I don’t think I’ve ever eaten Buffalo wings, but from my first bite of this Buffalo Chicken Dip, I was an instant fan. I have been making this since 2010 and it’s always a hit!
Buffalo Chicken Dip
When my friend, Sally, made this dip for a Labor Day party, the men hovered around the dish until it was devoured. I found this recipe for Frank’s Redhot version and modified for a party just weeks later. Hearty and cheesy, I haven’t met anyone who didn’t adore this buffalo chicken dip!
A No Brainer
I use a rotisserie chicken to make this super easy. I put the hubby on the task of removing the chicken meat from the carcass. He’s a good sport and always helps in the kitchen, but the number of questions he asked was comical! I promise, it’s simple! Softened cream cheese is spread on the bottom of a baking dish, then the blue cheese salad dressing, hot sauce, cheese, and chicken were mixed together, spread over the cream cheese, and baked. I used mozzarella to give a gooey factor to this dip, but blue cheese is another popular alternative.
