Can't wait to try it. Reply AnonymousFeb 5, 2010 05:24 AM What would the points be if the blue cheese was omitted? Or can you suggest something to sub in for the blue cheese? We don't really care for blue cheese, and why add the extra calories if we don't like it, right? Thanks! Love your recipes!! -Kassie Reply AnonymousFeb 5, 2010 06:01 AM Can this recipe be doubled? Reply AnonymousFeb 5, 2010 06:06 AM I have made the more "fattening" version so many times & it is always such a hit at any gathering! Thank you so much for slimming it down - I can't wait to try this version! All of your recipes are amazing! Thank you & Keep up the great work! Reply AnonymousFeb 5, 2010 07:39 AM Do you eat this with nacho chips? Reply GinaFeb 5, 2010 07:43 AM You can use cheddar in place of the blue cheese, it's better with cheese! This can be doubled, tripled, not a problem! I recommend using fresh chicken rather than chicken from a can. You can follow my recipe for the crock pot chicken stock the day before, and use the chicken for this (which is what I did) it will shred so easily! Reply RapunzelFeb 5, 2010 08:58 AM looks delicious! I wonder if I could substitute faux chicken to appease the vegetarians in my house? Reply GinaFeb 5, 2010 10:00 AM Never had faux chicken so can't really say. Reply GinaFeb 5, 2010 10:02 AM Yes, you can have this with nacho chips, crackers, or to keep the points lower, celery which I think is really good with this. Reply cakescrapsFeb 5, 2010 12:38 PM A friend made the regular version of this at a get together recently and I loved it. I'm glad to now have a lighter, WW friendly version! I'll be making this often, I'm sure. And for those that may not want to make their own chicken...you could always buy a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store and shred the meat. Reply GailFeb 7, 2010 08:44 AM All my smaller crock pots are in use today...any thoughts on baking this in the oven? Reply GinaFeb 7, 2010 09:45 AM Yes, of course you can make this in the oven. 350F for 20 minutes.

But you are such a blessing, Gina, you make me feel like I can eat regular, delicious food again.

Reply brittanyleeFeb 9, 2010 01:38 PM I made this dip, without the chicken, on Super Bowl Sunday and it was amazing! I did have to add more sour cream however, because the 1/2 cup hot sauce made it a little too spicy. GREAT recipe!! I love your blog!!

Reply AnonymousMar 16, 2010 06:17 PM I use mozzerella in mine because we aren't fans of blue cheese- its a great replacement! Reply SKoonceApr 3, 2010 01:56 PM just curious: what does the vinegar do? Or what does it replace? I'm noticing that a lot of WW recipes have a vinegar of sorts included. Is it supposed to kick up the flavor to substitute for an ingredient? Thanks! Reply GinaApr 5, 2010 11:10 AM I used it in place of ranch dressing, which has vinegar. Of course, you can leave it out if you wish. Same points!! Reply AnonymousApr 24, 2010 11:41 AM I just made this and wow it was great!! I didn't feel like waiting to cook it in the crock pot, so i added everything together and put it in the microwave. It was a little runny so i added some flour. I ate it over a WW english muffin for lunch. Wonderful!! I added a point for the flour so all together a 5 point lunch!!

The hard thing is trying to find recipes my husband will eat also…it’s tricky for sure…and we also have two children…so making two or three different dishes for one meal is just frustrating!

I assumed I should cut your amount in half but don't want to disappoint others who will be eating this! Thank you for this site, it is truly amazing! Reply stcmacJan 1, 2011 03:45 PM Love this! Just made it for the Rose Bowl (go Badgers) and it is a hit. Too hot for me...my tongue is on fire but I am making it again for weak tongues like mine. We used gorgonzola and it was FANTASTIC! Reply AnonymousJan 4, 2011 03:02 AM I answered my own question about the hot sauce...half the amount was perfect, great taste but not too spicy for me and my weak taste buds! I wanted to add that this was great with Tostitos scoops. Awesome recipe! Reply Cyc112Jan 9, 2011 01:34 PM I had a taste of the full fat version last night. I just made your recipe and it is better than the one I had last night. Like you and others have said, you can't tell this is low fat because it is so full of flavor. I also like spicy food so this is right up my alley. Thanks for sharing! New to your blog so I can't wait to try other recipes. Reply Gina @ SkinnytasteJan 10, 2011 10:58 AM Glad you all enjoyed it!!

Reply CrowsGirl15Feb 22, 2011 01:59 PM Well, when the hot sauce gets absorbed and the blue cheese and cream cheese melt, that would maybe make the volume go down? Reply Gina @ SkinnytasteFeb 23, 2011 10:17 AM Did you have 2 cups of cooked shredded chicken? It shouldn't decrease by that much. Perhaps you needed more chicken. Reply HeatherFeb 23, 2011 03:27 PM I made this for BUNCO tonight. OH YUM YUM! I probably made it too hot for the other ladies, but I think it's delicious!

A barbeque sauce perhaps that's low fat/low calorie? Reply Gina @ SkinnytasteFeb 27, 2011 08:57 AM Buffalo dip without the hot sauce just wouldn't be buffalo dip. The frank's hot sauce is pretty mild if you can handle it. Reply KelliMar 14, 2011 08:24 AM Has anyone tried this recipe with the Skinny Cow Blue Cheese Wedges?

Reply Gina @ SkinnytasteJun 2, 2011 09:51 AM Love the many ways you incorporate this! Reply Rebecca MartinezJun 2, 2011 05:35 PM Ok, so here's the honest truth. I have been avoiding making this because of how much I love the original and didn't want to be disappointed. I should have made it a LOT sooner, because it tasted just as good and didn't come with all the guilt of the full fat version!!!! This was awesome! I used canned chicken (didn't have time to cook any) and made it like I normally do. I heated the chicken in the skillet with the buffalo sauce, then added the cream cheese. Then the sour cream. I used shredded 2% cheddar and it turned out fabulously. I forgot about the vinegar. When I remembered the pan was half gone so I'll try it next time. :) Reply Gina @ SkinnytasteJun 2, 2011 07:52 PM Rebecca I am happy you took a chance then! You don't need all the fat to make food taste good :) Reply Nurse KatJun 10, 2011 11:22 AM Oh my gosh, I had been thinking about making this all week and then last night I finally did! it was AMAZING! I ate it with celery for dinner and it hit the spot! I used 2% mexican cheese blend instead because my blue cheese was looking a little iffy. I plan on making this frequently in the future!

I'm thinking of taking it to a party and don't want to take the crock pot with me... btw...love your blog! Reply Aubrey HSep 1, 2011 11:39 AM So do I cook the raw chicken in the sauce in the crockpot for 3-4 hours? I couldn't figure out why the cooked chicken (called for in the recipe) needed to be in the crock pot for so long. Also, if it only calls for 2 cups of chicken, does this really make 5 cups of dip? I'm tempted to add more chicken thinking it's not going to make very much? Reply Gina @ SkinnytasteSep 2, 2011 07:06 PM This should make 4 1/2 cups, and you should use cooked shredded chicken. You could cook it less time on the stove if you prefer to make it quicker. Reply mchicago88Sep 3, 2011 11:37 AM Does it matter what size the crock pot is? If mine is a 9 quart, am I better off using the oven or the massive crock pot? Just want to make sure I get the best results!

Reply SamanthaNov 17, 2011 05:04 PM I'm not sure what I did wrong, but I only got 2 cups total of dip?

I subbed in nonfat plain greek yogurt for the sour cream and left out the blue cheese (b/c i don't love it) and it's 75 calories in a 1/2 cup! I also put about 1T of the dip as the filling in a croissant roll for an easy appetizer..they were great! Reply AnonymousDec 22, 2011 09:26 AM I was a hit at the party, thanks to this recipe!!! All the guys wanted the recipe and didn't believe it was a low-fat version! Changes I made- used low-fat blue cheese and sprinkled 1/4 C of low-fat cheddar just before serving- NO ONE knew there was no cheddar cheese throughout. The consistency is just like the full-fat version. I baked it at 350 until hot and bubbly instead of crock pot- fabulous either way, though :) Reply AnonymousDec 22, 2011 01:33 PM First of all, I'm a fairly new reader, but your recipes look amazing. I am always looking for healthy alternatives to the traditional comfort foods my fiance loves, and you hit on so many of them! Quick question about this dip. Can it be made with raw chicken in the slow cooker, or does it have to be cooked first? I see you referenced a slow cooker chicken recipe in one of your comments, but I didn't see it on your site. Can you post a link to it? Reply Foodie FloresDec 28, 2011 08:04 PM I made this for a party and it was a huge hit! Thank you for making healthy cooking fun and creative! I just love your site. Reply caitlynDec 30, 2011 08:44 AM This is simply delicious!! So good that people were asking for the recipe when I brought it to a party.. they were even more impressed that it's low-fat. Love your site.. I follow it daily. :) Reply OliviaDec 30, 2011 11:09 AM LOVED this recipe! Found it on Pinterest and was so exited to try it! For those asking, I think it's best to cook the chicken first. I boiled two, fresh chicken breasts that were on sale at a local grocery story, shredded it myself and I must say I think that made all the difference! My mom tried to convince me to use canned chicken, but I don't think it would have been nearly as good. I followed the recipe pretty much exactly, but I used Tapatio hot sauce and should have only used maybe a 1/4 of a cup... 1/2 cup was too much for me and my mom, but my husband loved it like it was. That's just a matter of opinion, the dip was delish!! I also added in more blue cheese (not as concerned with the WW points, but still LOVED the healthier option!) Noone could tell it was lower in fat, and it was a HUGE hit! Thanks for the recipe!!

Thank you again :-) Reply MichelleJan 13, 2012 08:48 PM Can someone add me to pinterest as well? Michelle.firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks"" Reply AnonymousJan 15, 2012 10:09 AM YUMM. I found this today and just made it. So good! I made it with texas pete buffalo sauce and mozzarella cheese since I had that instead. Also baked it in the oven (350) for 25 minutes. Next time will try the crock pot. Reply NadineJan 15, 2012 02:38 PM Thanks for this great recipe! I've made it twice so far, and it was loved by all. I used all-white-meat chicken breast cans to make it quicker, and I just mashed the chunks with a fork. A 12.5 oz can yields about 1 1/2 cups of chicken. I baked for about 40mins at 350F to get it really warm and bubbly. We like things super spicy, so I added significantly more Frank's hot sauce as well as a few tablespoons of Frank's Buffalo Wing sauce, which has more of a kick. The bleu cheese crumbles have a very strong flavor so I decreased it by about half both times, though I think next time I'll use even less, maybe 1/3. Overall a great "lite" recipe for a delicious appetizer/party snack! Thanks again :) Reply AngelaJan 22, 2012 08:54 AM I made this yesterday. Only thing I didn't care for was the franks red hot. I'm just not a fan of the taste. I would normally make chicken wing dip with Nance's Chicken Wing Sauce. I will definitely be making this in the future and trying it with different wing sauces. Reply ChristiJan 22, 2012 12:51 PM I made this today for football - used greek yogurt instead of sour cream. That's what I have on hand and baked up well. Next time I'll up the hot sauce a touch but it's really yummy with carrots, celery and tortilla chips. Reply ErinMSWJan 24, 2012 11:36 AM I have made the full-fat version for the past 3 years at our Super Bowl party. I'm excited to see if anyone notices when I switch it out for this skinny version! Oh, and THANK YOU for putting the raw chicken weight in for the 2 cups of shredded chicken - I always use way too much chicken and it gets dried out! Now I have a better idea of how many chicekn breasts to use! Brilliant! Reply AnonymousJan 24, 2012 03:56 PM I make this using drained and rinsed[in hot water to remove any fats] canned chicken, fat free cream cheese, and Franks Buffalo Sauce. And I use celery instead of chips or crackers. This makes it very low in w.w. pts. and the taste is simply amazing! Reply vlo1125Jan 26, 2012 06:24 AM made this last night, i always forget how wonderful this one is. i take my 1/2cup serving and divide it on two toasted Healthy Life hamburger buns(1 pt each, old pts) and then i get 2 buffalo chicken sandwiches for 5 pts total!i always follow the recipe except for one thing, i use 1/2 cup of light sour cream and 1/2 cup of FF plain yogurt. only because i never buy FF sour cream so I improvise. idk if you remember me at all but ive been following your blog for awhile and fell off plan in the last year. now im back on plan and have lost 15 lbs in my first 3 weeks eating my favorite recipes from here! much love Gina! Reply vlo1125Jan 26, 2012 03:15 PM ive had this for dinner and lunch for 2 days, my husband had some and a friend. each time i measured out a 1/2 cup so only 5 servings have been eaten, why does it look like i only have enough for 2 more servings when i should have 4? same thing always happen to me when i make the turkey taco chili, i never come out with the right servings which skews the points. if this only makes 7 1/2 cups servings than it comes out to 4 points..... what am i doing wrong here? Reply Replies Gina @ SkinnytasteJan 26, 2012 06:48 PM Yes I remember you! I'll try to make it again this week and see why it's coming up wrong. Reply vlo1125Jan 26, 2012 08:35 PM Thanks! maybe its cause i measure out the chicken after ive shredded it and i should just weigh it raw at 14oz? or perhaps i pack that 1/2 cup tightly and its more of a "loose" half cup. its so good its worth 4 points anyways so no big deal i was just wondering why i was short. i suppose i could weigh the whole thing when its done cooking, and divide it into 9 even portions on the food scale? Reply AnonymousJan 29, 2012 10:14 PM to those that want a blue cheese sub- there's a yogurt salad dressing called Bolthouse Farms (they have it at most grocery stores in the produce refrigerated section with the expensive juice drinks) they make a ranch and blue cheese, both are really great and I have used both in a similar recipe at home. Im not so sure if the flavor would be different with the vinegar... but I would use the ranch any day.. and the plus side is that 2T only has 45 calories Reply AnonymousFeb 2, 2012 12:16 AM Does the chicken go in the crock pot raw? Or does it need to be pre cooked and shredded before going in with the other ingredients? krnt <3 Reply vlo1125Feb 2, 2012 09:25 PM anon~ chicken needs to be pre-cooked then shredded. i sugguest poaching in water on stove top. Gina~ made it again and still could barely scrape seven 1/2 cup servings out of it. idk... Reply AnonymousFeb 4, 2012 08:01 AM in the full fat version, they always say you can use ranch dressing instead of blue cheese dressing, because many people don't like blue cheese. so, i'm sure you could use fat free ranch dressing instead of blue cheese. i loved it with the ranch. Reply CarlaFeb 5, 2012 04:41 PM This was DELICIOUS!!! my husband and I have been using your delicious recipes for 5 weeks and you certainly do NOT disappoint! Made this dip and the artichoke dip for Super Bowl today and LOVED them both!! Especially this buffalo dip because spicy buffalo wings are my weakness!! Thank you so much!! Taking it as a sandwich for my lunch tomorrow! Reply deb212Feb 6, 2012 04:26 AM Made this for a superbowl party yesterday and it was a hit! Great blog! Reply StephanieFeb 6, 2012 06:55 AM Made this for superbowl yesterday and it went over well - just the perfect amount of "kick." I also had the same issue as VLO125 where I did not get 9 servings. I started with a pound of raw chicken breast and measured everything else to a tee. My biggest dilemma was how to cook - it was too much for my mini crock pot but was dwarfed in the full size one. I'll have to experiment some more - will definitely make again. Reply AmberFeb 6, 2012 11:25 AM This was AMAZING! I honestly could not stop eating it! I didn't put it in the crock pot, because I have a huge one, so I just stuck it on the burner on low for a few hours. WONDERFUL app! Reply AnonymousFeb 6, 2012 11:44 AM Made this for the Superbowl last night, and it is so delicious! I had been tempting my husband all week, saying I was going to make it, and it did not disappoint! The taste is so full-flavored, we did not miss the ingredients of the high fat recipe. I will make this all of the time! I followed the ingredients exactly except for the chicken, I used a 12.5 ounce can of chicken breast chunks. I baked it in the oven for probably 45 minutes. Delicious - thank you so much!!!! Reply Gina @ SkinnytasteFeb 6, 2012 01:00 PM I just remade this to check the serving size and not sure how I messed up before but sorry, a serving size is 1/3 of a cup, not 1/2. It's still a lot of dip if you ask me, but I apologize for my error. Reply Bowles FamilyFeb 6, 2012 01:57 PM Gina, this is my first post, but hardly the first recipe I have made from your incredible website. I had the full fat version of this at a baby shower last weekend for the first time, and loved it. I was SHOCKED to find the lightened up version on here! You are my hero! Made for a Super bowl party last night and served with celery and pita chips. Soooo good! My friends couldn't believe it was "light", and frankly neither could I. Delicious, as usual. :) Reply Robin A.Feb 6, 2012 08:46 PM I quadrupled this recipe for Super Bowl Sunday, and it was a hit! It's even good cold the next day right out of the fridge! YUM! Reply AnonymousFeb 8, 2012 06:31 AM Gina you say 2 cups (14oz raw). Does that mean that the 2 cups are cooked. And does that mean if I weigh the cooked (I just shredded 2 1/2 pounds) it will be 16oz??? Reply AnonymousFeb 10, 2012 09:19 AM I hear using Greek Yogurt is a good substitution for Sour Creme. Reply
