Buffalo Chicken Dip

Disclaimer: this may in fact be the most unhealthy snack ever. But soo delicious, especially for a lazy Sunday while watching football.

I had never had this dip before, but after seeing a recipe last month online, I decided it would be perfect for the first Pats game of the season.


Yes, those are pools of grease.


As it turned out, I didn't actually contribute to the production of this delicious dip/heart attack; my boyfriend made it, based on a recipe like the one below from www.buffalochickendip.com (the Mecca for chicken dip recipes, apparently).

Instead of canned chicken, which we were both morally opposed to, he panfried three large chicken breasts rubbed with Jamaican jerk seasoning and then cut them into small pieces. And, inexplicably, his recipe included straight butter.


Served with Ritz crackers, pita chips, celery, and Boston Lager.


Ingredients:
1 pkg. (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese or shredded mozzarella cheese (about 2 ounces)
1/2 cup blue cheese salad dressing or ranch salad dressing
2 cans (12.5 ounces each) Swanson® Premium Chunk Chicken Breast in Water, drained
1/2 cup any flavor FRANK'S® RedHot® sauce
Assorted fresh vegetables or crackers

Directions:
Heat the oven to 350° F.
Stir the cream cheese in a 9-inch deep dish pie plate with a fork or whisk until it's smooth.
Stir in the dressing, pepper sauce and blue cheese. Stir in the chicken.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the chicken mixture is hot and bubbling.
Stir before serving.
Serve with the vegetables and crackers for dipping.

  2. Do you eat it with your...hands? Or just dunk your whole face into it, like you're bobbing for apples? (By apples I mean clogged arteries.)

  3. We ate it with the appropriate accoutrements. Ritz crackers were the best I think.

    Nate says it's even better the next day after it's had time to stew.

  4. Yes. I did say that.

    Also, I added a negligible amount of butter. And perhaps I could have removed some of the grease had Hannah not snatched the dish away from me because she couldn't wait another 5 minutes to eat it.
