Buffalo Chicken Cheese Dip

Posted on

My fabulous co-worker brought in a this recipe from All Recipes the week before Superbowl, so I had to give it a try!  I made a few adaptions in my version below to help reduce some of the fat and sodium.  The original recipe calls for canned chicken, but I simply boiled 2 chicken breasts for about 25-30 minutes until cooked through and shredded them.  I also used half reduced fat cream cheese and found that you could not tell the difference in taste.  To make a more mild version try Frank’s Red Hot® Buffalo sauce.  This dip really is great and does taste like buffalo wings!

We found this bad boy at Kohl’s on sale for only $29 after tax.  I could not wait to give it a test run.
