Someone in an GF online group asked for a appetizer recipe and I can’t believe I’ve never posted this since I’ve made it probably 10 times. It’s not a GF recipe, but by purchasing the appropriate brands of ingredients, it’s easily converted to GF.
Buffalo Chicken Dip
1 8 oz brick of cream cheese – I used the 1/3 less fat version
1/2 cup blue cheese dressing – I used reduced fat Kraft
1/3 to 1/2 cup Franks Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce, or to taste
1 1/2 cups preferred shredded cheese, divided (cheddar, monterey jack, whatever)
2 cups cooked, cubed (or shredded) chicken breast (can even used canned if in a pinch)
Bleu cheese, if desired (check for gluten- some brands ARE gf)
I almost always make this in a small crockpot and to be honest, I don’t really measure anything. I just dump everything in together (except some reserved cheese) and turn on the crock. After things start to get melty, I stir it up to mix everything. Grab a chip or a clean spoon and taste it – you may want to add more buffalo sauce or dressing. Once it’s all melted and mix and you’re ready to serve, top it off with the extra cheese. If you’re adding bleu cheese, you can either stir it in when mixing, or add it to the top before serving.
Serve with tortilla chips and celery and/or carrots. Even people who don’t think they really like bleu cheese like this.
