Chicken breast on keto diet is a perfect choice. There are so many keto chicken breast recipes you can make.

I used keto-friendly ingredients to flavor the chicken, including hot sauce and a blend of cheeses. Hot sauce is low in calories and carbs, which makes it an ideal way to flavor your food. 

It’s also low maintenance. There are no fancy sauces required for this recipe. Just add hot sauce! It couldn’t be simpler, which makes it a good option for a busy weeknight dinner.

Cream cheese and sour cream are good sources of calcium and protein, which are both needed for bone health. Sour cream has the added benefit of providing healthy bacteria, which is needed for gut health.

Research shows that your gut bacteria plays an important role in the onset of human diseases (1). You can support a healthy digestive system by eating plenty of fiber and adding probiotics to your diet. If you’re not big on taking supplements, then sour cream is a good way to sneak some healthy bacteria in.

The best part about this recipe is that you get to use your instant pot! It locks flavor in and makes your meat juicier than oven-baked dishes, which sometimes cause your meat to dry out (especially lean cuts, like chicken or turkey breast).

In my recipes, I use the Instant Pot 3-Quart Duo Mini 7-in-1. This model is ideal to cook for one to two people while the 6-quart and 8-quart models are intended for bigger families.

Why is my buffalo chicken dip soupy?

From my experience, your buffalo chicken dip may be soupy due to excess moisture from the chicken or other ingredients. When cooking, you need to make sure the chicken is well-drained and consider reducing liquid ingredients or using cream cheese or a denser sour cream to thicken the dip.

How do you keep buffalo chicken dip from separating?

To prevent buffalo chicken dip from separating, I suggest you let all ingredients cool down at room temperature before mixing. Additionally, avoid overheating the dip, and use full-fat cream cheese as it binds better and is less prone to curdling compared to low-fat versions. Mixing the hot sauce, sour cream, and cream cheese thoroughly until smooth before adding to the chicken can also help achieve a consistent texture.

How to store buffalo chicken dip

You can store your chicken dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. If you plan to keep it longer, consider freezing it. Before freezing, you must allow the dip to cool completely, then transfer it to a freezer-safe container or resealable plastic bag, removing as much air as possible. Label with the date and store in the freezer for up to 2-3 months.

How to reheat frozen buffalo chicken dip

To reheat frozen buffalo chicken dip, first thaw it in the refrigerator overnight. Then, transfer it to an oven-safe dish and bake at 350°F (175°C) for 20-25 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally to ensure even warming. If desired, you can also microwave it in a microwave-safe dish, stirring every 2 minutes until hot.

What to serve with buffalo chicken dip on keto?

You can serve buffalo chicken dip on keto with celery sticks, cucumber slices, bell pepper strips, pork rinds, or low carb crackers for a low-carb dipping experience.
