How To Make Easy Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe
Buffalo Chicken Dip Ingredients:
1 cream cheese block 8 oz
1/2 cup ranch dressing
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 cans chicken, drained (or one large can, approximately 12.5 oz)
6-7 tablespoons Buffalo sauce
Step 1: In a large pot over medium-low heat, combine cream cheese and ranch dressing. I usually find it easiest to dice up my cream cheese so that it heats faster.
Step 2: Once melted, add your buffalo wing sauce in and stir to combine.
Step 3: Add your shredded cheddar cheese and stir until it’s nice and stringy when you lift the whisk or spoon.
Step 4: Drain the chicken while it is still in the can. Break up each of the cans of chicken with a spoon. Add the now-drained chicken pieces to the mixture.
Step 5: Stir everything together until the cheese is completely melted and all of the ingredients are combined.
Step 6: Taste your delicious dip to see if it is spicy enough for you. If you want some additional kick, add a little more spicy buffalo sauce. There is a reason that buffalo wings come in various levels of spice!
Step 7: Once your dip has cooked through, pour it into a serving bowl. Top with some green onions or parsley, and a little bit of remaining shredded cheese or blue cheese crumbles.
Enjoy this easy buffalo dip recipe with tortilla chips or celery sticks, bell peppers, and carrot sticks.
How To Store Leftover Buffalo Chicken Dip With Canned Chicken
Store any leftover dip in a large bowl in the refrigerator under plastic wrap or in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Do I Have To Use Canned Chicken For This Creamy Dip?
No! This recipe calls for white meat canned chicken because it works well and keeps your total time for prep down, but you can use other options.
If you’d prefer to use fresh chicken or have cooked chicken breasts, leftover rotisserie chicken, or shredded chicken in the fridge, this is a good choice for using up leftover chicken.
Just make sure that the chicken you are adding to this yummy dip is cooked all the way through before adding it to the mixture.

If you aren't a big fan of Buffalo sauce, I would start with 4 Tbsp and add more if you choose. The more you add, the spicier it will be! As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases.
