Real Food Recipe: Buffalo Chicken Dip

Healthier Buffalo Chicken Dip

Are you looking for a healthier Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe?

I have finally created one that my entire family loves!  It is very quick and easy to make, it’s a great way to use up some leftover chicken, and it is full of flavor!  I have been making it a lot lately.  The recipes I had initially used (from the hot sauce bottle) called for Ranch or Bleu Cheese dressings.  I didn’t love all the processed ingredients in the dressings from the store (unhealthy oils, added sugars, and unpronounceable ingredients), so I set out to find a healthier replacement.  This is what I came up with, and my family and I are both happy with the result.  I usually serve it with celery sticks or organic corn chips.  Enjoy! 🙂

Ingredients

  • 8 oz. Package cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ½ teaspoon dried parsley
  • ½ teaspoon dried dill
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ cup Frank’s Original REDHOT sauce (make sure you get ORIGINAL – the others have added ingredients)
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded (buy the block and shred it yourself to avoid unnecessary added ingredients)
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, chopped or shredded

Serve with celery sticks or organic corn chips.

Instructions

  1. Place cream cheese into baking dish or glass pie plate.
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients until mixed well.
  3. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes until hot.  Stir.
