How to Make Delicious Buffalo Chicken Dip

Updated on April 10, 2014


Pretty much every time I go out to eat I look for a Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, and if the place has it, it's what I order. I end up getting it a lot because it's one of my favorite things. Buffalo sauce and ranch on the side to maintain the texture of the breading on the chicken. ;) My foodies know what I'm talking about.

I first had Buffalo Chicken Dip at my friend's house for New Years Eve. It was probably the only thing I had beside the alcohol. lol Well she found the recipe online and I figured out how to make it the way I like it. The first time making it I made a smaller amount than the recipe I found since I didn't need to make a ton of it.

Buffalo Chicken Dip Directions

  1. Set cream cheese out to come to room temperature. I like to open the package and cut the cream cheese up into planks or blocks to help the process along.
  2. Salt and pepper your chicken and cook, shred and set aside. Or open your canned chicken, drain and set aside.
  3. Once cream cheese is softened, put into a bowl and beat with a mixer to break it up a bit.
  4. Measure out your Ranch Dressing and Hot Sauce and combine in a bowl, keep mixing till smooth. It will come out a light pink color depending on how much Hot Sauce you added.
  5. Fold in your shredded chicken.
  6. I used a pie pan as my vessel. Spray your vessel so nothing sticks and pile in your mixture. Spread out into an even layer. It shouldn't be a thick layer, maybe a half inch thick.
  7. Top with cheddar cheese to cover the top.
  8. Set your oven to 350 F on convection.
  9. Let cook for 15 minutes.
  10. Take out after 15 minutes and LET IT COOL. It will be very hot and I burnt my mouth a little because I was impatient.
  11. Enjoy! Use any kind of tortilla chip you'd like. I used Scoops.

It's A Great Treat!

I know that this will be a staple for me. It's so easy, simple and delicious! It's great warm, room temperature and even a little cold. Letting it cool a bit will help it set up a bit.

Please let me know how you liked it if you tried this recipe! Or if you made a variation of it.
