Skinny Buffalo Chicken Dip

Big on taste, but low in calories, this skinny buffalo chicken dip is sure to be a game day pleaser this fall!


Since I’ve been on this weight loss journey, and by the way I’ve lost 130 pounds and am now maintainingwhoop! whoop!, I have totally changed how I think about food and my relationship with it.  BUT….that doesn’t mean I still don’t appreciate, and like to have, a great party dip, especially during football season!

Seriously, it isn’t quite football season and game day without some Buffalo Wings, but for me those are off the menu.  Instead, I love to make this Skinny Buffalo Chicken Ranch Dip! It’s become a family favorite and a perfect “skinner” option for your friends and family that are watching their waistline.

Skinny Buffalo Ranch Chicken Dip

Serve it with large wedges of bell pepper, cucumber and, of course, celery for an even healthier way to scoop it into your mouth!
