Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip
4 oz. (half a block) reduced-fat (or fat-free) cream cheese, softened
1 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 cup shredded part-skim Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup hot sauce of your choice
1/2 cup crumbled light blue cheese
1 Tbsp. ranch seasoning
3 cups shredded cooked chicken
Vegetable sticks or chips for dipping
To Make In the Oven
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, stir all ingredients together until well-mixed. Transfer mixture to a small greased baking dish, and bake for 30 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the edges begin to slightly brown. Remove and serve immediately.
To Make On the Stove
Stir all ingredients together in a medium saucepan until combined over medium-low heat. Continue heating for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the cheese is melted and the dip is simmering. Remove and serve immediately.
To Make In the Slow Cooker
Stir all ingredients together in a slow cooker until combined. Heat on low for 4 hours or until the cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
