I may not know who is playing in the Superbowl this year (Does anyone? Have the teams been chosen? Do they even get chosen? How does this thing you call “football” even work?), but I know darn good and well that I’m going to be required to make thirty-seven different appetizers and dips for the game.
Oh, yes. My husband had that written into our marriage vows.
“I promise to love you forever ’til death to us part so long as you make me snacks on Superbowl Sunday.”
The wedding guests had never seen a more ridiculous wedding before.
Anyway, this Baked Buffalo Chicken Dip is perfect for the big game or for anytime you need a tasty dip. Tender chunks of chicken, creamy and melty cheese, plus plenty of buffalo sauce…what’s not to love about this?
We serve this with an assortment of veggies and crackers. It’s even delicious spread on our beer bread!

Buffalo Chicken Dip Ingredients:
Chicken – Some recipes call for canned chicken, but we like the flavor and texture of fresh chicken best. A rotisserie chicken is perfect here!
Ranch Dressing – We usually just use Hidden Valley, or choose your own!
Blue Cheese Dressing – You can substitute with more ranch if you don’t like blue cheese!
Buffalo Sauce – We use Frank’s Red Hot. It adds the perfect hit of spice.
Crumbled Blue Cheese – You all may know that I am personally not a blue cheese fan, so I sub in cheddar when I’m making this for my family. For others, we go the blue cheese route.

How To Make Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe:
Mix: This is the best buffalo chicken dip recipe because it is about as simple as it gets, assuming you will be using a rotisserie chicken or already have pre-cooked chicken ready to go.
Shred up the chicken and add it to a mixing bowl with the cheeses, the dressings, and your hot sauce!
Mix all of the ingredients together until they are well combined.
Bake: If necessary you can go ahead and transfer the dip mix to an oven safe dish and start baking! It won’t take long, only about twenty minutes.
Once it has finished baking you can serve this easy buffalo chicken dip with your favorite chips, crackers, bread or whatever you dip with!
We love dipping celery and carrots or King’s Hawaiian bread in buffalo chicken dip. It’s also delicious spread on crackers or crostini. Tortilla chips make a great dipping option as well, but be sure to get a thick style of tortilla chip to hold up to the dip.
Absolutely! Prepare the dip according to instructions and then cover with foil and refrigerate prior to baking. When you’re ready to serve, just bake this off as instructed, adding an extra 10 minutes of bake time if it’s cold from the fridge.
We often skip the blue cheese entirely and swap it for shredded cheddar. Double up on the ranch dressing in place of the blue cheese dressing.
