Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip

Hi Everyone,

I am just baking away today!!!  With all of these sweets breads and other goodies, I was in some serious need of some savory food that was healthy, guilt-free and tasty!!  I showed you a few weeks ago my Artichoke and Jalapeno Ranch Dip that I loved so much that I made it three times since I posted it.  Well I took that dip idea and changed it around and came up with one of my new favorite all time dips!!

Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip

This is my Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip!  Being from Buffalo, I love my chicken wings, but I will not eat them because of the calories!  Did you know that one chicken wing is about 100 calories and about 5 – 8 grams of fat?  No thank you!  You know once you have one wing, you can’t stop there.  Next thing you know you have eaten like 10 of them!!  So instead of wings, bring me dip!  Just as tasty, if not more and is only 110 calories for over 1/4 cup serving with less then 1.5 grams of fat!!  This dip is fantastic!!!

Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip

It’s made with fat-free cream cheese, plain greek yogurt, fat-free mayo, cooked chicken, Franks Hot Sauce, which is only the best hot sauce ever and reduced fat cheddar cheese!!!  This dip is creamy, spicy and oh so perfect!!  It’s not only good for dipping celery, carrots and chips in, but it is also amazing on a chicken wrap!  Yes please!  That is what I am going to do with it for lunch tomorrow!!

Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip

This dip is perfect for snacking throughout the week, serving at the holidays or I bet it would be a huge hit at a Super Bowl party!  It’s so easy to make too!  Just use already cooked chicken, which a rotisserie chicken would work great, mix it all together and bake for 30 minutes.   Cook it until the cheese is all bubbly!!  Wait for it to cool and serve!!!  Oh baby, this is what it looked like cooled a bit.

Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip

As I stated in my calorie section of my recipe above, I made this recipe to serve 6 people.  I honestly think it could easily serve 8.  I also think the calories are lower than what I specified, due to serving size.  The calories for the whole dish if you were to eat the whole recipe would be 663.6, which isn’t to shabby!!  Hey that is like 6 chicken wings!  lol

Have a great day everyone!  I have some homemade bread in the oven that needs to come out!  Have  a great day!

Toodles,

Jennifer
