Guaranteed to be an instant comfort food favorite. Inspired by a Rachel Ray recipe, I have modified it by adding a creamy and cheesy kick to it. You'll be dreaming about this dish. Feel free to play with the recipe. I put in the cream cheese and Cheddar to make it creamier. I am a huge fan of Buffalo Chicken Dip and wanted this dish to be similar.

My husband and I enjoyed these very much. I only used 1 lb of chicken since it was just 2 of us but used the full amt of sauce. I doubled the hot sauce and reduced the chicken stock by the same amount so I ended up with 1 cup of liquid. That was the perfect amount of heat for us but I would build up to it if you don't care for a good amount of spicy. I find buffalo chicken dip can be too rich with all the cream cheese but this recipe incorporated it perfectly; enough to taste it but not overwhelming. Thanks for the keeper! Read More

Made these for my boyfriend and I a couple nights ago and we were pleasantly surprised! Didn't know what to expect as we never really make ground chicken or sloppy joes. I more than doubled the hot sauce because as many people have said it wasn't spicy enough as is. Also left off the bleu cheese. One thing I'd highly recommend: Make sure you serve with sturdy hamburger buns. Ours were just the store brand and they did not hold up! Read More

I thought this was very good and will be making it again. If you like buffalo chicken dip you will enjoy this recipe! Here were my changes: Was not spicy enough as written so I probably more than doubled the buffalo sauce (just added to taste until it was as spicy as I wanted). I only used 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar and I doubt the recipe needs that at all. Only added 4 oz shredded cheddar and added some nacho cheese sauce I had on hand. The mixture was liquidy after cooking so I added a bit of flour to thicken it and let it sit simmering for 20 minutes which helped. I served this on thick TOASTED bread (I liked the textural addition of something crunchy). Read More

This was a crowd pleaser for sure. Made a batch on Sunday and we have been eating the leftovers ever since. Today I warmed about a half cup up in the microwave then mixed it with tortilla chips salsa lettuce and guacamole for a delicious salad. Restaurant quality. Will make this again. I used the whole eight-ounce package of cream cheese (instead of six) just to use it up. Read More

Also works great on pasta! I boiled macaroni and black beans drained and then put this mixture on top. Love it! Quick and easy hot meal that I can get on the table for my family in less than 30 minutes when I get home from work. Read More

This is really good with a few minor changes... and I think I like it more as a warm dip than a sandwich. I didn't have red wine vinegar so I used what I had on hand roasted garlic vinegar. I was also out of brown sugar so substituted white sugar. I cut the cheddar cheese in half as I'm attempting to limit my cheese intake. It turned out Amazing! I served it as a dip with slices of celery and it was eaten up in no time at a football party. Some people enjoyed it with Tostitos Scoops. Read More

I am so happy to find a recipe that uses ground chicken! The sauce was good but not very spicy. Next time I will add more buffalo wing sauce. I omitted the cheddar cheese because I didn't want it to be too cheesy flavored. After topping it with the blue cheese crumbles I also sprinkled French-fried onions on top to give it a nice crunch. Yum! Thanks for the recipe. Read More
