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.
- 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
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.
