Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Ranch dressing can be used instead of the blue cheese. If you're serving this salad to small children, omit the chili powder. Instead, sprinkle the chicken tenders with a little paprika or mixed dried herbs.
  • tip 2
    The appetizer that this recipe is based on, Buffalo Chicken Wings, originated at theAnchor Bar in Buffalo, New York. This famous recipe consists of deep-fried chicken wings served in a spicy hot sauce and served with blue cheese dressing.
