Quick Single Serve Buffalo Chicken Salad

16 Apr

In our house, buffalo chicken dip is a frequent guest. With chips, in a fried wonton or on nachos, buff dip can do no wrong. I actually always try to keep the ingredients stocked in the fridge because they are all used in different recipes.

I try to prepare the night before with lunch for work etc. but let’s face it, it doesn’t always work out that way. This morning there were a) no lunch fixins to be found in the fridge and b) I wasn’t in the mood to make a PB sandwich. I had the Perdue shortcut chicken strips in the fridge so I thought buffalo chicken salad has to be a thing, right?

Google to the rescue and it is in fact something people eat on sandwiches!

What you need:

1/2 cup of cubed or shredded chicken (rotisserie chicken would also be delicious for this or any buffalo chicken concoction)

Hot sauce, I had Frank’s

Ranch dressing, any variety

Salt and Pepper

1 scallion, greens only chopped

1 TBS nonfat greek yogurt

Combine all ingredients but the chicken. I eye-balled the dressing, probably about 3 TBS. A quick note about hot sauce, you can add as much or as little hot sauce as you like but if you are making it for someone else, make sure you test it! I would hate to make something for someone without tasting it and hearing later that I burned their tongue off.

We usually have Butterbread in the house so I served it on that.

This recipe could be adjusted to make buffalo chicken dip as well by adding shredded cheese and it’s pretty light because there’s no mayo. For a different type of spice variation, you could also add Sriracha.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

26 Jul

I don’t remember the first time I had buffalo chicken dip. I think it may have been 2009, no joke. Apparently, I was missing out until then!  I’ve had it fried in wontons, totally delicious, or served with pita chips, tortilla chips or carrots and celery (if you’re feeling healthy). Below is a quick recipe I made at home. My lovely fella acted as a guinea pig liked it so I hope you do too!

I made a small batch…

2 cooked chicken breasts, diced or shredded depending on your preference of chicken size.  It was suggested I try using rotisserie chicken…I didn’t but it sounds like a good idea. I’ve also tried chicken in a can, stored in water. Drain it and use!

1/2 a block of softened cream cheese. I went the “healthy” route and used Neufchâtel cheese

1/3 cup of bleu cheese dressing or Ranch dressing

Salt and Pepper

1/3 to 1/2 cup of buffalo sauce. I used Frank’s Buffalo sauce because I didn’t feel like making my own (very simple by the way…check out my previous post about how to make it. Butter, lemon and hot sauce, can’t go wrong!)

Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan or microwave it in a microwave-safe dish until soft.

Stir and serve hot with chips of your choice (pita, bagel, tortilla).

C’est si Yum!
