Buffalo Chicken Dip is my new favorite tailgating dip! It is creamy and delicious, with just a little bit of a kick. Great for dipping chips or veggies.
My husband found this recipe on food.com and wanted me to make it for him a few weeks ago. Of course, I had to make adjustments to my liking. This Game Day Buffalo Chicken Dip turned out WAY better than I thought it would. It is possibly my new favorite “Game Day” dip! It is creamy and delicious, with just a little bit of a kick.
My favorite is to dip celery sticks in it (as seen above).. it makes me feel like I am eating something somewhat healthy (even though, let’s be honest, this dip is FAR FROM healthy.. no matter what you dip into it).
Game Day Buffalo Chicken Dip
- 2 Lbs. chicken boiled and shredded
- 1 12oz bottle Frank's Hot Sauce (Original -- not Buffalo Style)
- 2 8oz packages cream cheese, softened
- 1 16 oz bottle Ranch OR Blue cheese dressing (both taste awesome, it's really your preference)
- 2 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 c. blue cheese crumbles optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a 9x13 glass baking pan, combine the cooked, shredded chicken meat with the entire bottle of Frank's, spreading to form an even layer.
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine cream cheese and entire bottle of Ranch (or Blue cheese) dressing, stirring til hot and smooth. Pour this mixture evenly over chicken mixture.
Bake for 25 min. Add shredded cheese and bake for another 5-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes. Top with optional blue cheese crumbles.
Serve with celery sticks, Triscuits, or sturdy chips (regular tortilla chips will break apart).
