How to Prepare Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe
Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 20 min
Servings: 12 servings
- 16 ounces Trifecta shredded chicken
- 1 cup cottage cheese
- 1/2 cup Frank's RedHot wing sauce
- 1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon ranch seasoning mix homemade or store-bought
- 1/4 cup cheddar cheese
- Medium Bowl
- Oven-Safe Baking Dish
Step 1: Preheat Oven and Blend Dip
Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Coat baking dish (1-quart) with cooking spray and set aside. You can use this same dish for serving the dip!
In a small bowl combine ranch seasoning and Greek yogurt. Mix until well blended. Then add the pre-cooked shredded chicken, cottage cheese, and hot sauce. Stir well to evenly coat the chicken.
Step 2: Bake
Add chicken mixture to a baking dish and spread out evenly.
Then sprinkle your cheddar cheese on top and place in the oven for 8 minutes, or until warmed through. Since everything is pre-cooked, you'll just want to heat it until it is hot and the flavors have melded.
Then serve with carrot sticks, whole-grain crackers, or chips. The sky is the limit.
Reheating, Storing, Serving
This dip still tastes amazing at room temp or slightly warm. Just pop it in the microwave for a few minutes or in the oven on low heat (300 degrees Fahrenheit) and re-warm the mixture for serving.
