My low carb Buffalo Dip is packed with protein and flavor! It’s the perfect appetizer to enjoy at a game day potluck or a yummy lunch to pair with crackers or carrots and celery.
Here’s the Deets on this Healthy Recipe
To make this yummy dip you’ll need greek yogurt and cream cheese for the bulk of this recipe. The greek yogurt will be where we will get the added protein in addition to the chicken.
I swapped out the sour cream in this recipe with greek yogurt to boost the protein content and reduce the fat content as well.
I kept the classic parts of this dip the same though by using the buffalo sauce as the key for doctoring this up along with the cheese. You can certainly choose a lower fat cheese such as mozzarella, but for this recipe I used my favorite cheese, which is a 4 cheese blend.
Here’s The Key Ingredients:
Cream cheese (softened)
Cheese of choice
You are going to need a pretty large bowl for this recipe as the yield is a generous 8×8 dip that is Thick.
I would also recommend getting some carrots, celery, and crackers to pair with this as it makes for a great crunchy combo!
It’s Super Simple
This dip is by far one of the quickest recipes you can make for a potluck or even as a part of your meal prep for the week.
It’s as simple as
Let the cream cheese soften and combine everything in a bowl
Spread the contents from the bowl in an 8×8 pan and add half the shredded cheese on the first layer
Pour the remaining batter into the 8×8 pan and top with the rest of the cheese and bake for 30 minutes
Let cool and garnish with green onions
Bam, just like that a Low Carb Buffalo Dip is done!
This Honey Glazed Salmon is the perfect recipe if you’re seeking something healthy and quick! This recipe can be whipped up in under 20 minutes and is the perfect complement to a bed of rice and steamed veggies.
I admit Salmon is something I have to be in the mood for, but I’ve never been able to figure out how to season or cook Salmon the right way until now.
How Should I Cook The Salmon?
Great question! I found that the key to avoiding overcooked Salmon is to time it just right! I cook it 4-6 minutes on each side in a good pan or skillet.
As much as I love to hold on to old cookware as I detest buying new things I opted for a newer large non-stick pan, and the results were so much better compared to that on my old freshman year of college pans.
And yes…I held them for over 4 years before throwing them away and I have no shame in doing so!
Give me the Deets on the Honey Glaze!
Luckily, this Honey Glaze is made with a rather slim ingredient list (as you will likely have most of the ingredients on hand) and requires holding your hunger for only a few more minutes before the dish is complete.
For the Honey Glaze you will need:
Oil of choice
Honey of course!
Salt and Pep
Now, I know his may seem like a lot but odds are you will have a majority of these ingredients on hand if you have a gluten-free pantry.
Can I Make This Honey Glaze Thicker Or Thinner?
Absolutely! The key to creating a thicker or thinner Honey Glaze is cornstarch, which I have fallen in love with as a thickening agent in many gluten-free sauces.
If you prefer a thicker sauce add an extra teaspoon of cornstarch to the cornstarch and water mixture (listed in the recipe card below) and a dash more of water.
To make it thinner, you will do the opposite. Simply, reduce the cornstarch by 1 teaspoon and maintain the amount of water that it calls for in the recipe.
What Can I Serve This With?
I find this dish is best served with rice, steamed veggies like broccolini and cauliflower, and potatoes.
Alternatively, you could also make a larger portion of the sauce and create a stir-fry with the salmon and pair it with sugar snap peas, peppers, and water chestnuts.
