Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Introduction

A great party dip that all my friends ask for everytime we have a cook out or party! A great party dip that all my friends ask for everytime we have a cook out or party!
Number of Servings: 16

Ingredients

    5 ounces cooked chicken breast, shredded or chopped
    4 oz fat-free cream cheese
    8 oz low-fat cream cheese
    1/2 cup reduced-fat blue cheese or ranch dressing
    1/2 cup shredded low-fat Cheddar cheese
    1/4 cup hot sauce

Tips

You can heat this in a slow cooker for two hours on low.

Directions

1. Heat oven to 350F.
2. Mix together cream cheeses. Stir in salad dressing, hot sauce and shredded cheese until well mixed. Stir in chicken.
3. Bake 20 minutes or until mixture is heated through. (I like to skim off any grease that has come to the top of the dish before stirring and serving.)


Serve with dry toasted pita or bagel chips, low fat crackers or vegetables.


This can also be prepared as above and microwaved 5-10 minutes instead of baking, if desired ... but I really like it baked.


*The nutritional information is for the recipe as listed, but you can substitute all Fat Free cheeses to lower the calories & fat ... but it does alter the finished taste/texture slightly. The N.I. does not include whatever you dip into the dip (crackers, veggies, etc.) I've estimated about 1/4 cup per serving ... which would be a very generous appetizer serving ... enough for several 'dips' per person.

    Hit of the party! I left out the chicken because of the vegetarians attending the party and everyone still loved it. It was served with tostitos scoops. I think I'll use a tad less ranch next time though. Still an A+! - 10/30/12

    made it as an appetizer for an informal dinner party. Everyone loved it! I served it in a bread bowl with diced french bread & wheat bread pieces. It's also excellent as leftovers. I just threw it back into the oven for 10 minutes. - 4/20/12

    I love this dip! It's always a big hit at parties and I like to keep it around for snacking with veggies too! I usually make it in the microwave or skillet instead of the oven. Only takes me about 10 minutes to get it heated through. - 7/9/09

    This recipe's great! I made it for a friend's birthday party and everyone loved it. Like some others, I doubled the amount of chicken, boiled it and shredded it. Used low-fat Ranch and Ken's Wing Sauce instead of hot sauce. Served with chicken crackers. It was delish! - 1/30/09

  • This recipe was a big hit when we had friends over to watch football last weekend! I used ranch dressing, and then added some blue cheese crumbles since my hubby and I are on opposite sides of the "ranch vs blue cheese" fence. I recommend dicing the chicken before cooking. - 9/2/14

  • I use just 8oz of lowfat cream cheese and a 13oz can of chicken- it's meatier than with the extra cream cheese & cuts down on the cals. Love this- can bake it or put in the crockpot! I prefer ranch dressing instead of bleu cheese- but might add bleu cheese crumbles instead of cheddar next time! - 2/7/11

    Was this review helpful?   yes  No
  • Fantastic! I used 2 chicken breasts which I boiled then chopped. I also combined some lite blue cheese dressing with some lite ranch to get the 'best of both worlds'. I used 2 8oz blocks of neuchatel (store was out of fat-free). Out of this world! I served with carrots, celery & bluecorn chips. - 1/18/11

Melted cream cheeses and ranch in oven then mixed in the rest. - 1/11/09

    Made this last night. I used a 13oz can of chicken though. 5oz not enough.I tend to like blue cheese crumbles better than blue cheese dressing for some reason so the dip tasted a little too strong of blue cheese for me, but was still good. Just not great. - 8/9/07
