By using fat free and light substitutions in this Reduced Fat Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe, I shaved off 59 calories and 7.4 grams of fat per serving from this recipe. So go ahead and indulge a little! The hot sauce gives it so much flavor you’ll never miss the calories.
For the chicken, I used leftover chicken I had from a roast, but you can bring two chicken tenderloins to a boil and allow to cook completely to add to this dish also. Some people use the canned chicken; however, I’ve never purchased chicken in a can so I don’t know if that would make a difference or not. Besides, fresh is always best. ~Enjoy!
