Buffalo Chicken Dip Ingredients 

You’ll need:

  • 2 (8-oz) pkgs cream cheese
  • 2 cups blue cheese crumbles
  • 2 chicken breasts (poached & shredded or use canned chicken)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup buffalo wing sauce

Substitutions and Additions 

BUFFALO WING SAUCE: Feel free to substitute buffalo wing sauce for any of your favorite wing sauces, and play around with the amount until you find a suitable spice level. 

CHICKEN: Make this recipe even easier by using rotisserie chicken. 

CHEDDAR CHEESE: Swap out cheddar cheese for any of your melty favorites, like colby, or combine different types of cheese for extra deliciousness. Be sure to grate your cheese, as pre-shredded cheese doesn’t melt as well. 

How to Make This Buffalo Chicken Dip Recipe 

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 350°F.

STEP TWO: Poach and shred the chicken breasts. Set aside. 

PRO TIP: To shred the chicken, use two forks, one to hold the chicken breast in place and the other to pull it apart. 

STEP THREE: Heat the cream cheese in the microwave until it’s easily spreadable.

PRO TIP: Place the cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl before heating it!

STEP FOUR: In a large bowl, mix the softened cream cheese, blue cheese, chicken, shredded cheddar cheese, and buffalo sauce.

STEP FIVE: Pour the chicken mixture into an 8 by 8-inch baking dish.

STEP SIX: Sprinkle extra grated cheese on top (optional but delicious).

STEP SEVEN: Bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until it’s brown and crisp on top.

STEP EIGHT: Serve this easy buffalo chicken dip with vegetables, crackers, or your favorite chip. 

PRO TIP: This dip will be very hot out of the oven, so be careful when you dig in!

How To Serve

There’s no wrong time to whip this easy chicken buffalo dip, whether for friends and family or when you’re craving this cheesy, spicy chicken. Serve this dip alongside bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers and pretzel bites for the ultimate game day spread. 


IN THE FRIDGE: Place any leftovers in an airtight container or cover the pan in plastic wrap, place in the fridge and enjoy for two to three days. 

IN THE FREEZER: This easy buffalo chicken dip doesn’t freeze well, so we recommend whipping up a fresh batch when you’re craving it.

REHEATING INSTRUCTIONS: Reheat this dip in the microwave for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, or in the oven at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes. Be sure to cover it in foil, and don’t put a glass dish from the fridge directly into a hot oven, or it may crack. 

This easy chicken buffalo dip will quickly become your new favorite snack. Juicy shredded chicken, cream cheese, spicy buffalo sauce, savory blue cheese, and gooey melted cheddar make for an absolutely delicious combination; the pan will be empty before you know it! 


Question: Is buffalo chicken dip supposed to be runny?

Answer: It’s supposed to be a thicker dip, but it can be runny if you used more sauce or lower-fat cream cheese. To thicken it, add full-fat cream cheese or make a slurry of cornstarch and water and add it to the chicken mixture before cooking. 

Question: What do I serve with buffalo chicken dip?

Answer: This dip goes great with everything! You can serve it with your favorite vegetables, crackers, and chips. We recommend you use a sturdy chip to support all of that fantastic dip!

Question: Do I have to use Frank’s hot sauce?

Answer: That’s what we use in our recipe, but you can use your preferred brand of buffalo sauce or any of your favorite wing sauces.
