How to make Buffalo Chicken Dip:

First, you need cooked chicken. I usually cook up some shredded chicken in my slow cooker. Place 1 pound in the crockpot (THIS one is my favorite crockpot) and cook on high for 4 hours, or low for 6 hours. No liquids needed, just salt and pepper.

When the chicken is done, you can shred it with two forks. Or, for perfect shredded chicken, use your mixer for about 15 seconds and it will shred up nicely.

You can also use precooked chicken, like a rotisserie chicken. Shred and put in a bowl.

Add your softened cream cheese, sour cream, buffalo sauce (Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo sauce is my favorite), and one cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Mix all of that together.

Place in a small, oven safe dish (about 1.5qt size). Sprinkle a little extra cheddar over the top (because, duh, more cheese!!!!).

Bake your Buffalo Chicken Dip in a 350 degree F oven for about 15-20 minutes, uncovered, until the cheese is golden, and mixture is bubbly! Once it’s done, drizzle a little blue cheese dressing over the top (or Ranch if you prefer).

  1. Yum! I love the idea of making this into a dinner, why should party food just be for special occasions, I vote that it should be for all the time! I also love the use of the word “scoopers” Lol.  why is there a name for dip, but not for what we used to scoop up the dip? Now there is! Thanks so much !

  2. Keeper for week end gatherings 🙂

    I can’t eat spicy things – like the Buffalo Sauce. Is there something that can be substituted – like a mild salsa or something similar?
