Dean’s Dip Buffalo Ranch Chicken Poppers

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dean’s Dip for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

These Buffalo Ranch Chicken Poppers are perfect for parties, dinner, or even the kiddo’s lunchbox if they’re okay with a little kick. Crunchy, poppable, and perfectly delicious.

When I was growing up, we had a lot of parties. Block parties, Halloween parties, and pool parties. Both my grandmothers excelled at hosting parties, and I like to think that my sister and I get our party-throwing skills from them.

At each party, we always had a great mix of homemade and store-bought snacks. It isn’t a party without seven layer dip, or Dean’s Ranch Dip, both of which are exceptional paired with Doritos.

So when Dean’s Dip offered to partner with me to create a recipe featuring their new Buffalo Ranch Dip, I was all over it. Any reason to make and eat party food!

If you know me in real life, spicy buffalo wings aren’t something I normally reach for. While I like a slow burn, intense heat is not something I look for in my food. The good news is, this Buffalo Ranch Dip is perfect for both timid eaters and heat seekers alike. While I lightly dip my chips in, and get a small coating, James can go full-on-dunk, and we’re both happy with the heat level.

And in making this chicken, I added just a little extra cream cheese and an egg, both of which helped to mellow out while enhancing the fantastic bold flavor provided by Dean’s Dip Buffalo Ranch Dip.

Even better? These Buffalo Ranch Chicken Poppers are kid approved. I shared them with friends, and got a resounding thumbs up from even the littlest in the group.

Panko provides a nice crunch to these baked chicken bites. You can serve them as dinner by making bigger chunks, or as I have here as an appetizer. I think each bite-sized popper is perfect as is, but serve the bites with extra dip so folks can kick up the heat if they want to.

You’re gonna love ‘em. Creamy ranch meets bold buffalo in one dip. And you can pick it up in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. I found mine near the sour cream.
