We’ve turned buffalo chicken wings into an out-of-this-world dip with this easy crockpot buffalo chicken dip. In this hot dip recipe, the melding of cheese, ranch dressing, hot sauce, and chicken does something wonderful in your mouth that is almost irresistible.

I’m also positive you should try this cream cheese dip — it’s a delicious dip as well. For another great appetizer, try these cucumber bites.

CROCKPOT BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP INGREDIENTS

You’ll need:

  • Frozen chicken breasts, minimum of 3 breasts
  • 8-ounce package cream cheese
  • 1 cup ranch dressing
  • 1 cup Red Hot sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

PRO TIP:

I like it best using freshly cooked chicken, but when you’re in a real hurry rotisserie chicken, leftover shredded chicken or canned chicken might be your top choice for this appetizer recipe.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

HEAT: To make this buffalo dip spicier, add more Red Hot sauce; or to make it less spicy, just add less!

CHEESE: You could also substitute other kinds of cheese such as Monterrey Jack or mozzarella cheese for the shredded cheddar in this cheesy dip. You could also serve this perfect appetizer with blue cheese as well! 

RANCH: If you prefer, you can use sour cream in place of the ranch dressing and mix in dry ranch mix to make this easy buffalo chicken dip

kitchen tools you actually need

HOW TO MAKE THIS CROCKPOT BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP RECIPE

STEP ONE: Using a large pan, place frozen chicken breasts inside. Cover with water and boil on high heat for about 20 minutes or until chicken is fully cooked — absolutely no pink! 

STEP TWO: In a large bowl or directly in the crockpot, mix the package of cream cheese, ranch dressing, Red Hot sauce and shredded cheese.

PRO TIP:

It’s best to shred the cheese yourself, store-bought shredded cheese is usually coated with an anti-caking agent that means it doesn’t melt quite as well.

STEP THREE: When the chicken is fully cooked, shred with a fork and toss into the bowl or crockpot with other ingredients.

STEP FOUR: Heat in a crockpot for about thirty minutes and you’ll have the yummiest creamy buffalo chicken dip!

HOW TO SERVE

Game day just got even better with this spicy chicken dip. There are plenty of things you can dip. Try veggies such as carrot sticks, cucumbers, and celery sticks are my top choices but you can’t go wrong with adding red and green bell peppers too. Tortilla chips, buttery crackers, or baguettes are a hands-down favorite carb for dipping. Breadsticks or pitas are additional options to serve with this delicious appetizer! 

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: Store leftovers of this slow cooker chicken dip in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 to 3 days.

Spicy with the perfect amount of heat, you’ll love this simple, homemade slow cooker buffalo chicken dip at your next gathering!
