Reduced Fat Buffalo Chicken Dip

Who says dips have to be loaded with fat? Make the ever popular Buffalo Chicken Dip a little healthier and still enjoy the flavor.

Reduced Fat Buffalo Chicken Dip

My husband never tried Buffalo Chicken Dip until a few months ago when he tried it at a friends house and loved it. I’ve eaten it before, but have never made it myself. I wanted to try to make another appetizer idea to share with you for Superbowl and this recipe is real easy; however, I wanted to lighten it up a bit because who can really stop at 2 tablespoons of this goodness?!

Reduced Fat Buffalo Chicken Dip

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!

    Look great, I’ve copied the recipe for future use. I hope you don’t mind, but I’ve removed the words ” Free, Reduced, & Light” from my version… bon appetit!
