Sadly, I only discovered buffalo chicken a few years ago. It was one of those "OMG where have you been all my life?" moments and I've been obsessed with it ever since. And since that time, I have tried a lot of buffalo chicken recipes, including many that were far from healthy and low-fat.
But that all changed when I added my shredded buffalo chicken mixture to celery sticks and these Skinny Buffalo Chicken Celery Sticks (Weight Watchers appetizer) was born! It's 0 points on the blue plan!
Have you ever found yourself at a social gathering, desperately scanning the spread of food for something that's even vaguely healthy (that won't blow the entire WW points bank)? And if you're the least bit lucky, you may find a tray of veggies and dip, in amongst all the fattening, unhealthy stuff. BORING! But stuffed celery, with yummy buffalo chicken, is far from boring!
Game day food is fun and plain old veggies and dip are just not. This Weight Watchers appetizer is both fun and healthy! Buffalo chicken appetizers feel like game day food. But the best part is that if you munch on these guys, you'll still have plenty of points left over to indulge in some wine (or whatever your beverage of choice is!) This healthy game day snack is low-carb, keto friendly, gluten-free and 0 points on the WW blue plan!

Although I've always been a celery fan (especially dipped in veggie dip), I was never a big fan of 'ants on a log' (that peanut butter and raisin celery thing), or celery with Cheez Whiz, which seemed to be the only 2 other options around (besides dip), for the majority of my life. But this buffalo chicken mix elevates celery to entirely new level of deliciousness! I only wish I discovered buffalo chicken celery sticks years ago.
This recipe uses leftover rotisserie chicken, which saves you hassle and time! Leftover rotisserie chicken recipes are the best, especially when they involve buffalo chicken. And it's actually such a hassle to cook up chicken or chicken breasts that I'll even buy a rotisserie chicken just for this recipe. Then I end up with chicken leftovers for sandwiches or for these delicious WW friendly Easy Chicken Quesadillas (which also make a great game day snack)!
For this recipe, you'll need:
- leftover rotisserie chicken (or use canned chicken breast)
- buffalo sauce * I use Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce
- fat-free cream cheese
- minced garlic
- Worcestershire sauce
How many calories in celery sticks?
There's about 15 calories in 2 celery sticks and 44 calories for 2 of these Buffalo Chicken Celery Sticks. That's 0, yes ZERO points on the WW blue plan!
- This stuffed celery can be made a day in advance, but I would not make it much more in advance if you plan to stuff it. However, it will last in the fridge, in a sealed container, for up to 3 days, if you store the mix and the celery sticks separately.
- I do NOT recommend freezing this!
So, if you are looking for a celery sticks recipe or a quick and satisfying weight watchers appetizers, then give these Buffalo Chicken Celery Sticks a try! You may also want to try my Weight Watchers Friendly Tortilla Pinwheels, which you can also make with leftover rotisserie chicken (or canned chicken breast). Why not bring them to the party yourself, then you know you'll be guaranteed something delicious and WW friendly!
