded carrots and scallions. Toss with the dressing. Divide the greens between 4 plates, top with the chicken.
  • Serve with extra hot sauce.
  • Blue Cheese Dressing : Fold a full sheet of paper towel into quarters and put it into a small bowl. Spoon the yogurt onto the paper towel and place in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to drain and thicken.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the buttermilk and thickened yogurt into the mayonnaise until smooth. Add the vinegar and sugar and continue to whisk until all the ingredients are well combined.
  • Stir in the blue cheese and season, to taste, with salt and pepper.
