Buffalo Chicken Dip

Have you noticed that there has been a bit of a buffalo sauce flavor to my winter? I recall having a pork-themed winter last year, which was far healthier. Buffalo sauce is just so darn good. I figure, as long as Dan continues to perfect his buffalo sauce, I may as well continue to add it to recipes. I mustn't be wasteful!

A few weeks ago Dan had a night away from home with some good friends. From what I understand, the night involved basketball-watching, bowling, beer and this very buffalo dip! He said it was a hit amongst his pals. It is sooo naughty, yet sooo delicious.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a round baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine:

Meat from 1 Rotisserie chicken, shredded

8-oz. package cream cheese

1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

1 1/2 cups buffalo wing sauce (substitution: Frank's Red Hot Sauce)

Mix well.

Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and top with 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese.

Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until heated through. 

Serve warm with chips, celery or carrots.

If you're feeling really crazy, do a double-dipping into some blue cheese dressing! Extra naughtiness!
