Buffalo Chicken Dip

What did everyone think about the Superbowl? What was your favorite commercial and how’d you like Madonna’s halftime performance?

Personally, my favorite part of the Superbowl holiday now is the Puppy Bowl!! I’m sure you’re not at all shocked.

Dahv and I were invited to our best friends’ house in Delaware to watch the big game and hang out with some friends. This was the perfect opportunity for me to make my famous Buffalo Chicken Dip and share it with all of you! This dip can be a little expensive to make, but it will be totally worth it when your guests can’t get enough of it.

Ingredients:

2 Chicken Breasts

2 8oz pkg 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese

1 cup Light Ranch Dressing

1 cup Frank’s Red Hot Sauce

1 5oz pkg Crumbled Blue Cheese

3 stalks of Celery, diced

Cayenne Pepper

Ground Black Pepper

2 Cups Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Any of the following snacks are great for dipping: Sliced Pita, Tortilla Chips, Corn Chips, Crackers, & Celery.

The best part about this recipe is that you can modify so many ways to fit your personal taste. You don’t have to use the reduced fat products, or you can use all of them… you can take out the celery, blue cheese, shredded… any combination! I’ve been making this dip since college and I’ve found this specific recipe is the best.

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Boil the chicken breasts, and then shred them using two forks. Put aside.
Combine the Cream Cheese, Ranch, and Hot Sauce in a blender or food processor. Mix until well combined.
Taste the mixture and see if you like the degree of spiciness and flavor. Add cayenne, ground pepper, or anything else you’d like and mix.
Stop blending. Add most of the blue cheese, the celery, and the shredded chicken into the mixture. Stir until well combined. Dump the mixture into a baking dish or reusable foil container sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake in the oven at 350 for about 20-25 minutes. Take the dip out of the oven, give it a good stir, and add the remaining blue cheese and sprinkle with desired amount of shredded cheddar.
You can now serve the dip or you can put it back in the oven on LOW. You don’t want to overcook the cheese topping because it will be hard to get through the top layer when you’re dipping!

This batch was a huge hit at the Superbowl party!
