Healthy Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe by The Clean Eating Couple

Seriously who thought of this? Like let’s take two of the best things ever, cheese, and franks red hot, mix them with chicken, and bake them until it’s all melty and delicious? Buffalo chicken dip often gets a bad rep, but this healthy buffalo chicken dip is about to change that. It still tastes absolutely amazing and is just a little bit lighter than regular buffalo chicken dip.

What makes this buffalo chicken dip healthy?

Buffalo chicken dip is usually made with tons of cheese, ranch or blue cheese dressing, and cream cheese which makes it super high in fat. Cream cheese/dressing is swapped out for greek yogurt and cottage cheese. Yes.. you read that right, there is NO cream cheese in this recipe! The greek yogurt/cottage cheese mix still makes this rich and creamy, with way less fat and a whole lot more protein!

You can also add a little bit less cheese to it, but if you want to go ahead and add more in – we’re not going to tell you no. Live your best life, ADD THAT CHEESE.

Making healthy buffalo chicken dip is ridiculously easy. You only need 6 ingredients. Cottage cheese (no you can’t even taste it, swear) Greek yogurt, blue cheese (OPTIONAL: sub with whatever cheese you like), cheddar cheese, hot sauce, and cooked chicken.
