Lighter Buffalo Chicken Dip

Pin It
Oh my goodness. Have you heard of Buffalo Chicken Dip? I've seen it featured on a lot of other blogs and websites, so it's probably something that's already crossed your path. But if not, you need to try it. And if you haven't tried the lighter version, well, you should do that as well.

It's creamy and delicious and tastes pretty much exactly like buffalo wings. So if wings are one of your favorite snacks, you'll be sure to love this. It has yet to disappoint and is requested over and over whenever I bring it as an appetizer. Most times I even use all fat-free or reduced-fat ingredients, but no one can even tell the difference! 

You can serve it with celery, crackers or my favorite: Fritos! It's sure to be a hit no matter who you serve it to. You know I love you and wouldn't steer you wrong, so you should go ahead and make it. Okay? Perfect. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe

  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 (8 oz.) package low-fat cream cheese
  • 1 package (2 cups) reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, fancy shredded
  • 1 cup light Ranch salad dressing
  • 1 cup Frank's Red Hot sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Bring a pot of water of water to a boil in a medium sized saucepan. Add chicken and let cook for 30-40 minutes or until cooked through.  Allow to cool slightly. Using two forks, shred chicken into small pieces.

Meanwhile, spray a 11x8 baking dish generously with cooking spray.  Cut the cream cheese into small cubes and place them in the bottom of the baking dish.

Sprinkle the Cheddar cheese evenly over top of the cream cheese. Pour the hot sauce and ranch dressing directly over the cheese.

Bake for 7-10 minutes.  Stir until well combined and place back in the oven for an additional 7-10 minutes.

After the cheese mixture is done baking, add the chicken and stir to combine. Cover with aluminum foil and bake an additional 20-30 minutes or until bubbly. Serve immediately with celery, crackers or chips.
