Buffalo Chicken Dip

The holidays call for parties with lots of appetizers
at Purple Chocolat Home.

This year we tried a new one that will be on the
favorite's list from now on.  We all are a little 
addicted to that savory heat of buffalo chicken wings
so when I saw a recipe for a dip
recreating those flavors in
magazine, I knew that we would be testing this
one out.
(I had never purchased this magazine before, but absolutely
loved it - of course it is all about lovely southern lady style!!!)

I did tweak the recipe just a little for convenience
and personal taste. 

Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

2 large cooked chicken breasts, cut into small cubes
1 tsp. onion powder
1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
5-6 oz. blue cheese (I love Boar's Head if you can find it.
We have it at Harmon's Grocery Store.)
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
8 oz. sour cream
8 oz. shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 C. Frank's Red Hot Wings Sauce - Buffalo
(get the regular, the hot buffalo is too hot for us)

Preheat the oven to 350.  Lightly grease an 8x8 or
medium sized casserole dish. (Mine is a beautiful new treasure
that I found while treasure hunting 
 Home Goods this year.)
Mix everything together in a microwave safe bowl,
reserving a little of the
blue cheese.  Place the bowl in the microwave and
heat for 1-2 minute or until everything can 
stir together nicely.
Place the mixture in the dish and bake for 20  
minutes or until the cheese mix is bubbling.
Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top and bake another
5 minutes.

Serve with toasted pita triangles as I did (just cut the
pitas and spray with Pam and toast in the oven for
about 10 minutes at 350) or with crackers, or bread
(The family loved this so much, they ate it after in 

(The original was doubled and had you cook raw
chicken in olive oil adding fresh onion and garlic.  They 
also added additional salt and red pepper.  I chose to
use cooked chicken and omitted the salt and red pepper.)

(Before baking)

Fabulous flavor.  Give this one a try - perfect
for New Year's or the Super bowl!

(If you can find it, give Southern Lady Magazine a try too.
The whole Holiday magazine was filled with beautiful
tablescapes, tempting recipes and Christmas decor.  
I will definitely be buying this magazine again.)

I will be posting this with


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
