Buffalo Chicken Nachos

Gina Davis


This is a fast fix on a longer version of this recipe I make. My hubby and one of my daughters swears this is better then the homemade everything version! (I will post it next time I make it) Use of the pitas keeps the chips crunchy longer then the tortilla chip does :) And to make it even easier then this version you can replace the baked chicken with the Swanson buffalo canned chicken breast or reg. canned breast.

How to Make Buffalo Chicken Nachos


  • 1***THE SECRET TO THIS DISH IS TO GET IT TOGETHER WHILE EVERYTHING IS HOT :) That keeps the chips from getting soggy
  • 2Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • 3Coat chicken breast in a little of the wing sauce and then sprinkle with the taco seasoning (use it like you would a dry rub)
  • 4Place chicken on a wire rack and place this on a baking sheet.
  • 5Bake at 350 degree for 25 - 30 minutes or until chicken is done.
  • 6Remove from oven and let cool slightly and dice into small bite size pieces. ****LEAVE OVEN ON 350 degree to bake Nachos in.
  • 7While Chicken is baking in a medium sauce pan mix together 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup mayo, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1 pack ranch dip or dressing mix, 8 oz blue cheese crumbles, green onion, jalapeno peppers, salt and pepper. Cook over medium high heat until hot and then reduce to simmer.
  • 8In a large casserole dish layer 1/2 the pita chips, 1/2 the diced chicken, drizzle with 1/2 the remaining wing sauce, 1/2 the blue cheese sauce, 1/2 the celery and 1/2 a bag of each cheese. Repeat it all over again :)
  • 9Bake assembled Nachos in preheated oven for 15 minutes just until it is all melty. To long will make for a soggy pita chip.
  • 10Top with sliced radishes if you like and ENJOY

Chicken is my go-to when I just can't figure out what to make for dinner. Whenever I find myself wondering what to make, I grab a package at the market...
