The Big Game is right around the corner and that means party time for many of you! While my New England team didn’t make it, I will still be tuning in and enjoying some yummy appetizers and snacks like this Buffalo Onion Ranch Dip with Chicken that I recently made. Thanks to Lipton® Recipe Secrets® Onion Soup Mix this dip is the perfect cross between buffalo chicken dip and French Onion dip in one delicious bowl.
Do you plan on serving sweet and savory Big Game snacks or more salty snacks? I guess I am stuck in the middle because my kids prefer more sweeter things, but my husband and I crave the salty crunch of chips with savory dips. I made a test batch of this Buffalo Onion Ranch Dip with Chicken to see if it would be a hit with my picky husband. We had a lighter dinner and then after the gym (haha, I know) we enjoyed a bowl of this dip and some chips. My brain said to go with the carrot sticks but my stomach was like-chips, chips, chips!
Regardless, this Buffalo Onion Ranch Dip was scrumptious and a little too good! I cooked up some white meat chicken breast (about 2 cups) that I sliced super thin so it cooked up in like 5 mins. After it was done, I allowed it to cool, and shredded it by hand to get the pieces a little finer. I added in the cheese, milk, pepper sauce, and Lipton® Recipe Secrets® Onion Soup Mix packet, (a little extra cheese) baked it and in 20 minutes I has a golden bowl of warm, savory dip. It was certainly a recipe that could be prepped, and warmed ahead of time too!
