Number of Servings: 20

Ingredients

    2 Large Chicken Breast Halves, Shredded (approx 17 oz total)
    2 8 oz Blocks of Neufchatel Cheese (1/3 Fat Cream Cheese), softened
    1 C Fage 0% Plain Yogurt (Or other Greek Yogurt)
    8 oz Block of 2% Milk Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded, divided
    3/4 C Red Pepper Sauce (Suggested: Frank's Red Hot - Extra Hot)
    1 tsp Garlic Powder


    Celery hearts, chopped
    Pretzel Chips
    Pita Chips (Recommend Stacy's)

Tips

Many Buffalo chicken recipes call for canned chicken and pre-shredded cheese. Shredding the chicken and cheese yourself is a bit more effort but worth it as it cuts out many unhealthy fillers.

Additionally, I've found that pre-shredded cheese can become oiler when cooked (perhaps because it is coated with anti-clumping starches?). Plus, shredding your own cheese/chicken is cheaper!


Directions

1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees

2. Poach Chicken Breasts for approximately 30 minutes then shred.

While poaching chicken, shred cheddar cheese block. Put 3/4 C of shredded cheese to the side.

3. Mix all ingredients (besides 3/4 C of cheddar) together until well-blended. Transfer to 8x11 pan (or other baking pan).

4. Sprinkle the remaining 3/4 C of cheese evenly on top.

5. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, then Broil for 2 minutes to lightly brown the top of the cheese.

6. Serve with veggies/chips/bread of your choice. It was a hit with celery!
