Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip

So one of the hazards of eating healthy is that buffalo wings aren't on the menu... which is sad, since they are so tasty. I'll still partake in a wing every now and again but John is a bit most strict with his diet so they are a definite NO. Thus leads me to trying to cook up a healthy buffalo wing for him. This dip is pretty darn close to the real deal (minus the skin and bones). It's like someone took a plate of wings, de-boned them then covered them in blue cheese and more tastiness. Now I know some are thinking "wow that doesn't' sound appetizing..." but it really is! Looks aren't everything people... and man is this stuff good. We dipped some bread in it sandwich style, along with raw broccoli (gotta get those veggies in somehow), delicious! John loved it but commented, "You gave me broccoli to dip because you know it's the only way I'd eat it". :D who me!? never :)

it may not look so great but MAN is it tasty!

Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip
1.5 lbs chicken breast (skinless and fat trimmed)
4 oz fat free cream cheese
1/8 - 1/4 cup franks red hot sauce (depends on how spicy you want it)
1/4 cup light or low fat blue cheese dressing
1/4 - 1/2 cup fat free shredded mozzarella or chunky blue cheese (or a mix of the two!)

I just grilled the chicken on the george forman grill for 5 minutes, they weren't all the way done yet but they finish cooking in the oven. You can grill them on an outdoor grill or in a pan, or bake them in the oven if you like, just leave them a little undercooked so they don't dry out once the dip goes in the oven.

Meanwhile, in a 8 or 9 inch cake pan or glass pyrex bowl (oven safe) beat together cream cheese, red hot, and blue cheese dressing.

Remove chicken from grill and cut into small chunks, add to cream cheese mixture along with shredded cheese, stir until incorporated.

Place in a 350 degree F oven for 15 minutes. The mixture should be bubbling and browning a little. Let cool for 5 minutes, stir up to mix it all up before serving. Serve with chips, cut veggies, or whatever else sounds good to you!
