Healthy Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

Greek yoghurt, low-fat cream cheese, and nutritional yeast make the greatest healthy buffalo chicken dip silky, protein-packed, and mayonnaise-free.  

– 2 cups shredded cooked chicken, I used rotisserie – 1 – 2 tbsp unsalted butter or olive oil – 1 small yellow onion, finley chopped – 2 – 3 large garlic cloves, minced – ½ cup buffalo sauce or Frank's Red Hot Sauce – 1 ¼ cup plain Greek yogurt – ⅓ cup reduced-fat or Neufchatel ​​cream cheese – 2 tbsp lemon juice, fresh – 1 tbsp dijon mustard – 3 – 4 tbsp nutritional yeast – ¾ tsp dried dill – ½ tsp onion powder – ½ tsp paprika – 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese or mozzarella cheese, (reserve ⅓ cup for sprinkling on top) Garnishes: 1 large green onion thinly sliced and/or sprinkle of feta or blue cheese


Preheat the oven to 400°F and grease an 8x8" baking dish. Any round or square dish will work, but if it's larger than 8x8", heat it for three to five minutes less.
