Our easy buffalo chicken dip recipe is a divine mixture of succulent shredded chicken, salty cheddar cheese, smooth cream cheese, hot buffalo wing sauce, and blue cheese. This perfect appetizer recreates the flavors of buffalo chicken wings being dipped in blue cheese dressing.

Little Smokies or devilled eggs are also classic additions to an appetizer menu that will never steer you wrong.

Buffalo Chicken Dip Ingredients

You’ll need:

  • 2 (8-ounce) packages of cream cheese
  • 2 cups of blue cheese crumbles
  • 2 chicken breasts (poached & shredded or use canned chicken)
  • 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup buffalo wing sauce

PRO TIP:

It’s best to shred the cheese yourself, store-bought shredded cheese is usually covered with a coating that means it doesn’t melt quite as well.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

CHICKEN: To make it even easier, you could get a cooked rotisserie chicken and shred it or just use canned chicken in this easy recipe.

HOT SAUCE: We like Frank’s hot sauce for this buffalo dip recipe but if you have another favorite hot sauce, you can certainly use that instead.

How To Make This Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe

STEP ONE: Preheat oven to 350°F.

STEP TWO: Poach and shred two chicken breasts.

STEP THREE: Heat cream cheese in the microwave until easily spreadable.

STEP FOUR: Blend together the softened cream cheese, blue cheese, chicken, shredded cheddar, and buffalo sauce.

PRO TIP:

I used ¼ cup of hot sauce but you can use more or less depending on the spice level you like.

STEP FIVE: Put all of the chicken mixture into an 8×8-inch baking dish.

How To Serve

This is the best buffalo chicken dip recipe around and an obvious choice to serve at your super bowl party or family gatherings. There are so many ways that you can serve buffalo chicken dip — and that’s what makes it one of the best things to serve at parties. You can’t go wrong pairing this dip with celery or carrot sticks. Cucumber slices and raw broccoli work, too.

Although I prefer this easy appetizer warm, you can serve your homemade buffalo chicken dip recipe hot, warm or cold, which means that it doesn’t even need to be freshly baked.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: Leftover spicy buffalo chicken dip can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container or covered in plastic wrap for two to three days.

IN THE FREEZER: We don’t recommend freezing this creamy dip as all the creamy components may separate when thawed.

Stick a big old dish of this delicious dip in the middle of the table surrounded by anything dippable and sharing just got a whole lot more fun! And don’t forget to serve some sour cream or ranch dressing for those who can’t handle the heat.
