This buffalo dip is a winner every time I serve it. I don’t make my buffalo dip too spicy because we have kids eating it who tend not to like very spicy foods. However, if I am making this recipe for the guys’ game day snacks, I do kick up the heat by adding some extra cayenne pepper.

I tested what type of chicken is best in buffalo dip. Here is what I found.

I have made this dip with my Instant Pot Shredded Chicken and Crock Pot Pulled Chicken several times. But one day, I was in a hurry and picked up a whole rotisserie chicken. I pulled and chopped a combination of chicken breast meat and dark meat from the rotisserie chicken. The flavor of the roasted chicken and the combination of juicy meats made the dip really delicious. The best part about using rotisserie chicken meat is the amount of time it saves you, omitting the cooking of chicken meat.

Ingredients for Buffalo Chicken Dip

ingredients for buffalo chicken dip
  • Cream cheese: The cream chees is what makes this dip thick and creamy. 
  • Shredded cheeses: Get some sharp cheddar and pepperjack cheese. I buy finely shredded cheese, but you can also buy it in block form and shred it yourself. 
  • Blue Cheese: I do not put the blue cheese crumbles into the buffalo dip. Sprinkling them on the top works best. 
  • Ranch dressing: You can pick up our favorite brand of ranch dressing, but be sure it’s a thick variety.   
  • Hot sauce: My personal favorite is Frank’s Red Hot sauce. However, if you have a favorite buffalo sauce brand, go ahead and use that. I also like to use buffalo wing sauce for a milder chicken dip. 
  • Seasonings: You will need salt, pepper, garlic powder, and, if you want some extra heat, cayenne pepper.

 How to Make Buffalo Chicken Dip 

number one

Recipe Tips

  • It’s very important to soften your cream cheese before blending it with the other ingredients.  Don’t skip this step. Place the unwrapped cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl or plate. Microwave on the soften setting for about two minutes.  If you do not have a soften setting, set your microwave power to medium-low. Keep an eye on it to avoid melting.
  • Discard the rotisserie chicken skin. Only put the meat into this recipe. The skin will make the dip greasy.

Serving Suggestions

  • Tortilla chips
  •  Corn chips (my husband’s favorite)
  • Celery sticks
  • Carrot sticks
  • Cucumber slices 
  • Crackers
  • Pretzel chips

How to Store Leftovers and Reheat

Storage: To store leftovers, place them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. 

Reheat leftovers: To reheat, simply place the desired amount in a microwave-safe dish and heat on high in 30-second intervals until warm. Stir the dip between intervals for even heating.

Leftover serving ideas: You can serve the leftovers as a dip, but it is also great topped on baked potatoes or spread on a sandwich.
