One recipe that has gained popularity in recent years is Buffalo Chicken Dip. This creamy and spicy dish is a crowd-pleaser, especially during game day gatherings or social events. In this blog post, we will explore how you can enjoy a healthier version of this classic appetizer using Optavia products. So, if you're looking for a flavorful and weight loss-friendly twist on Buffalo Chicken Dip, keep reading to learn more.


Optavia is a renowned weight loss program that offers portion-controlled meals and snacks to support individuals in achieving their weight loss goals. The program emphasizes balanced nutrition, incorporating lean proteins, healthy fats, and low glycemic index carbohydrates into meals. Optavia products are designed to provide convenience and structure, making it easier for individuals to stay on track with their weight loss journey.


To create a healthier version of Buffalo Chicken Dip using Optavia products, we can substitute some of the traditional ingredients with Optavia-friendly alternatives. Here's a simple recipe to get you started:

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken breast (grilled or baked)

  • 1 cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt

  • 1/2 cup hot sauce (look for a low-sodium and sugar-free option)

  • 1 packet of Optavia Creamy Buffalo Chicken Flavored Soup

  • 1/4 cup diced celery

  • 1/4 cup diced red onion

  • 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese

  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • Optional toppings: chopped green onions, additional hot sauce for drizzling

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the shredded chicken, Greek yogurt, hot sauce, and Optavia Creamy Buffalo Chicken Flavored Soup packet. Stir until well combined.

  3. Add the diced celery, red onion, shredded cheddar cheese, and black pepper to the mixture. Mix thoroughly.

  4. Transfer the mixture to an oven-safe dish and spread it evenly.

  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the dip is heated through and the cheese is melted and bubbly.

  6. Remove from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes.

  7. Garnish with chopped green onions and drizzle with additional hot sauce, if desired.

  8. Serve with Optavia-friendly veggie sticks, such as celery, cucumber, or bell peppers.

By using Optavia Creamy Buffalo Chicken Flavored Soup, which is specifically designed to support weight loss and provide a balance of nutrients, we can reduce the calorie and fat content of the traditional dip while maintaining its bold flavor. Greek yogurt is a great substitute for sour cream or mayonnaise, as it is lower in calories and fat while providing a creamy texture. Adding fresh vegetables like celery and red onion not only adds crunch and flavor but also increases the nutrient content of the dip.


This Optavia Buffalo Chicken Dip is a fantastic option for those following the Optavia program or anyone looking to make healthier choices without sacrificing taste. It offers a good source of lean protein, which helps keep you feeling full and satisfied. Additionally, it can be a great addition to your party menu or as a flavorful snack option during the day.


Remember, while this recipe is designed to fit within the Optavia program, portion control is still essential. Be mindful of your portion sizes and enjoy the dip as part of a balanced meal or snack. Pair it with Optavia-friendly vegetable sticks to increase the fiber content and create a more substantial and satisfying eating experience.
