Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo Chicken dip. Nough said.

There are two easy ways of doing this. Crock pot versus stove.

Ingredients:

3 chicken breasts
1 package (8oz) cream cheese
1/2 cup Franks Red Hot Sauce
1/3 cup blue cheese or Ranch dressing(Wishbone and Kens are definitely gluten free)
1/2 bag of cheddar cheese
3 tbs butter (optional)

(Corn chips or celery for dipping)

Directions for crock pot:

-Put chicken breasts, butter and hot sauce into the crock pot. Set on High.
-Once the chicken starts to soften, pull it apart with two forks, creating pulled chicken.
-Once chicken is softened and beginning to look stringy and pulled, add in cream cheese, cheddar cheese and dressing.
-Mix together until totally blended. You should see the chicken start to blend in and fall apart even more.
-Let it all  heat up thoroughly before you serve – it’s done once it starts to bubble (this will happen quickly).

Directions for stove: (I don’t use butter in this version)

-Boil chicken breasts in water on the stove.
-Once chicken is cooked through (10- 15 minutes depending on thickness), remove from water and set aside to cool.
-Preheat oven to 375.
-Once cool, pull it apart with two forks, creating pulled chicken.
-In a large mixing bowl, add in cream cheese, cheddar cheese and dressing.
-Mix together until totally blended, then pour into glass/ceramic dish.
-Bake dish on 375 for about 15 minutes until dip is heated through
-Switch to broil for 1 -2 minutes to make the top crispy. Watch it while the broiler is on! It can burn quickly.

When it’s all melted down serve it straight from your crock pot/baked dish with corn chips

  2. How long would it typically take in the crock pot and I have 5 chicken breast… Big family what would you recommend me upping the measurements to?

    • I would say just below double the whole recipe if you are using 5 chicken breasts. If they’re frozen they will probably take 3 hours.. But if they are defrosted then they’ll only take about an hour to cook through and another 30-60 minutes to start to fall apart and shred. The great thing with the crock pot is that you can’t really overcook it, just set it and go do your errands!
