These easy 6-ingredient Mini Buffalo Chicken Dip Bread Bowls are spicy, cheesy, crusty and fun to eat! When WW (formerly Weight Watchers) recently updated their program to the new myWW plans, I was tasked with going back through all my posted recipes to update the points. While it was a tedious task, I honestly came across recipes I’d almost forgotten about! I guess that’s what happens when you’d been blogging for 9 years now. Anyway, one of the recipes I had forgotten were these Mini Spinach Dip Bread Bowls, and as soon as I saw them I thought “aha! I need to do another twist on these, STAT!” I am a Buffalo girl, so being true to my roots I immediately knew that filling French bread cups with buffalo chicken dip was the best idea.
Now that I’ve made them I can confirm that these Mini Buffalo Chicken Dip Bread Bowls are everything I hoped they’d be. A crusty, fluffy French bread exterior, filled with spicy, creamy, cheesy Buffalo chicken dip! These mini bowls are perfect to eat as a meal or to serve as hearty finger food at a party, while watching the game, or chatting at book club. Not only are they tasty, but each one is just 122 calories or 4 myWW SmartPoints on the Green, Blue or Purple plans!

Mini Buffalo Chicken Dip Bread Bowls
- 3 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature
- 3 oz cooked, shredded boneless skinless chicken breast
- 2 tablespoons light blue cheese dressing (I used Marzetti light chunky blue cheese dressing)
- 3-4 tablespoons Frank’s Red Hot original cayenne pepper sauce (I use 4 tablespoons and it’s zippy)
- 1 (11 oz) tube of Pillsbury Crusty French Bread dough
- 1 oz 50% reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese (I use Cabot)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Lightly mist a 12 cup standard-sized muffin tin with cooking spray.
- Combine the cream cheese, shredded chicken, blue cheese dressing and hot sauce in a mixing bowl and stir until well combined.
- Remove the roll of bread dough from the package and place it on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to cut it into 10 equal-sized rounds (around an inch thick). Use your fingers to press each round into a 3” circle and then press the dough circle into the bottom of a muffin tin well and up the sides to form a bowl shape. Evenly distribute the dip from step two amongst the dough cups and sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over the tops. *There will be two empty muffin tin wells, as this recipe makes 10*
- Place into the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes until the edges of the bread cups start to turn golden. Allow to cook for a few minutes before removing from the tin.
