Buffalo Chicken Dip – Keto and Low Carb

Buffalo Chicken Dip - Keto and Low Carb

Buffalo Chicken Dip is a great appetizer to serve at your next party!  I use ingredients that you most likely will already have on hand and is really easy to assemble.  It has all the familiar flavors of buffalo chicken wings and blue cheese, with a some added tanginess and cheesy goodness!  You can even make it ahead and bake it off when you are ready.  Give this one a try, you will be making it often!!

Ingredients

For the Buffalo Chicken Dip

2 cups of chicken breasts

8 ounces of cream cheese, softened

1 1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

1/3 cup blue cheese dressing, low carb (I use Marzetti’s Simply Dressed)

1/2 cup buffalo wing sauce (recipe below)

1/4 cup sour cream

1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

1 teaspoon dried parsley

1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles (for the top)

 

For the Buffalo Sauce

1/2 cup hot sauce, I use Frank’s Red Hot Sauce

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Pinch of salt

 

Preparation

 

To Make the Buffalo Sauce

Add the butter to a sauce pan and melt over medium heat.

Once melted, add the remaining sauce ingredients and simmer for 1 minute.

Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.

 

To Make the Buffalo Chicken Dip

Preheat oven to 375F.

Add the chicken breast to a large bowl and shred using a hand mixer.  If you don’t have a hand mixer, you can use 2 forks.  Set aside.

In a separate bowl, add the cream cheese, blue cheese dressing, buffalo sauce, sour cream, parsley and garlic salt, and mix until well combined.   Set mixture aside.

In the bowl with the chicken, add in the shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese, but reserve 1/2 cup of the cheddar cheese for the topping.  Mix by hand until combined.  Then mix in the cream cheese mixture.

Pour the mixture into a baking casserole dish, sprayed with non-stick spray.  Sprinkle the reserved 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese over the top of the dip, then add the blue cheese crumbles.

Bake for 20 minutes at 375F, or until the cheese is slightly golden brown.  Bake an additional 5 minutes at 400F.  Allow to cool slightly and top with scallions, before serving with celery sticks or homemade cheese crackers.
