Buffalo Chicken Dip


You've probably seen or had this recently because
Buffalo Chicken Dip is the new Artichoke Spinach Dip
It's freakin' amazing
and
Totally bad for you
Everything in moderation, right?

Here's my version:

Ingredients:
Two 8oz blocks of cream cheese- softened
1 cup ranch dressing
1 cup buffalo sauce (I use Franks)
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar plus 1/2 cup more for top

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

I use my standmixer for this one because I use my stand mixer for everything but you could also use a handheld or if you're a really good stirrer you can mix it by hand. First you are going to blend one block of softened cream cheese with the ranch dressing. Then add the buffalo sauce and the second block of cream cheese. I do it separately because the cream cheese has less of a chance of clumping when you do it this way. After those ingrediants are well blended you can slowly stir in your chicken. (I cook mine in a skillet and then shred with a fork) Once the chicken is in you can add your cheese.

Pour mixture into an oven safe casserole dish or cake pan. Top mixture with 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar. Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes.

Serve dip hot with tortilla chips and celery sticks.

*Note* The first time I made this I forgot to defrost chicken so I used canned chicken because a lot of the recipes out there tell you to. I hated it this way, I thought it gave it a weird metallic taste. If your short on time I recommend buying a rotisserie chicken and shredding it instead. Also a lot of recipes also add blue cheese. I would love to try this but I've got a bunch of picky eaters on my hands. I think it would be really good crumbled on top instead of the cheddar.

  2. I love this dip! That last paragraph is so funny because I made it with canned chicken too the first time I made it for my niece's birthday party - and will never do it again! Everyone loved it but a bunch also asked if there was any tuna added in.. hah
