I had a holiday party a few weekends ago at my apartment and I wanted to make something that I haven’t made before. I have heard about Buffalo Chicken dip before so I decided I was going to make it for the party. I love anything Buffalo flavored; chips, almonds, wings, etc. After searching the web for recipes I decided to take a piece of each recipe and create my own.
A lot of the recipes I saw online called for canned chicken. I have never heard of canned chicken and the thought of it makes me sick. I used fresh chicken breasts and just boiled them and once they were cool I shredded them with my hands. Another common ingredient I saw was ranch dressing; another thing I am not a fan off along with mayo. I always enjoy blue cheese with Buffalo wings so I decided to add that to the dip instead. I had some scallions left over from another dip I made for the party so I added that to the dip to.
I mixed all the ingredients together and then cooked it in the oven for about 30 minutes. Right before the party started I transferred the mixture to the mini-Crock Pot I have which kept it warm all night. If you don’t have a small Crock Pot, leave the dip in the baking dish.
Pre-heat the oven to 350°
