Buffalo Chicken Dip
When we have family gatherings, everyone brings a dish to share. I usually bring a delicious dessert, but this one particular year, I was asked to bring Buffalo Chicken Dip to our Christmas party.
I had never made it before but I was up for the task! So, I did what any good home cook would do, I turned to Google and researches a bunch of recipes and combined them for this amazingly cheesy dip. It turned out delicious!
What Are The Ingredients for Buffalo Chicken Dip?
- Canned Chicken – I know! It sounds crazy but it’s good! You could substitute with whole chicken breasts shredded. I would guess that 2 chicken breasts would be perfect!
- Cheddar Cheese – I like the sharp shredded cheese kind!
- Cream Cheese – Can you EVER have enough cheese?
- Ranch Salad Dressing – Yep. I said RANCH. I think cools down the hot sauce in this spicy appetizer dip. You could Blue Cheese Dressing if you’d like.
- Buffalo Chicken Sauce – I like Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce!
- Blue Cheese Crumbles – I don’t have this on my dip BUT it’s a hit for a lot of people. Try it out!
How to Make Buffalo Chicken Dip
It’s so easy to make this Buffalo Chicken Dip quickly!
- Combine chicken and buffalo sauce in a pan on the stove or in a crockpot.
- Mix cream cheese and ranch dressing right in the pan.
- Stir in cheddar cheese until melted.
- As soon as everything is all melted together and hot – you’re good to go!
Note: This chicken wing dip uses canned chicken but you can also use leftover cooked shredded chicken or rotisserie chicken.
How Do You Make Buffalo Chicken Dip in the Crock Pot?
Buffalo Chicken Dip can easily be made in the crockpot. All you need to do is add ALL of the ingredients below into the crock pot and turn on low for 3-4 hours.
Once all of the ingredients are completely melted and heated through, give it a good stir.
Next, switch the crock pot to the warm setting to keep this cheesy and spicy dip nice and creamy for your party!
How Do You Make Buffalo Chicken Dip in the Oven?
It’s one of THE easiest recipes to make!
Prepare the recipe as directed in the recipe card below. Then pour into medium baking dish and sprinkle 1/2 cup of the shredded cheddar cheese on top and bake for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly. It’s then ready to eat!
A great way to keep this warm is to use a crockpot on the counter or to take with you on the go!
If you bake it in a dish, use a thermal carrier to keep your dish warm. I love mine and use it often!
You can also bake for 20 minutes or until mixture is heated through and it’s hot and bubbly.
