Ingredients

  •  boneless skinless chicken breasts (16 ounces*)
  • 4 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese (softened (Philadelphia))
  • 1 cup fat-free sour cream or Greek yogurt (I prefer sour cream)
  • 1/2 cup Franks red hot sauce (or whatever hot sauce you like)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • scallions (optional for garnish)
  • cut up celery sticks and carrot sticks (for dipping)

Instructions

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe:

  • To make the shredded chicken, place chicken in the slow cooker and add enough water or chicken broth to cover. Cook high 4 hours. Remove and shred with two forks, discard the liquid.
  • Meanwhile, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, vinegar and hot sauce together until smooth. Add half of the blue cheese.
  • Transfer to the slow cooker with the chicken, mixing well and return to the slow cooker, cook low 2 to 3 hours.
  • Transfer to a serving dish and top with the remaining blue cheese, garnish with scallions. Serve hot.

Faster Oven Method with a Rotisserie Chicken:

  • Buy a rotisserie chicken and remove the breast meat from the bones, removing the skin and shred. Save the rest of the chicken for another recipe.
  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Place chicken in a large bowl, then mix the cream cheese, sour cream, vinegar and hot sauce together until smooth. Add half of the blue cheese and place them in a baking dish. Bake 350F until hot, about 20 to 25 minutes.

Notes

Variations: If you don’t like blue cheese, you can swap it for cheddar or mozzarella cheese.

You can cook the chicken breast in the Instant Pot covered in 1 1/2 cups water or broth 15 min high pressure. Once you shred and drain set the instant pot to the slow cooker mode, combine the ingredients and proceed with above directions.
