Sharing is caring!

This Cottage Cheese Buffalo Chicken Dip is delicious and healthier than the original Buffalo Chicken Dip. Switch out one ingredient and you have the perfect dip that you can enjoy on your health kick journey.!

Cottage cheese is all the rage right now so I have been using it in a lot of recipes lately. My buffalo chicken dip is one of those recipes.

Buffalo chicken dip often gets a bad rep, but this healthy buffalo chicken dip is about to change that.

It still tastes absolutely amazing and is just a little bit lighter than regular buffalo chicken dip.

How to Make Cottage Cheese Buffalo Chicken Dip

Now I will be the first to tell you that I am NOT a fan of cottage cheese by itself. It is just something about the chunks in it that gross me out.

I was convinced I wasn't going to like it. But, you know what? This stuff is THE BOMB!

For this recipe you will need —

  • Chicken
  • cottage cheese
  • ranch dressing
  • hot sauce
  • cheddar cheese

The toppings are optional. For mine, I like to add a drizzle of sour cream, some chives, and a sprinkle of feta cheese. You can totally leave those off.

Bake it at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. You can use whatever baking pan you have on hand. I like to use my cast iron skillet for things like this.

Once it comes out, add the toppings and dig in. It really is that simple!
