Today is Slow Cooking Thursday! Post your favorite crockpot recipe on your blog and go to http://familycorner.blogspot.com/ and add your link and title.. don’t forget to comment! Here is my entry:
4 to 5 cups cooked skinless, boneless chicken, cubed or diced
1/2 pound low-fat cream cheese, at room temperature
1 12-ounce bottle Frank’s Buffalo-wing sauce
2 4-ounce packages reduced-fat feta cheese, crumbled — see note
Finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Tortilla chips, Fritos, or celery sticks, for serving
Chop the cooked chicken into pieces small enough to sit on a chip.
In a microwave-safe glass bowl, combine the cream cheese and hot sauce. Heat on 60 percent power for 4 minutes or until cheese is softened and mixture will stir. Remove to the bowl of a food processor or mix in bowl of electric mixer to combine. Add feta or blue cheese and chicken and stir well by hand. Put mixture into ovenproof baking dish. Note: This can be done night before serving and refrigerated to this point.
Before serving, sprinkle with cheddar cheese and bake for 30 minutes at 325°.
Serve surrounded by chips and celery sticks. Put out bottle of hot sauce for those who prefer a hotter dip.
Food safety note: Keep dip on a warming tray, or over a chafing dish for up to two hours; refrigerate after that.
Note: Substitute the feta with blue cheese, or a mixture of feta and blue, for a tangier dip.
To make in slow-cooker: Double or triple the recipe. Prepare as directed, but pour into slow-cooker pot. Cover, and set on medium heat and heat for 2 hours to cook; reduce heat to warm setting for serving. Keep covered and stir occasionally to keep mixture blended.
Cooks notes: For an extra jolt of heat, add up to 1/2 bottle additional hot sauce. To control the thickness of the sauce as it sits in the slow cooker without adding more fire, use chili sauce instead of adding hot sauce.
