Recipe Gurl's Winning SKINNY Buffalo Chicken Dip



Yes folks, there is a way to think fat and eat healthy. Buffalo chicken dip is probably one of the fattest things you can eat, I don't even want to know the amount of calories in it. So here is my skinny version of the dip, you really can't taste any difference, except for the fact that your mouth doesn't have that greasy thick coating on it when you're done eating. We had a healthy recipe contest at my work where the winning recipes got put into a company wide cookbook. The recipes that were submitted had to be cooked and tested and this dip won, so I'm going to go ahead and assume it's a great substitute for the fatty, mayonaisey version.

Ingredients:

1 rotisserie chicken
2-3 cups non-fat greek yogut (if you want a thicker dip use 2-2 1/2 cups, for a thinner drip use 3)
1 hidden valley ranch packet (get the low sodium kind)
Frank's red hot sauce
1/4 cup of 2% natural shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat your oven broiler. Get as much meat as you can from the rotisserie chicken and shred it, place in a large bowl. Next, shake on as much red hot sauce on the chicken as you like to taste and miz together. In another bowl, mix the yogurt with the ranch packet, once this is well mixed together, pour into the bowl with the chicken mixture and combine the two mixtures. Oce it is all mixed together, place the dip into a baking dish. Sprinkle the shredded cheddar on top of the dip. Place the dip in the oven and broil until the cheese is melted and the dip is warmed through. Serve with celery sticks and/or tortilla chips.


Other uses for this dip that make great appetizers:
-Put in between two tortillas and grill in a pan for quesadillas. Serve alongside reduced fat blue cheese or ranch dressing
-Fold into reduced fat Pillsbury crescent rolls and bake for a bite sized appetizer.
