My hubby is from Buffalo, New York and I think we all know what they are famous for… Chicken Wings. In our home we only make chicken wings for special occasions and fortunately my husband has yet to find a good replacement locally. (probably a good thing for us all). When my good friend introduced my husband to this Buffalo Chicken Dip recipe, he was in heaven. He requests this dip recipes for any football or male centered event, thus the reason it was nick named “MAN DIP”
While at Walmart this week I they have the video boards advertising this recipe but they suggest using canned chicken and ranch salad dressing. I have one recipe I use canned chicken for and that is my Chicken Enchilada Quiche Recipe.
While canned chicken is great in a pinch, if you have time, roast a few extra chicken breasts or grab a rotisserie chicken (Day old ones are often cheaper and it does not have to be warm for this recipe)
This is such an easy recipe and I have made it a few times I am shocked I have not blogged about it yet.
My friend Kirsten Nease’s Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe could not be simpler. Just dump everything in a bowl, mix and add it to a greased casserole dish. I also make this dip the day before, cover and bake it before the party.
- 1 jar of Buffalo Wing sauce, be sure and check the heat level and buy what your friends can handle.
- 4-6 chicken breasts, shredded
- 1 brick of cream cheese
- 1 small Bottle of blue cheese
- 2 c. shredded mozzarella
- Frito’s Scoops (for serving)
- Carrots and celery sticks (a staple with wings)
- Combine first 5 ingredients and bake in a greased serving dish at 350 until bubbly. (25min)
- Serve w/ Frito’s or Scoops.
For the Superbowl, I added a little accent to the oval serving dish. I just could not resist adding blue cheese dressing laces to my “football Dip”.
