This Buffalo Chicken Dip is one of the most popular recipes on the blog. Creamy and full of spiciness that all men love, this dip will be the most popular dip for watching the game.
Any given Sunday during football season if you show up at our house we will be eating this. John doesn’t like to eat a lot before games so when we come home after the game he’s starving. I always fix this quick dip to take the edge off while I finish up making dinner. Don’t be turned off by the picture…it’s hard to make this dip look pretty. I have heard this referred to as “Crack Dip” because it’s so addicting. This is not for the faint of heart; it has some heat! My sister-in-law Kim introduced this Buffalo Chicken Dip to the Denney family since they love Buffalo chicken flavored anything. We couldn’t wait until John’s first home game so we made it to take to our friend’s house to watch the BYU game. Go Cougars. What a great game!
John was sneaking bites so I made his hand be in the shot.
1 1/2 cups cooked and shredded chicken or 1 (12 ounce) can chunk chicken, drained
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Ranch dressing
1/2 cup Buffalo wing sauce (such as Frank's Red Hot, not to be confused with their pepper sauce. Start with less if you want and add more to your desired hotness.)
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
blue cheese crumbles (optional)
Heat chicken and Buffalo sauce in a skillet over medium heat, until heated through. Make sure to break up the chicken so there are no big chunks. Stir in cream cheese and ranch dressing. Cook, stirring until well blended and warm. Mix in shredded cheese. Pour into a shallow dish or pie pan and sprinkle with blue cheese crumbles and microwave it until the cheese melts. We usually only sprinkle blue cheese on half of it for those who aren’t blue cheese fans. Serve with chips for dipping.
