Easy Appetizer Recipe - Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo Chicken Dip
I have always wanted to make buffalo chicken dip.  I have heard numerous people say they love it.  So when we were looking for appetizers for our after Christmas family dinner - I decided to make this.  It was a HUGE hit with our guests...it was spicy...but tasty.  PLUS my husband didn't recognize the blue cheese. Here is the recipe I used -

Ingredients -
  • 2 chicken breast halves - cooked and shredded - I used a can of cooked chicken
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup of buffalo wing sauce
  • 3/4 cup of blue cheese or ranch dressing - I used blue cheese...and am hoping my blue cheese hating husband doesn't notice
  • 1 bag shredded cheese - I used Cheddar
Directions -

Place the chicken, cream cheese, sauce, dressing, and 1/2 a bag of cheese in a microwaveable safe bowl.  Heat on high in 1 minute increments until heated through, smooth and creamy.  Cover the top with the remainder of the cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  The original recipe said to just microwave it and then transfer to a crock pot.  I liked baked dips so I decided to put mine in the oven.

Serve with small pieces of celery, tortilla chips, corn chips, or sliced baguette.
