Ketogenic Buffalo Chicken Dip (PLUS 100+ Easy Keto Recipes)


If Sundays at your house are reserved for football like they are at mine, this dip is sure to be a touchdown hit for the whole crowd. Packed with cheesy goodness and spicy chicken, this recipe will have you scraping the edges to get every last bite. I like to tone the heat up with some heavy-handed shakes of hot sauce-my favorite is Tabasco Chipotle Pepper Sauce for a light smoky flavor.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 4 boneless chicken thighs
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • 8 ounces (1 package) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ½ cup hot sauce, additional as needed
  • ½ cup Ranch Dressing, or purchased bottled dressing
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven 450°F.
  2. Heat a large skillet with cover over medium-high. Add the butter and melt.
  3. Add the garlic and chicken to the skillet. Cook for 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium. Turn the chicken so it cooks on all sides, cooking for 12 to 15 minutes total.
  4. With a meat thermometer, check the chicken for doneness. It should reach 165°F. When cooked, remove the chicken to a large bowl. Set aside to cool.
  5. Shred the cooled chicken into bite-size pieces.
  6. Add the sour cream, salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and paprika to the shredded chicken. Mix well.
  7. In a 9-inch-square pan, spread the cream cheese over the bottom and up the sides, coating evenly. Pour the chicken mixture over the cream cheese layer.
  8. Drizzle the hot sauce and Ranch Dressing over the chicken mixture, distributing evenly.
  9. Top with the mozzarella and Cheddar cheeses.
  10. Using a butter knife, swirl the ingredients together in the pan.
  11. Place the pan in the preheated oven. Bake for 15 minutes, or until the top layer is browned and bubbling.
  12. Remove the pan from the oven. Cool the dip for 5 minutes before serving.
