How to make the BEST Buffalo Chicken Dip: 

There are just three simple steps to create this buffalo chicken dip: 

Step 1: Prepare Chicken!  Use that pre-cooked, delicious rotisserie chicken that you can pick up hot and fresh at the grocery store. You could also use canned chicken if you want to make this recipe even easier. You could also use leftover Turkey as it will taste the same in a dish like this! 

Step 2: Creamy Base!  You’ll need to make your creamy base of cream cheese, buffalo sauce and ranch dressing. You’ll want to use room temperature cream cheese or soften it a little before mixing it in with the buffalo sauce and ranch dressing. This will make it easier to stir together, and help make sure that cream cheesy goodness is in every bite. 

Step 3: Cheese!  This is a cheesy Buffalo Chicken Dip and will require two kinds of yummy cheese!  

Step 4: Bake!  Bake, Stir and Serve!  It’s really that easy!

How to make the Best Buffalo Chicken Dip in the crock pot: 

  • Dump all ingredients into your crock pot and give it a stir.  
  • Plug your crock pot in and set your timer.  High – 1 ½ hours, stirring every 30 minutes, or Low – 3 hours, stirring every hour. 
  • Depending on when you’re wanting this ready to share, choose your setting accordingly. Making this buffalo ranch chicken dip in the crock pot makes it that much easier! 

If you’re bringing this buffalo chicken dip to a potluck, I recommend taking it along in a crock pot. That way the dip stays warm as long as you have a place to plug it in. 



Can you make the Best Buffalo Chicken Dip ahead of time? 

Absolutely! Assemble the chicken, sauces, and cheeses in your baking dish, then cover it with plastic wrap or the right lid. This pre-made buffalo chicken dip will stay good in the fridge for up to three days. 

When you’re ready to bake, just take it out of the fridge while you’re preheating the oven. Depending on how it looks once you stir it up after the baking time, you might want to add a few extra minutes in the heat! 



Can you freeze Buffalo Chicken Dip? 

Sure! You can prepare this easy buffalo chicken dip so that you have one less thing to do before entertaining the guests that are sure to devour it, just prep the sauces, chicken, and cheeses in your dish and seal it in an airtight container! The dish should stay good in your freezer for up to 3 months. 

Take it out to thaw thoroughly prior to baking. You might want to add an extra 5 minutes or so after freezing just to make sure all the cheeses are completely melted. But you can always pop it back in after giving it a good stir! 




How long is Buffalo Chicken Dip good for? 

If you somehow end up with leftovers of this delicious dip, it should last in your fridge for up to three days if you’re sure to cover it properly. Just remember to keep it in an airtight container! We’ve got chicken and cheese in here, so keep them protected from the elements of your refrigerator.
