The Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip recipe transports all the famous flavors of Buffalo Wings into a dip... but none of the messiness.
It's a layered dip made with blue, mozzarella and cream cheeses, and buffalo wing sauce, served warm with scoops and/or crisp vegetables. Use store-bought buffalo sauce or easily make your own with the recipe below.
If you like the wings, you'll like the dip. Everyone does.
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts (3 cups shredded, cooked chicken)
2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1 to 1 1/2 cups Buffalo wing sauce, to taste (below, or use Texas Pete's, the original hands-down favorite)
1 cup blue cheese dressing (bleu, if you prefer)
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Poach the chicken breasts in lightly salted water, turning once, until just cooked through, about 15 minutes. Remove them from the water and set aside to cool.
Meantime, whip the cream cheese and spread it over the bottom of a 9" X 13" baking dish or comparable bowl(s).
Shred the cooled chicken by hand or in the processor. In a mixing bowl, stir the chicken and buffalo wing sauce together. Spread the mixture atop the cream cheese.
Now pour the blue cheese dressing over the chicken mixture and top with a sprinkling of mozzarella cheese.
Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 20 minutes or until heated through.
Ta da...! Buffalo Chicken Dip, ready to serve with celery
sticks and scoops of all kinds. In the unlikely event the dip lasts
long enough to cool, you can warm it in the microwave.
Makes 10 to 12 servings.
How hot your Buffalo sauce turns out depends on the hot sauce you use and the amount of cayenne.
3/4 cup butter (1 1/2 sticks)
3/4 cup of your favorite hot sauce (not salsa)
2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
1/4 to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Warm all the sauce ingredients but the salt in a small saucepan. Simmer for few minutes. Taste and add salt if necessary. Makes 1 1/2 cups of wing sauce, enough to coat 5 pounds of wings or more.
