Can I get that Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe?

In Uncategorized on November 16, 2010 at 7:05 pm

I had some grilled chicken leftover from dinner last night. So as a special treat for my work friends, I thought I would make a batch of Buffalo Chicken Dip.  It was quite a hit at snack time and lunch!  My friend, Heidi, asked for the recipe.

 

Buffalo Chicken Dip

1 block Cream Cheese

1 Cup Ranch Dressing

3/4 Cup Chicken Wing Sauce

1/2 package dry Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Mix

1/2 lb. cubed/shredded Chicken (1 large breast)

1 Cup shredded Cheddar Cheese

In a medium mixing bowl, mix the cream cheese, Ranch Dressing, dry dressing mix, and Chicken Wing Sauce.  STir in chicken.  Spread onto the bottom of a pie plate or 8×8 pyrex dish.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Sprinkle with Cheddar Cheese, continue baking until cheese is melted.

Serve with Fritos Scoops or tortilla chips.

There are lots of variations of this recipe and they are all delicious!  Especially if you are a fan of buffalo wings.  I modified this recipe a bit for the batch I made today. I doubled up on cream cheese- 1 block fat free and 1 block 1/3 less fat and doubled the chicken (leftover grilled chicken and a can of chicken) and I used ½ a packet of Hidden Valley SPICY Ranch Dressing mix.  Any way you decide to mix up the ingredients is good!!

Also, here is a fat-free version that you can find on HungryGirl.com.  I’ve made this a few times.  It’s not as good as the recipe above, but if you are watching your fat/calories, it’s close enough!
