Buffalo Chicken Dip

This is one of the easiest, fastest appetizers you can make.. and most of the ingredients are probably in your pantry right now.  That makes it perfect for everything from guests who just happen to pop in, to throwing it in a crock pot and bringing it to a tailgating party.

Ingredients: (for a crowd)
20 Servings

  • 2 (10 oz)        Cans chunk chicken, drained  
    • (or a better alternative - use 1 lb cooked chicken breasts) 
  • 2 (8 oz)          Pkgs cream cheese, softened 
  • 1 cup             Ranch dressing 
  • ¾ cup            Hot sauce or hot wing sauce (my favorite is Moore’s Buffalo Wing Sauce) 
  • 1 ½ cup         Shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese

Canon looks sad, but he actually just figured out that if you look through the little "window" at the top of the "cheese machine," you can see the cheese falling into the middle.  He was fascinated.
 Season and pan cook the chicken.
 Cook until golden brown but still tender and juicy.
Since the chicken is cooked, just mix and heat.  It's that easy!!
Serve with celery, crackers, etc.  No joke – the celery is awesome with it!

Written Method:
Cook chicken if using fresh.  Add the seasonings of your choice (I used salt, pepper, garlic powder, basil, oregano) and pan cook the chicken in a little canola oil and butter until cooked through but still tender and juicy.  To make it easier to eat, shred the chicken into small pieces.

To make for a gathering....
Heat chicken and hot sauce in skillet over medium heat until heated through.  Stir in cream cheese and ranch dressing.  Cook, stirring until well blended and warm.  Mix in half of the shredded cheese, and transfer the mixture to a slow cooker.  Sprinkle cheese over the top, cover, and cook on low setting until hot and bubbly (about 40 min).  

To make for yourself (smile).....
Just throw it all in a pot and heat it together until it's all melted and smooth.

  2. Thank You Julie for sharing your recipes. I have enjoyed every one I have tried so far.
    Last night, we had an impromptu gathering to attend. I checked your blog for a spinach/artichoke dip...
    But came across your buffalo chicken dip. Everyone at dinner was excited to have this dip in to enjoy.
    I don't know how you do it all, but I appreciate the time you take to share!
