[lightened up] Buffalo Chicken Dip

I am a #StonyfieldBlogger and often get perks for being one.  I only share the brand because I am completely in love with their yogurt and all opinions expressed are 100% my own!

It’s Summer and Picnic Season is in full swing!  I don’t know about you, but I always freeze up when I try to think of a dish to take along to a picnic.  If it’s cold, will it have to stay cold?  If it contains mayo, will it spoil too fast?  If it’s warm, how can I keep it warm until time to eat.

So, I started brainstorming and came up with this delicious, so incredibly easy, Buffalo Chicken Dip.  Eat it warm, eat it cool – it doesn’t matter, because believe me you will eat it.

A lady never admits how much Buffalo Chicken Dip she eats – ok, total lie.  I ate about half of this as soon as it came out of the oven and I sent some home with a friend and she later admitted to eating it all before her husband got home to try any.  I promise – it’s good!  And perhaps the best part about is, you don’t have to feel too guilty for consuming half of the entire dip you just made because it’s a lightened up version of Buffalo Chicken Dip!

Replace any notions of putting mayonnaise or sour cream into a dip with a cup of Stonyfield Organic Fat Free Greek Yogurt and cut your calories and fat dramatically!

Mixing Buffalo Chicken Dip

You could easily use canned chicken, but I love buying the fresh, organic chicken at a local grocery store – it’s just so much better.  I shredded the chicken too so the dip was really smooth.

Picnic Buffalo Chicken Dip

Um, and then I ate it.  So, it didn’t really make it to a picnic, unless you count sharing with a friend, but it will definitely be my go-to picnic food from now on.  It was delicious warm with celery and chips and would even make a totally fun wrap too!

Eating Buffalo Chicken Dip

Or you know, straight out of the dish works too!

Hubby wanted an even lighter meal for the day, so I used the rest of the cooked chicken breast and made him some delicious Chicken Salad with flavored Stonyfield Greek Yogurt – it’s one of his favorite sandwiches!  But me?  Oh, you know I’m all about the Buffalo Chicken Dip!
