Buffalo Chicken Dip

This dip is another perfect addition to your football game day lineup.  I don’t even like blue cheese and I can’t resist this dip…

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 – 8 oz. package of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup ranch or blue cheese dressing (I use ranch… you now know why)
  • 1/2 cup Frank’s Redhot Buffalo Wing Sauce
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • Chopped rotisserie chicken breast (I typically buy a whole rotisserie chicken and use all of the white meat; you could also use leftovers)
  • Round loaf of bread (i.e. boule) for serving
**I typically double this recipe when I make it**

HOW TO MAKE IT

  • Soften the cream cheese on low power in the microwave until it is very easy to work with but not melted
  • Place the softened cream cheese into a mixing bowl with the dressing and Frank’s Redhot and mix with a mixer on LOW speed  (hand held or standing)
    • I’ve mixed this on high and made an absolute DISASTER in the kitchen — now I mix this with the bowl in the sink
  • Fold in the crumbled blue cheese and chopped chicken breast
    • The amount of chicken in this dip is totally up to you – put as much or as little as you desire
  • Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes
    • I usually serve this dip in a cut out bread bowl
      • To do this, buy a crusty boule and cut large circle out of the top and dig out the middle
      • Then pour the dip into your bread bowl and serve with another cut up boule and chopped celery
