Description

This buffalo chicken dip is going to be a huge hit at your next gathering. Lightened up with Greek yogurt but still packed with flavor. Gluten-free and keto-friendly.


Ingredients

  • 3 cups shredded chicken breast (about 16oz pre-cooked)
  • 1oz ranch seasoning packet (I like Simply Organic)
  • 4oz cream cheese (full fat or reduced both work)
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (I like 2%)
  • 1/2 cup buffalo hot sauce
  • 1 cup part-skim shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup blue cheese*

Instructions

SLOW COOKER METHOD

Place the cream cheese in the bottom of the slow cooker, top with shredded chicken, ranch seasoning, blue cheese and mozzarella, then add Greek yogurt, buffalo sauce. Spread the yogurt and sauce together over the chicken and cook on low for 2 hours. Stir the mixture together at the 1 hour mark and continue cooking on low for another hour or so. Serve warm with chips and veggies.

OVEN METHOD

Preheat oven to 350ºF and grease 8×8 baking dish. In large bowl mix together cream cheese, Greek yogurt, ranch seasoning and blue cheese plus mozzarella (if using) with sturdy spatula or electric mixer. Stir in buffalo sauce and shredded chicken until combined. Transfer to greased baking dish and bake for about 25 minutes. Option to top with more mozzarella cheese with the last 5 minutes of baking time. Serve warm with chips and veggies.

Notes
