Buffalo Chicken Dip: Super Bowl Recipes


The Super Bowl is this weekend and when I think of the Super Bowl I think eating!  Oh yes, the husband and I were already discussing what was on the menu for Sunday.  However, all of this eating is most likely going to put a snag into my weight loss goals.  But I plan on combating the battle of the bulge while eating like a queen!  To do this, I need to trick these fat cells of mine.  I need to make the foods I love but make them lower calorie!  And that is why I am introducing you to this Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip!

Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip

Ingredients
2 chicken breasts (poached and shredded)
1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt
4 Tbs Franks Red Hot Sauce
4 wedges Laughing Cow light Blue Cheese
1/2 packet Hidden Valley Spicy Ranch mix
1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese

Directions
1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2.  Cook chicken breasts and shred in chopper.  I used my Ninja (blender) but you have to be careful not to make a chicken paste.  Only needs a few pulses to shred the chicken.

3.  In Ninja blender, I combined yogurt, ranch mix, Laughing Cow cheese and hot sauce and thoroughly blended.

4.  In a bowl mix chicken and the rest of the mixture together, add in Mozzarella cheese and mix well.

5.  Add mixture to a baking dish, cover and bake for 30 minutes.

6.  Serve hot.  Makes 12 servings with each serving equaling ~85 calories.

  4. Now that looks like an amazing dip! I would totally eat that, and I'm really picky. I generally don't eat blue cheese, but I would make an exception for this!

  10. So funny...I am a vegetarian but have been craving hot wing sauce for long enough that I just added it to my grocery list tonight. I have not heard of "franks" brand but will look for it in my Illinois grocery stores tomorrow. I will make this for my family for superbowl and a vegetarian version for me. Thanks so much!! Great timing.
