This buffalo chicken dip is a family favorite recipe to make for cook outs or for a get together. It is super easy to make and you only need a few ingredients! But my favorite thing about this buffalo chicken dip is that it tastes just as great with celery and carrots as it does with chips. So you can chow down!

To make this buffalo chicken dip you’ll need a few simple ingredients.

First, you’ll need about a pound of shredded chicken. You can season, bake and shred your own chicken. You can super cheat and use can chicken. I only recommend this if you are in a pinch and need to make this buffalo chicken dip super quick. My favorite is to shred an already cooked rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. This tastes great and saves the time of cooking the chicken yourself.

For the rest of your ingredients, you’ll need 1 cup of ranch, an 8oz block of cream cheese and 1 cup of your favorite buffalo chicken wing sauce. If you are making this dip with kids in mind, you’ll probably want to aim for the mild version of the wing sauce. If you prefer blue cheese over ranch, you can use blue cheese instead. Then grab a few ingredients to dip with. I always get tortilla chips, celery and carrots.

In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, melt the block of cream cheese. Once this is melted, add in the ranch (or blue cheese) and buffalo chicken wing sauce and continue to stir until blended together. You can add more or less of ranch and buffalo chicken wing sauce to flavor as you like. Last, stir in your shredded chicken and it’s ready to serve!

    I wonder if I can do this with left over chicken. Sometimes I don’t know what to do with it.

    This sounds like an interesting recipe. I’d never have thought to use chicken in a dip, that really is something different. It’s great it works with vegetable sticks.

    I really like your star container, it’s reminds me of the beach. While I have not eaten chicken in over 20 years, there make a version of this dip that I can make with tofu instead.
