Buffalo Chicken Dip. It sounds kind of gross, right? Turns out it is one of the greatest things I have ever mastered. There are a number of variations on the recipe available online, but I took inspiration from a few to create this bubbling, melty dish of deliciousness. The trick is layering the dip, rather than mixing it all together (which results in a rather unattractive goop) so that the top layer is a lustrous toasted cheese that seals it all together. With a creamy base, perfectly seasoned chicken, and a striking blend of cheeses, this appetizer delivers on all fronts as a crowd pleaser. Kick back, relax, and enter cheese lover’s paradise.

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces light cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup light blue cheese or ranch dressing
  • ½ cup hot sauce
  • ½ cup buffalo wing sauce
  • ¾ cup crumbled blue cheese
  • ½ cup shredded sharp cheddar
  • 2 cups shredded chicken (I used rotisserie)
  • Salt and pepper

Preparation:

Heat oven to 350 F. Spread cream cheese into base of deep baking dish.

Season shredded chicken and mix with hot sauce and wing sauce, let sit for 20-30 minutes.

Mix dressing, hot sauce and blue cheese together with chicken and spread over cream cheese. Layer top with shredded cheddar.

Bake 20 minutes or until mixture is heated through; stir. Garnish as desired. Serve with crackers or crudités.
