Super Yummy Recipe

Sorry I haven't posted lately. Been kinda busy... which isn't a bad thing in my book! I have lots of things I want to post about but for now I am going to share this delicious Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe. I am sure most everyone has made or at least tried Buffalo Chicken Dip. It's not like this is some new thing. But this recipe is brought to you by Hungry Girl . She is pretty popular now but if you haven't heard of her check out that link! She basically takes super fatty foods and recipes and finds ways to make delicious lower fat alternatives.

Her take on Buffalo Chicken Dip is called Buff Chick Hot Wing Dip (great name, right?!)

PER SERVING (1/15th of recipe, about 1/4 cup): 68 calories, 1.5g fat, 616mg sodium, 2g carbs, 0g fiber, 1g sugars, 10g protein -- POINTS® value 1

Two 9.75-oz. (or 10-oz.) cans 98% fat-free chunk white chicken breast in water, drained
One 8-oz. tub fat-free cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Frank's RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce
1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup fat-free ranch dressing
1/4 cup fat-free Greek yogurt (Fage 0% is the best!)

Directions:Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place cream cheese in a medium bowl and stir until smooth. Mix in Frank's RedHot, mozzarella cheese, ranch dressing, and yogurt. Stir in chicken until thoroughly combined. Spoon mixture evenly into a deep 8-inch by 8-inch baking dish. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or until mixture is heated through. Stir well and enjoy!

HG Alternative! To make this dish FAST, skip the oven altogether. Prepare dip according to the directions, but in a microwave-safe dish. Then microwave uncovered on high for 5 minutes (stopping and stirring halfway through cooking), or until hot.

I made this for the first time on Tuesday and boy was it a hit! I doubled the recipe (which ended up being waayyy too much). I took some of it to a get together with some friends Tuesday night and then the rest of it to work Weds. and everyone at both places just thought it was the BOMB :) It is definitely worth trying. Tasted just as good, to me, as the original fattier version!

Just wanted to share!
