The recipe I’ve been obsessed with for the last few months…. Buffalo Chicken Dip or more like a dinner for me. This recipe is out of this would delicious and you’d never know it’s a healthy version.
Because this recipe uses 3 chicken breasts, I’ve totally enjoyed it for dinner with a combination of tortilla chips (my carb portion) and celery (veggie portion) – there is already protein and fat in there so it definitely serves as a full meal if you’re following my Eat Your Way Lean Meal Plan guidelines.
Also, just a note… regarding the amount of hot sauce. You can always add more at the end, so I suggest starting with more of that 1/4 cup unless you know you love a kick of spice.
I’m trying out this new feature on my website where I can add the recipes in with this cool look (as shown below). You can even click the print button to download and print a version as well.
I would love to hear your feedback… what do you think of it?
Use a large pan with a lid and heat olive oil over medium heat; add onion and cook for ~5 minutes or until translucent
Slice chicken breasts into thin strips and add to the pan
Add the minced garlic, hot sauce (depending on the level of spice you like), and water to the pan as well
Bring to a simmer then reduce heat to low and cover; cook for 45 mins to 1 hr. You will know when it's done when the chicken starts to fall apart/easily shred and almost all of the liquid has been absorbed
5. Add the Greek yogurt into the pan and stir. If you have a greek yogurt dip available, add this too.
Stir everything until it is well combined and taste test; add more hot sauce if you'd like it spicier
Serve and enjoy with celery or tortilla chips
TIP: around 40 minutes - start to break apart/gently shred the chicken. This will help the chicken absorb the liquid. Continue allowing to reduce until there is almost no liquid. Mine typically takes 1 hour to 1 hour & 10 minutes
TIP: I've made this without Greek yogurt dip and with the dip. In my opinion, it's more flavorful with but if you don't have this ingredient, you may play with adding a bit more greek yogurt, some feta cheese and a light sprinkle of dill.
