Buffalo Chicken Dip

Way back in February for the Superbowl, I decided to find a few appetizers to make for the party we went to. I decided on the meatball buns (which I blogged about here) and then this buffalo chicken dip since I had heard so many people rave about it. I searched Pinterest for a recipe and found this gluten free version.

(original blog post with recipe found here)

4 cups shredded cooked chicken
16 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Franks Hot Sauce
1/2 cup Ranch dressing
1/2 cup Bleu Cheese dressing
3/4 cup crumbled bleu cheese or shredded mozzarella
1/ cup shredded Parmesan for topping

Sit out cream cheese to soften
Roast 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts for 30 min at 350 degrees
While the chicken cools, mix together the cream cheese, dressing, Franks and bleu cheese (or mozzarella)
Chop or shred chicken, add to dressing mixture
spoon the dip in to a medium sized casserole dish and top with shredded parmesan
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 min

Special Notes from Me: 
I boiled the chicken and shredded it in the Kitchenaid mixer (seriously, best idea ever)
I substituted another 1/2 cup of ranch instead of bleu cheese dressing
I used the mozzarella instead of the crumbled bleu cheese
We served with fritos

This wasn't my favorite Pinterest recipe that I have tried, but I'm also not a huge fan of buffalo chicken. And I might have filled up on the meatball buns ;) John loved it though and I think everyone at the party enjoyed it!

I'm not a huge buffalo sauce fan either, but my husband loves it so this has his name on it!

My sister-in-law makes something very similar to this but we only get it once a year when we see her. Now we can have it more :-)

Thanks for sharing this! I am obsessed to the buffalo chicken dip this place sales near my house, but I'm sure it would be so much easier to make it myself!

I am so hungry right now and would devour that entire bowl! I'd never tried it until my coworker made some for the Super Bowl and brought a ton of leftover on Monday. Best thing ever!
