Buffalo Chicken Dip


I don't really like to eat buffalo wings unless they are boneless and an appetizer that I don't have to cook. Buffalo sauce never really appealed to me until I had kids. Maybe it was because I had craved spicy foods during my pregnancy with my first born: Spicy foods and chocolate milk. I also developed a craving for Diet Coke- which is weird because before I was pregnant, I only drank Diet Pepsi, and it was also torture because I didn't want to drink soda/pop while I was pregnant.


I had never really given buffalo chicken dip a try until someone brought some in for a potluck at work. Then it became a favorite of mine for every potluck and we really took advantage of having them every last Friday of the month because that was also our one dress down day.

After I left work to stay home with my kids, I actually missed eating buffalo chicken dip, so I found a recipe and tried it out. I was so happy I did because it was SOOO easy to make.


Don't mind the scuffs in my table. We bought it when we only had ONE child.
Now we're waiting for them to grow up a little before we replace it. 

There are only five ingredients, which makes this so easy to make.

What you'll need:

2 cans of precooked chicken
3/4 cup of Buffalo Sauce- We like to use Frank's Red Hot Wings Buffalo Sauce

1 cup Ranch Dressing
2 Packages of cream cheese
2 cups cheddar cheese- We like to buy the bricks and shred them, but the kind that are shredded and bagged are fine, too.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven at 400 degrees.
  • Soften Cream cheese by leaving it out 30 minutes before you begin or remove wrapper and microwave it in a microwave safe bowl or plate. 
  • In a mixing bowl, add chicken, cream cheese, buffalo sauce, ranch dressing, and cup of cheese.
  • Combine the mixture until mixture appears smooth. 
  • Add mixture to an oven safe pie plate or dip plate/pan.

  • Sprinkle remaining cheese over the mixture.
  • Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese starts to brown. 


  • Wait until dip has cooled to a nice warm temperature before eating.

You can use whatever you like to use for dipping. 

We like to use tortilla chips and cucumbers. Others use chicken crackers and celery.






Conclusion


As you can see, it's very easy to make this recipe and what's even better, is that if you want to bring this to a potluck, you can just throw these all into a slow cooker and after being in it on low, you'll be able to mix it easily and just keep it on warm throughout the day. 

It's super easy and very convertible.

I hope you enjoy this recipe, today and don't forget to check out our recipe tab for more!

    1. My husband and I will eat it as a meal with cucumbers when my garden produces them. It's so filling and we can eat it for a few different meals because you fill up quickly.

    1. This one is really good and easily adjustable, too. Want more spice, add more buffalo sauce. If you want it creamier, add more ranch.

    1. When I go to Sam's Club, I always stock up on their canned chicken because it's so much cheaper than buying them off the shelf one can at a time. Now, when I feel like eating some, I just whip it together.

    1. I think it's like a paprika/cayenne pepper mix of a sauce, but I could also be totally wrong.

  11. Sounds like the perfect appetizer for Mother's Day! I'm vegetarian, so I will have to make it a lil different for me but I can prepare it for the guests. Thanks for sharing!

    1. You could probably make it with a meat substitute, and actually, cauliflower would probably give it the same texture, because it's very creamy once it's mixed in.
