The Most Delicious Buffalo Chicken Dip – Everrr!

8 Oct

Monday is here again… it always feels like the weekends fly by, doesn’t it? I hope you had a great weekend. We had my boyfriends cousin visiting from New York, and I’m pretty sure I’ve never drank as many mimosa’s as I did this weekend!

Also, if you’re in the Richmond area….. you really must check out Godfrey’s Drag Brunch!!! It was such a fun show and we had a blast singing along with the girls!!!! It was kind of the highlight of my weekend (I can’t wait to go back)!

Saturday night was a close second, though. We went to a friend’s fall inspired party and spent hours upon hours soaking up the heat from the best bonfire I’ve ever seen in a neighborhood setting! Everyone brought a dish, and I decided to make Buffalo Chicken Dip — huge hit, and it was demolished within minutes of laying it out! This is suchhhh and easy recipe, so you really have to try it!

Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Chicken Dip

FRANK'S® REDHOT® BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP

via

What You’ll Need:

  • 8 oz. pkg.cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese or ranch salad dressing
  • 1/2 cupFRANK’S® REDHOT® Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce or FRANK’S® REDHOT® Buffalo Wing Sauce
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese or shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 cans (12.5 oz. each)SWANSON® White Premium Chunk Chicken Breast in Water, drained

**This recipe is taken directly off of the Frank’s RedHot website. I used ranch salad dressing instead of blue cheese, Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wing Sauce (soooo good!), shredded mozzarella cheese instead of blue cheese, and rather than using canned chicken I boiled and shredded my own. I used and extra cup of cheese, added about 1/2 cup extra of hot sauce and ranch dressing, and an extra cup of chicken.

What You’ll Do:

  • HEAT oven to 350°F. Place cream cheese into deep baking dish. Stir until smooth.
  • MIX in salad dressing, Frank’s RedHot Sauce and cheese. Stir in chicken.
  • BAKE 20 min. or until mixture is heated through; stir. Garnish as desired.
  • Serve with veggies or chips — my favorite way to eat this dip is with Frito’s! (fat kid status – it’s also good on a sub roll as a sandwich… if you ever have any left over!)

TIPS:

Reduced Calorie Recipe: Substitute neufchatel cheese for the cream cheese, and low fat options for the salad dressing and blue cheese.

Microwave Directions: Prepare as above. Place in microwave-safe dish. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 5 min. until hot, stirring halfway through cooking. 

Slow Cooker Method: Combine ingredients as directed above. Place mixture into small slow cooker. Cover pot. Heat on HIGH setting for 1 1/2 hours until hot and bubbly or on LOW setting for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Stir.

Tailgating Tip: Prepare dip ahead and place in heavy disposable foil pan. Place pan on grill and heat dip until hot and bubbly.

Tip: You may substitute 2 cups shredded cooked chicken.
