Cheesy creamy Buffalo Chicken Dip is the perfect game day snack. This easy recipe is a family classic, and you'll find yourself wishing you doubled the recipe!


  • 1 pound chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • 8 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup buffalo sauce (Frank's Red Hots is my favorite)
  • 1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 Tablespoons blue cheese dressing, or Ranch, for garnish
  • Fritos scoops, baguette slices, carrot/celery, for dipping


  1. In a large bowl, combine shredded chicken, cream cheese, sour cream, buffalo sauce, and 1 cup of the shredded cheddar cheese.
  2. Mix with a large spatula until fully combined. Spread in the bottom of a 1.5 qt baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining ½ cup cheddar cheese over the top.
  3. Bake in a 350 degree F oven, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  4. Remove from oven and immediately drizzle with blue cheese or ranch dressing. Serve with baguette slices, Fritos scoops, and/or carrots and celery. ENJOY!


  • Use a rotisserie chicken for easy dinner prep!
  • A cast iron skillet is a great option to cook this dip in the oven. The cast iron keeps the dip warm and cheesy longer than a traditional baking dish.
  • Want more spice? Add a few drops of hot sauce to the recipe.
  • Make it in the microwave! Using a microwave safe dish, cover with plastic wrap and heat for several minutes.
  • Slow Cooker option! Add all the ingredients in a small crockpot and heat on low for 3 hours, or high for 1 hours. Serve warm.
