Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo Chicken Dip is a classic appetizer for parties. It tastes just like buffalo chicken wings but served as a dip.  The cheesy and creamy chicken dip can either be baked in the oven or made in a slow cooker.

The classic dip typically includes cream cheese, shredded cheddar, Ranch dressing, cooked chicken, and Franks Hot sauce. I like to add my personal touch with Greek yogurt and bleu cheese. The yogurt adds creaminess to the dip and the bleu cheese gives it a kick of flavor!

TIPS How to make Buffalo Chicken Dip

  • Be sure your cream cheese is softened and at room temperature so it beats and isn’t lumpy and will melt during the baking.
  • Use a block of cheese and grate, the cheese performs better, optional.
  • The dip can be prepared ahead of time, even the night before. Keep dip covered and refrigerated. Add 5 minutes baking time since dip will be cold if made ahead of time.
  • Crumble chicken with a mixer before adding remaining ingredients.
  • Beat all of the ingredients together with a mixer it will ensure even creaminess and flavors.

    If I dont use the blue cheese, will it really change the taste?

    • Valentina's Corner 10/23/2018, 9:53 am

      Hi, Irene! If you are leaving it out because you don’t like the taste of bleu cheese, add it you would never know it’s in there but it gives it a unique flavor!
      If you are leaving it out because you don’t have it and don’t want to go shopping, leave it out, it will not make that big of a difference. 🙂 <3 You're in for a treat!
