Its almost that time of year again….the day we get together, turn on the TV, and allow ourselves to consume large quantities of super yummy, fattening foods, and lots of beer, in order to celebrate the most anxiously awaited game in the NFL…the SUPERBOWL!! I love Superbowl parties as much as anyone, but if you’re not careful, these parties can be a weight watchers nightmare!! So this week, I’m devoting each day to a different low calorie Superbowl recipes that not only taste good, but will help keep you on track to reaching your weight loss goals. Though these aren’t official Weight Watchers Superbowl Recipes, they are ideal for anyone who wants healthier, lower calorie versions of their favorite Superbowl snacks. And today, I’m posting this super rockin’ 2 Points Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe that will knock your socks off! It’s a very easy Superbowl recipe that will be adored by all, and is a great (and less messy) alternative to serving buffalo wings. Try serving it with some 0 Point veggies (I like celery and green pepper strips the best), or some low points tortilla chips. If you love buffalo flavored anything, this low calorie dip recipe is a must try!

Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

Ingredients:
– 16 oz boneless, skinless chicken breasts
– 1 tsp salt
– 1/2 tsp pepper
– 1 tsp garlic powder
– 1 tsp onion powder
– 8-oz. fat-free cream cheese, softened
– 1/2 cup fat free sour cream
– 1/2 cup Frank’s RedHot Original Cayenne Pepper Sauce
– 2 tbsp low calorie butter ( I used Brummel & Brown)
– 1/2 packet of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing Dry Mix

NOTE: If you are feeling lazy, you can use two 9.75oz cans of white chicken meat in water (drained), instead of the grilled chicken, but the taste isn’t nearly as good as using actual grilled chicken breasts.

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Rub chicken breasts with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. Spray a skillet with non-fat cooking spray, and set on med/high heat. Put in chicken breasts, and cook until brown on both sides and meat is cooked through. Once meat is cooked, cut it up into bite sized shredded chunks. Set aside. In a large, oven safe bowl, stir cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add in chicken and other remaining ingredients, and mix until thoroughly combined. Bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until dip has heated all the way through.

Entire recipe makes 12 servings
Serving size is approx 1/2 cup
Each serving = 2 Points

  1. I tried this recipe and it was pretty good. However, I must say that I altered it a bit. I found that it was more of a crowd pleaser the second time i made it with KFC fried chicken, real butter, and 2% cheese (the kind with the Philadelphia Cream cheese in it). And i added a half jar of velvetta and a few tabelspoons of mayonnaise. Add salt, top and spread about 4 heaping tablespoons of Manwich, sprinkle with parmesan cheese and real bacon bits. Bake 30 minutes. OMG. This was sooooo good! Thank you for the great idea!

  2. I dont know whats going on but ever since i started eating the recipes from this site i either loose very little nuthing at all or gain weight whats up with that
