Paleo Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe (Quick and Easy)

0 from 0 ratings

Is there anything more versatile to enjoy with your snacks than a great tasting dip? They just come in so many different varieties -- cheese dips, spinach dips, hummus dips, nacho dips, and of course, plenty of spicy hot dipping sauces. The only downside is that, quite often, those dips amount to quite a significant amount of calories from mostly junk. If you're the least bit health conscious, that's just unacceptable, especially when there are healthy (but tasty) options around.

Do you enjoy spicy hot dipping sauces? You are not alone. I just can’t seem to get enough spicy food as of late, especially in the evenings when the temperature starts to drop. Nothing like some hot soup or some spicy meals to heat us up, yes? With that, I am really excited to share something that you can easily whip up as a snack or a full-blown meal for the family. Enjoy it as a chips-and-dip sort of thing, or as a hearty dinner packed with flavor and 100% paleo-approved ingredients. You will not be disappointed.

This buffalo chicken dip is one of those “I can’t believe this is healthy!” dishes that people want you to make over and over again until you get so tired of making it that you decide to pass on the recipe to someone else. This is actually my second try at a buffalo chicken recipe, and it’s even more successful than my first. If you end up not liking how this one turns out, feel free to check out the earlier version too.

Authentic Flavors Made from Scratch

 The dip itself is extremely simple to prepare and it only requires about five minutes of time. All that you have to do is place all of the ingredients together in a bowl and stir them until they’re well incorporated. You’ll need one pound of shredded chicken breast along with some paleo-approved mayonnaise and of course, your favorite hot sauce. In addition to that, you’re going to add a savory mixture of herbs and spices including dried parsley, chives, dill weed, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and black pepper.

Take note that not all brands of hot sauce are considered paleo-approved. Have a look at the label for anything that’s not natural or anything that’s been overly processed. Tabasco and Frank’s RedHot are paleo favorites.

How Hot is Too Hot?

All of the above ingredients combine beautifully to make a tasty sauce for your chicken. Be sure to taste it before mixing your protein to check how spicy it is. Once everything is mixed together, it will be more difficult to adjust the flavors. Herbs and spices like those included in this recipe contain many excellent health benefits thanks to their antioxidant properties. (1)(2) They make fantastic replacements for other less healthy ingredients commonly used in many different recipes as well. There’s a reason why many different herbs and spices have been used by a variety of cultures dating back thousands of years.

Frying adds unnecessary grease to your food, so for this recipe, we’re going to bake your buffalo chicken instead. Another advantage of baking is that you can get a big batch done all at once, whereas frying would require you to work in batches. Once it’s done, sprinkle some spring onion on top for a bit of crunch.
